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:
L-R: Rachel, Ali, Mom (Marlys), Me, Karen (Us 4 sisters!)
Tori, a friend from high school, trying to look taller than me! (She’s not.)
Sis Rachel made Ali a bunch of gifts, just a couple shown here. Rachel HATES veggies, thus, the humor in the embroidered onesie below:
Tres cute Rocket racer overall:
Rachel makes gorgeous baby clothes from vintage and novelty fabrics/trims and sells them on ETSY. Check out her shop and blog!

Goofing with Ali’s belly:
Karen and friend since forever, “Fifth Frank Daughter” Kyleen:
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 Ravelry.com. 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.)
