The Baby Shower
Laura was the perfect hostess and treated us all to a wonderful lunch as well as providing a beautifully decorated room in which to celebrate. Sara is married to my youngest son Scott and their baby, a girl, is due in late June.
Baby Evelyn Rose was showered with many lovely gifts from friends and family. There will be no shortage of people to love her.
You stampers and crafters would have been as amazed as I was at how talented Sara's Mom is. As gifts to the baby, she made a beautiful stained glass hanging featuring a pink elephant with a silvery background; she also crocheted one of the most beautiful baby afghans I have ever seen. She also hand crafted the table decorations and gift bags for all of us to take home. The room was a delightful place to be with silvery and pink bouquets of helium balloons as table decorations and focal points around the room. As you might gather, Baby Evelyn's nursery is decorated with a pink and grey theme.
I don't know if you have noticed that this posting so far does not include one exclamation point. While staying with my son and his wife and joined by another son and my daughter, the group visited my blog.
It was pointed out to me (they call it "feedback") that I greatly overuse exclamation points. I tried to explain that I am merely showing passion for what I have to say, as well as some excitement.
I'm not sure I like this new look of just periods at the end of my sentences ... maybe they will tire of checking my blog and I can go back to my favorite punctuation mark.
Aside from the "feedback" I had a wonderful time and have memories to keep me going until we gather again after the baby is born.
Thanks for your visit. I had a wonderful trip but there is no place like home.
