WHOOOOO Had A Baby Shower

Good Morning!
You DO remember
the rabbit that got loose in
the family, right?
If not..visit here~
Apparently, said rabbit
left this family
MUCH MORE
than Easter eggs.
We gotta 
BABY BOY
coming to bless us soon.

But, first things first,
Baby needs some things.
And how do you get
THINGS 
for a baby?
A Baby Shower!

Here are 
Baby Daddy & Mama-to-be
showing up at the shower.
Do you think that is 
gonna be 
ONE CUTE BABY?
Let's hope it doesn't
have rabbit ears..
just sayin'

Forget about that
cwazy rabbit cuz the 
THEME is NOT
about rabbits.

Here is the theme
for the nursery.
Isn't this a HOOT?
Mama stayed at
the shower while
Daddy-to-be took off
with all the other Daddy-men.

Guess who came to the 
party?
The three cousins all dressed
in their Derby Hats
 from the previous day.
CharlesInCharge gave
MamaToBe a preview
of what life will be like
in the near future
if Cousin Ria holds him.
There was a onesie decorating contest~
Where THIS ONE...
Was accused by THIS ONE
of copying her design...
Who was accused by 
THIS ONE...
of copying HER design.
We won't tell you that it was
Auntie Carol that was the 
final accuser cuz we don't want
to embarrass her by letting 
you know she "outed" a 9 year old.

Meanwhile,
SweetCheeks
just did her own thing.

Mama-to-be got so many 
wonderful gifts-
Some were funny~
Some were sweet~
I picked this up for her...
It was something she wasn't expecting.
And remember this?
Well, these are the bands on
the valances for the nursery...
and they are not quite done yet.
I need to get them fitted before
I can get a final picture of them.
I will show you that soon.

The shower was a wonderful event-
Thrown by my daughter-in-love's
sisters and family and my daughters.
My youngest daughter
made this cake...
Can you see the window she also
made to hang in the nursery?
Not a very good picture, I know~
It's painted on an old window sash.
All in all,
It was a wonderful day.

And this...well this is 
ONE SPECIAL GIFT.
My friend, Jettie's Aunt
crocheted this beautiful,
beautiful baby blanket and
hat to match.
She is 86 and 
still so talented.
A little closer...
Is this the sweetest thing ever?
Instead of cards we were
asked to bring a book
for the baby.
What book do you think I picked?
Give up?
Do you?
Do you give up?
Do you think it is a mushy,
kissy face book?
No.
This book is one that 
suits my son well.
He will love reading it
to his baby boy.
Sometimes the stars all align
and you just find the
perfect gift.....ya know?

  20. Hi Diana, you were right on target with your gift! I haven't seen any of those with owls! The blanket and hat, what a precious gift!

    ReplyDelete
  21. You have no one to blame when you get called a stinky face later on. LOL
    Love that book and I can't wait to see the next stinky face in your family. I am not too sure about owls for a baby, they kind of creep me out. Rebecca collects them and she laughs at me about it.
    The hats look so pretty and I'll bet the girls love them.
    So, when is this boy coming???
    Seems like that girl has been pregnant forever.
    The blanket that Jettie sent your is gorgeous! Her aunt is amazing. I have never seen that pattern before. Something I might try one of these days, if someone on this end would start a baby or two.
    Lovely day here. 70s! Windows are open and a slight breeze, not sure what I want to so today. Inside or out? Maybe both.
    Have a great day!

  22. So sweet! I love that nursery design!
    And I love the crocheted hat. Ocasionally someone will donate hats to the hspital for the NILMDTS sessions and they make such a difference. A beautiful hat can cover a skin tear or some bruising caused by birth. I'd love to be able to crochet like that.

  23. Congratulations on the new baby to come. I love the owls and all the fun decorations and presents. My favorite thing is shopping for baby clothes.

  24. Oh what a fun day, you seem to go from one special event to the next! I love the crochet blanket, I know she got tons of store bought gifts, but ones made with love are so special!

  25. Hi there, Oh the joy of it all! A new grandson-when is he due again? Our girl finds out this Friday if she is having another girl(will be #5)or a little boy. I've got fabric for both and will start designing a quilt right away. Loved seeing the girls with the Derby hats on too-wasn't it a wonderful race; love seeing all the ladies decked out.
    Have a joy filled day Diana.
    Love, Noreen

  31. I love you stinky face was one of my stinky face's favorites. Even though he is 12, he refuses to give it to his baby cousin.

    Sounds like a lovely shower! All good things to the new baby!

  34. Oh..everything is just so darned cute! I was tempted to send your post off to my little expectant Granddaughter..but her Mom..my daughter is knee deep in preparing so I am just going to butt OUT!
    Our shower is on June 3rd at 2!
    Our little boy is due July 4th. I probably already told you..aw well..I'm old and forgetful!
    I think we are both dancin' on one foot and another! I'm a very old veteran of baby showers etc..but I just PLAIN get so excited about the whole thing.
    Ahhh..so there are copy cats at showers too, not just on blogs! LOL :)

  48. Well my first message went to message land -

    Oh Diana,

    What a perfect day! Looks like the happy new mama, all the little cousins, Aunties, and friends, and Nana of course, had a marvelous time.

    Little 'Stinky Face' will be well loved by all, and Charles in Charge will have someone he can push around in the wagon or on the trike!

    Happy times!! God bless you all, Nana!
