A Southern Party: Amy’s Baby Shower

IMG_7726

With the name of our blog being “Stroll Through The South,” we cannot help but talk about the ultimate Southern experience, a shower! With everything being bigger in the South, we typically go all out for most occasions and having babies are no exception.  My husband’s family is a testament to this. Among my husbands cousins, we are about to welcome the 5th baby in a year, Ivey Cross Cassady! So, what better way to celebrate sweet Ivey then to shower her mommy with sweet baby essentials?

Because I love a good shower and I am excited to entertain in the new house, I gladly volunteered to host when we started planning.

Last Wednesday Papa James, the grandfather of the father to be, passed away. We considered canceling the shower on Saturday.  However, after getting the ok from the matriarch, Mama Hedy, the shower was on. While it was a sad weekend for the family, it was also a reminder of the Lord’s glorious thoughtfulness when he created the cycle of life. With the death of an elder, comes the joy of a new baby. And, oh what joy Luke and Amy have coming as they welcome their new love in a few short months.

Here are a few snaps of the party!
