Drew's BIG Party

Nana threw a huge Welcoming Party (Sip and See) last Sunday and it was so overwhelming to see ALL of our friends and family there to share in our JOY!!! Here are some great pictures we got of all the action!!! Thanks to my dad for taking MOST if not all of the shots!!! Nana and Drew... Nana loves Drew and Drew loves his Nana... even though in this picture it looks like Drew is not so happy he really does enjoy his Nana!! He was getting hot... so we had a costume change.

Mary Beth, Aunt Anne, and Aunt Annalee

Grandma and Grandpa were there. As you can see my niece, Emma, is enjoying the party too!!!

Grandma Stewart LOVES holding Drew. Drew was practicing his ooohhhhing and agghhhhing!!!

This is Brandon and Drew. Brandon is the son of one of my dearest friends and I also taught Brandon when he was in 3rd grade now he is a 6th grader. These are 2 cute boys!!!!

Little BOYS do ROCK!!!

My friends from work!!! Thanks girls ... it meant a lot to have you there!!!!

Ken's buddies (the husbands of my friends from work). It is so nice to have such GREAT friends that Ken AND I can both enjoy. Our friends mean the world to us and have helped us more than words could ever express.

My mom and her friends from work!!!

This is Sarah and Sarah (yep both are named Sarah). They are great friends from our college years. How sweet of them to drive all the way in from Austin to see Drew!!! We love you Sarah and Sarah!!

This is Uncle Jeff ~ this is his first time to see Drew!!!

This handsome guy is Leighton. He is Ken's cousin and dare I say one of his best friends. They are more like brothers!!! When we knew we wanted Drew to have the initials DLF the first name that came to mind was Leighton and of course it is perfect!!!

This is Jenny, Leighton's wife, Leighton, Drew, me, and Ken. Leighton and Jenny drove in all the way from Corpus to welcome Drew into the family!!! We LOVE YOU GUYS!!! BUT wait where is Raeleigh ~ their little girl????? OHHHH YEAH!!!! she is having a blast playing in the dogs' water dish (it's CLEAN water).

Aunt Sally and Aunt Annalee are so sweet. They have always made me feel like a part of the family. Ken and I are truly blessed to have such wonderful families!!! WE LOVE YOU ALL!!!!

PARTY'S OVER!!!! This was Ken and Drew after everyone had left. We let them sleep for a couple of hours... ok maybe just an hour and then we went home. It was a wonderful party. We couldn't have asked for a better day. AND THANK YOU so much to Ken's mom (Nana) and Aunt Annalee for hosting such a fantastic Welcoming Party!!!

Grandpa Freeman would be so proud for the little guy to carry on his initials.
