Celebrate This Week: A Homecoming and a Wedding!

Join us each weekend for Celebrate This Week with Ruth Ayres. 
                                                             When we pause to celebrate, we find the joy.
Discover. Play. Build.
A week filled with moments to celebrate and remember. 

1. Teddy is here!
My grandson Theodore, (Teddy), arrived Wednesday afternoon 
weighing in at 9 lbs. 2 oz. and 22 inches long.
Here's the proud Dad!
So glad Grandma Barb is there to swaddle this 
sweet boy and help the new parents!
Teddy and Mom headed home on Sunday! 
Lance and I head their way in eleven days
(but who's counting?).  
Proud Daddy's caption:  "Somebody is
really happy that we are all home.  :)

2.  Kara's wedding
I spent the last two days being part of #bridetribe
for my niece Kara's wedding in Oklahoma.
We loved adding all her fun touches (thanks, Pinterest)
to the venue on Friday, prepping food on Saturday,
and enjoying a lovely ceremony with 
this beautiful bride and her handsome groom, Lawton.
The bride and her sweet Mama!
My brother, Karl, with the new couple,
Kara and Lawton Tyson! 
And they're on their way!
