Our daughter had a wedding shower given for her this past week-end in St.Louis, which should explain why there has been no posts forth-coming on this blog site for awhile. And we want to apologize to our many friends in St.Louis for not getting in touch with them while we were there. It was too short of a time to do any visiting. The shower was this past Saturday, and all went well. Each guest was assigned a time of the day for which their gift would be relevant. Melissa consequently received many creative gifts, the majority of which either kept her in the kitchen baking, or out picnicking and spending special moments with Spencer. It made for a lot of laughter and fun. Spencer's Aunt Sue gave the shower and it was wonderful meeting her, his mother Cheryl and other members of his family. The happy bride-to-be is pictured below.
