BABY SHOWER FINALLY OCCURES



 Our precious mother-to-be, Britney
 Honoree with Co-hostess Jeanne
Britney blesses Jeanne and I with the 2 lovely mum plants on the table.
 Like most showers we had to play those SILLY games.  Here we had to draw a picture of a baby, but we had to put the paper on our forehead to draw!!  I actually won this game!!!

Another game was guessing the number of M&M's in the baby bottle you see on the table in the picture above.  Wantha one this game and only missed the count by 6 M&M's!!!!

 Another game was listing the items that were hanging on the clothes line on the front porch.  You would have thought I'd win this one, since I hung them up!!! but I didn't -- Kathy won.
 Lots of packages and packed full of LOTS of lovely, adorable items that had all of us oohing and awing, and us with older children making comments about all the wonderful baby things that are available today that we didn't have.  
 Kathy, made the list of the gifts, and this was her special gift FOR THE MOTHER of a lovely nursing top.
How thoughtful and we really oohed and awed over this one!  
The 8 of us that were in attendance, and there were gifts by some who didn't make it.

I love baby showers and I like you notice the wonderful things that they have now that we never had.
My dil loved those nursing tops when she had little T.
Sounds like lots of fun games.

I love baby shower games! Susan, it made me chuckle when I read you were the one who hung out the clothes but didn't win!! May God bless that momma and her new little one!

Oh my Miss Susan, it looks like the shower was a grand success!!!

I remember the first time my young sister went to a baby shower with my Mom and I. She didn't want to go 'cause she would rather take her shower home alone and not in front of a bunch of gals. Heeehehehe!!!

It looked perfect sweetie!

God bless ya and have yourself a magnificent day!!! :o)
