The Baby Shower

100_5265 by judkajudy
Well, I am home from my trip to Wisconsin. This is a photo of me with my daughter-in-law Sara (the honoree at the shower) and her Mom Laura.

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.

I have always done the same thing with exclamation points, Judy and my son always tells me to remove some of them. Ha! I tell him also that it's just because I'm so excited about what I'm typing. :) But your family is correct - they shouldn't be overused and there are some blogs I follow where people use them even more than I do - like after every single sentence - I've never noticed you doing it that much.

Love that photo of you! <----- yes I'm using an exclamation point because I really DO love that photo of you! Hugs! :)

Such a special time, Judy, so glad you shared it with us. If they think you use lots of exclamation points, you should send them over to visit my blog :)))) I've often thought the same thing, though: anyone reading my blog sometimes would think I'm high on helium or something! Welcome home!

Welcome home, Judy! You were greatly missed! So happy to see the new photo of you and glad you had such a good time with your family and will soon have a new little one to love!

I do hope you'll soon return to using exclamation points - they are such a happy bit of punctuation! Hugs to you!

What a lovely photo, Judy! This month will surely fly by and before you know it, Evelyn Rose will be here. I had to smile when I read about exclamation points. Sometimes I have to go back and reread certain sentences and see if they do indeed warrant an exclamation point. I've been known to edit them down to a period! But I couldn't resist just now.....
