Baby Showers for Ali

Leave a comment

 Had two showers, while in MN, for my sister Ali.  She’s expecting the first week of July.  Little guys getting antsy, though!

Mom’s friend Nancy made this ADORABLE baby quilt from the Dick and Jane collection of fabrics:

Sis Rachel made Ali a bunch of gifts, just a couple shown here. Rachel HATES veggies, thus, the humor in the embroidered onesie below:

Had to thow this in.  My brother in law Tyler, (Rachel’s hubby) is a fish-a-holic. That’s actually his degree from school.  He follows the fishing community news/contests like I follow knitting on  Who knew we’d be kindred spirits?

Must be true love between the two since she lets him keep buckets of live fish in the kitchen and worms/fish in the fridge…ah…true love! This is a type of Sunfish, I forget the name. It will go live in his parent’s stocked lake and (hopefully) populate the lake.  (Its colors were really pretty.)
