Hope's Baby Shower

Last week we had a baby shower for Hope and Baby William.

Deborah made this cute fruit basket...

...and Melissa made the cakes.

William's Mommy

The adorable big sister

Cute little girlies

As one of the activities, the guests decorated bibs for William.

I loved Emma's bib for her baby brother!

More bibs

Trying to guess which baby item is inside the bag

Hope opens the bags

For another game we passed around a page of baby pictures and gave each guest 90 seconds to guess which pictures were the baby's daddy, mommy, and three older siblings.

Here is the picture.  If you know the Gallaghers, and want to try to identify them, leave us a comment with your guess!  (The other 4 pictures are random babies from Google.)

Opening the gifts

Emma is getting sleepy!  (It was her nap time.)

Emma enjoyed showing off William's gifts.

Her favorite was the pacifier...

...even though she already had two of her own!

Congratulations to all the Gallaghers - we can hardly wait to meet your little William!

July 4th

In the evening of July 4th we met with friends from church at Pickwick lake for the fireworks display.

Eva is happy to see Granny Smith!

The children always enjoy going down by the water!

Helping the little ones down the rocks can be pretty tricky! Especially if they have on flip flops! :)
