A Very Nice Baby Shower Indeed

Last weekend two of my friends, Teal and Carol, hosted a baby shower for me at Teal's house. The group gathered were members of my woman's group and some people from a Sunday School class we used to attend regularly.

The invites.

It was a lovely affair - Teal and Carol mailed off some adorable invitations and put out an amazing spread of food and decorations for us all to enjoy. It was nice to visit with everyone and of course we were the wonderful recipients of some very useful gifts for Baby S. In addition, my hostesses collected "momma advice" from all the attendees and even some who could not be there to send me on my way in the right direction. Here are some highlights.

Look at this adorable floral arrangement!
Johnetta, who owns The Wicker Basket, a Dallas flower shop, made it.

Carol was not able to attend the actual event because she recently had back surgery. We of course very much missed having her at the event. But, we took these photos and stories over to her house afterward so she could experience it in a small way.

It was such a nice affair with some really fun ladies. Thanks to all of them for coming, and for my fabulous hostesses for putting it all together. It was great! We are lucky enough to have two more showers coming up in the next few weeks. And, I am so grateful to be getting these wonderful gifts of needed baby things. I'll keep you posted here of course!

See you soon.
