a special visit and celebrating a sweet baby

Over the weekend we had 2 fun "events." First, on Friday we got a special visit from Scarlett's Lolli. Lolli has lots of little ones to care for at her house, so it is not often that we get just her to ourselves! She helped us 'welcome fall' as she brought Scarlett a pumpkin, a pumpkin puppy, The Pumkin Patch Parable and a darling new outfit! We enjoyed a stroll through the new children's garden at the Arboretum and lunch at Chick-Fil-A (where else!) together.

On Saturday I got to spend time with 2 of my best friends (Beth and KT) and my mentor from college, Mrs. McKinley. Beth is expecting a baby girl in November. This precious baby is long-awaited and we have been praying for her for a very long time! Her name is McKinley Elizabeth named after our amazing mentor Mrs. Martha McKinley. Her name was revealed at the shower in a moment of pure joy and surprise for Mrs. McKinley. I just love it! It was so fun to get to celebrate with Beth and her husband Josh. Here are the proud parents-to-be...

This is a sweet little sleeper my mama monogrammed for McKinley...

Here we are together with the banner used to reveal her name...

Best friends for life, through every trial and stage that comes our way!!! I love you 2 so much.
KT, Beth and me.

I cannot finish this post without saying a HUGE thanks to Mitch (aka super daddy!) who stayed with Scarlett all day while I traveled and celebrated with friends. They had a very fun daddy/daughter day :)
