Rachel's Carlson/Wright Family Wedding Shower hosted by Julie

So excited for her first wedding shower.  Sunday, June 14, it is pouring rain, but nothing is going to dampen this day for Rachel or her mom.  These are the days you dream of when the doctor tells you, you have a baby girl.  Yes, back in olden days, most of us didn't know what sex our child would be. You are holding your breath (not with pain) with anticipation for the moment when the Doctor or Nurse says "You have a lovely little daughter".  

My nieces Julie and Miranda and their mom Eileen started planning for the shower back in January.  Our family has a remarkable number of women in it.  So needless to say whenever there is a celebration there are lots of helpers. 

Although Rachel was  missing having her grandmother's with her today, we are blessed with having 3rd cousins.  This is Maureen with her granddaughter Chelsea and her great grandson River.  Yes that makes him my Great Great Nephew.  Being a typical Wright male he loves being surrounded by women.
Julie put on a lovely spread with homemade lasagna and mac and cheese.  Still all time favourites and delicious.



Finally it was time to open the presents.  Alexis offered to help Rachel keep track of everything.  

Julie's friend Sherry made a lovely cake for Rachel and was I excited to see it was chocolate when Julie cut it open.  


Tea cups and tea are making a comeback.  A little reminder of our past generations.  I haven't seen a tea cosy in forever and I think the last time I saw one David had it on his head with his ears sticking out the holes for the handle and spout.
 The future mothers-in-laws-to-be.  

A big thank you to Julie, Mir and Eileen and everyone who brought food, etc.  Also thank you family for coming.  Time is becoming the biggest commodity out there and we never seem to have enough of it so thank you for sharing this special occasion with Rachel and me.  xoxoxoxoxo
