After a week of worry about the weather...yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day for a surprise bridal shower. Holly gave her sister, the Bride to Be a wonderful shower with an Asian theme. Meagan was surprised, which is a miracle, as her house is just a hop, skip and a jump from our house, where the party was held.

Holly did all the planning and searching for just the right menu, favors and decorations. She baked and decorated the cake . While Meagan opened her gifts, Holly's darling husband, Chad, prepared all the food. Beef and broccoli, asian chicken, vegetable stir fry, rice and more.

Early yesterday morning we popped up the tents, put up the tables
and began to transform the back yard.

A gathering of family and friends came to shower the bride to be and her future husband.

The favors were wooden chopsticks tied with red ribbon and
small Chinese food carry out boxes filled with Wockenfuss chocolates.

The soon to be married couple received so many wonderful gifts.

Meagan's friend Lenore made the beautiful hat for her
to wear from the ribbons and bows on the gifts.

How blessed Lou and I are that our dear daughter has found
such a wonderful young man to spend the rest of her life with. Meagan and Erik have been together for over eight years...they were high school sweethearts. In our hearts, Erik is already family but we are just so happy that the couple will be tying the knot in the fall.

And now...time to get ready for the baby shower next weekend.
Need to start to worry again about the weather.
