Aunt Jill's Shower

It's been a very busy around here lately with work, weddings, showers, auditions and travel that we took a mini break from blogging and now it is time to play catch up! A couple of weeks ago, Toby's youngest sister had a wedding shower that we ventured to.
We got up extra early that morning to get ready and Sadie had some breakfast on the her car!
I confiscated the whole box of cereal to trade her for a bowl of it :) She is getting so tall now that if she stands on her tip toes and stretches to reach things she is successful!
Toby was outside mowing and Sadie loves to go anywhere he is but on this day she had to opt for watching from afar.
There's the stretch I was talking about!
Our house sits on two acres of land surrounded by a ton of hickory trees. Beautiful as it is there is a downside to those trees and it is called hickory nuts! They can dent your vehicle if they land on them. Sadie thought that they were balls and she would pick them up carry them around then throw and chase them.
Also in Big news - Sadie has a mini Elmo that she adores. There are not many places that she goes that he does not accompany her :) Toby is not the biggest fan of him because every time he moves he says something and it is a constant with a toddler carrying him. It's a good thing he has an off button ;)
This particular morning was a rough one on poor Elmo!
We headed out later that morning to the shower. Here is the Bride and Groom opening gifts!
Sadie spotted her Aunt Reah and baby cousin Brady pretty quickly.
Aunt Reah picked Sadie up onto her lap to let her visit :)
She still seems curious about him but she quickly warmed up patting him ;)
Then it was off to the tables where she could reach some fruit!
