A drop-in baby shower was held July 19 for first-time parents Katey (Hopkins) and Daniel Rossie of Maryville at the home of Aundrea Hopkins in Talbott.
They will have a son and have chosen Grant as his given name and Thomas as his middle name.
Present at the shower were maternal great-grandmother Ann (Hipsher) Curl of Rutledge; maternal grandmother Aundrea (Hipsher) Hopkins; Katey (Hopkins) Rossie, Daniel Rossie, paternal grandmother Lee Ann (Rossie) Rogers; and paternal great-grandmother Carolyn Rogers, both of Morristown.
Not present were paternal grandfather Brian Rossie of Florida; maternal grandfather Stephen Hopkins; and maternal great-grandfather Coy Hopkins, both of Talbott.
The shower was given by Katey’s aunts, including Kathy (Hopkins) Utter of White Pine, Libby (Hopkins) Beaver, Rosemary (Hopkins) Watkins and Jan Hipsher, all of Talbott.
As a special gift for her nephew, Allison (Hopkins) Bellissimo of Talbott, presented the couple with a block Great Smoky Mountains National Park quilt she handmade to specifically match the nursery in both theme and colors.
