The Depot was filled with the sound of happy voices and excited people who had come to help Carly and Josh Deweese prepare for the arrival of their latest family member, baby Leddy Ryan Deweese, who will arrive in September.

Family and friends showered Carly with many lovely and useful gifts for Leddy. The Depot was decorated for the festive occasion with a balloon arch, floral arrangements, white cloth-covered tables with floral centerpieces, and trays of delectable edibles. A beautifully decorated cake along with cookies with the baby's name on them was presented on silver trays. It was charming!
