"My Baby" is Having a BABY

We had a busy weekend, as usual .
Our youngest daughter's ( Sarah) friends asked if they could host a baby shower for her at my house. Of course, I said yes and it took place Sat. This was a small event, being her second pregnancy.

Miss Ivy Louise is due to make her entrance into this world on Halloween. I tell everyone Sarah is having a little goblin. She says as long as she's not a little witch it will be ok. (smile)

These are two of the hostesses preparing some of the game & prizes. ( A very good friend of hers in the white dress and her sister-in-law in the pink.)

People and presents start to arrive.

A special chair for her to open gifts with the balloons behind it.

Sarah giving us a side view of that baby bump and view of the table. She is all baby. She never gains excess weight. I don't know how she does it--I've seen her eat. (smile) Sarah opening the gift that Aunt Ceekay sent her from AZ.

It was cute the way they had each gift giver sit next to Sarah while she opened their gift. (Ceekay could not be on the chair, as she was in AZ.) Then they had to give her some words of wisdom concerning child rearing.

The girls giving the shower made up little cards( that were business card size) with a different Bible verse on each one, Sarah & Ivy's name, and the due date on them. They also made cute little magnets so you could put the card on the frig to remember to pray for Sarah and Ivy. I thought it was a cute idea.

At the end several ladies prayed for a safe delivery and healthy baby. It was a sweet time together.

I hope you all had a pleasant weekend.
