Sarah's baby shower

On Sunday my adorable daughter-in-law, Lori, gave a baby shower for Sarah. 

Lori did an awesome job with invitations. The daddy-to-be is a meteorologist so these were a perfect match. 

 Lori made the cupcakes to match the theme.

The animal plates were adorable too.

My sister, Lona, always makes the cutest baby carriages

Lori was still making these chocolates when we arrived two hours before the shower was to begin. 

Here is Mommy-to-be at at 29 weeks. 

 It was great to have Rusty join us for the opening of the gifts. 

The baby's great-grandma made this quilt. Well she did the embroidery work. I machine quilted it. 

 Here is the quilt I made. It too is machine quilted. 

Rusty's mother lives out of state but sent the cutest gifts. It included a shirt for the baby boy just like his daddy wore many years ago. She enclosed a picture to show it.

Leah and Sarah are due just about a month apart. They are cousins by marriage. Leah is having a girl and Sarah a boy. 

Of course the baby-to-be's cousins had to get in on the picture too. 

These girls have been best buddies through high school, one since first grade. Sorry that Beth, Lindsey, and Julia couldn't complete this group.

It was a great party. I, among others with cameras, forgot to take pictures of all the food. There were chicken salad and pimento cheese sandwiches, a candy bar, chips and dip, veggie tray, and more. We were bummed that one great-Grandma wasn't feeling well and couldn't make it. One of Sarah's aunt was also ill. We hope they are on the road to recovery.

Baby is due December 31st!!!

She is having another shower on Saturday. I have more hand made items already boxed up!

Sarah looks adorable!! What a great shower - love the quilts, chocolates, buggy, and all of it. I need to file that "shirt" gift/pic idea away for possible future use.. (it could be a long while so I'd better write it down? -Tammy

The "mommy to be" is simply beaming. I love baby showers, they are such a wonderful celebration of motherhood,family, and best of all, a new life! I am sure the baby will never have a lack of comforting quilts.

Love the colors of the quilt you made. Your daughter is beautiful.

I love the shirt gift with the pic of daddy wearing the same one. Great idea!
