It Is A Girl Baby Shower

 

Baby Shower mosaic 2

Yesterday was our daughter in law’s baby shower and it went off very well.  Karen’s sister Leah was the organizer with help from brother Scott’s wife Paula.  I helped put up a few decorations.   We had some games and some food and then there were gifts to unwrap.  One of the youngest attendees was upset that the presents were not for her and she protested with huge sobs.  Thankfully a pretty balloon helped sooth her feelings and we went on.  There were some new mommies with young ones and they were so happy just to be passed around and look at what was going on around them.

Karen is a big Winnie the Pooh fan so the cake and many of the gifts were of that theme.  Karen and a good friend of hers is also expecting and we had a baby bump picture.  Leah made a wonderful baby carriage out of diapers with a diaper doll inside.  It was so cute.  Our son arrived at the end to thank everyone and take all the gifts out to van.  I don’t think he could see out the back on the way home as it was piled to the ceiling.

I am joining Mosaic Monday with Mary from DearLittleRedHouse.   Have a great week.

What fun! A baby shower is fun any time, but a shower for a baby girl is just a little bit ....well, pinker, I guess!

How wonderful to be part of this great day for your DIL. It seems to be shower season as I'm hosting a bridal shower on Saturday for my niece.

What fun at the baby shower. Our daughter had one too, unfortunately she lives in Sooke so I couldn't go. But I heard all about the fun, the food, and the gifts.
