Allie was thrilled to celebrate with Aunt Stephanie, the bride-to-be: Allie's favorite part was helping to open the presents: Or maybe it was giving Aunt Stephanie her very own present. She was insistent upon purchasing my sister a hot pad for her wedding shower. After Allie picked out the hot pad, I was able to convince her to pick a matching towel and washcloth too. And, who do you think picked out the gift bag? Stephanie opened a bunny. Allie kissed the bunny: Allie was proud to display the wedding rehearsal bouquet put together by my Aunt and Grandma: And, even though she had very little sleep the night before and had absolutely no nap, this was her demeanor for the duration of the shower: We had a great weekend celebrating with the bride-to-be.
Now, Allie is eagerly anticipating the wedding day when Chris B. will finally become her uncle and, in Allie's words, "He will be ALL MINE!" Hmmm...I wonder if Aunt Stephanie knows she has a little competition!
