Aimee won a prize for knowing the most names of baby animals. Apparently her prize struck her funny.
DId you know the name of a baby Platypus is a Puggle? I didn't.
A bag of chocolate bars would make me laugh too. (With delight!) Aimee's mom told me later that a few days before the shower Aimee had been craving chocolate. This is probably why she thought it was so funny.
There were a lot of darling baby gifts packed into these bags. I can't wait to see Tori wearing them. The doctor said she will be born this month and I get to be at the delivery. ((((((((SMILE))))))))
Of course I'll take my camera!
Here's the expectant mama, just imagining her little Tori in this sweet little country girl outfit. Here are Tori's first Cowgirl boots. They are so tiny and soft as a lambs ear.
Here is some of the food we served
This counter has ham, turkey, red and green grapes, hard Italian salami, a giant cream cheese ball prepared by my granddaughter Aimee Breanne.Almost hidden is a dish of little Smokey sausages that I cooked from a very simple but delicious recipe. Also there are two kinds of crackers
This counter has roasted little smokie sausages, six kinds of cheese, dill pickles and five kinds of crackers. My cute little doll in the very back doesn't show up very well. I decorated with several of my baby dolls.
This is the drink and dessert table. I asked two of my great granddaughters, ages 6 and 8, to arrange the forks and napkins how ever they thought would look best. I sure wish I had a picture of the surprised and delighted look on there sweet faces when I gave them each a gift for helping me. I did this after all the games were played and the prizes given. They didn't win a prize so were feeling a little low. Oh how I love being a grandma lady!!!
Here are some of the guests sweating over a game.
My two youngest daughters holding two of their grandchildren. On the left is Kathy with little Joey who is wearing a cowboy outfit. His daddy called him Cowboy Joe. He's teething and his fingers are his best friend right now. Cyndi is holding Hailee, and hailee is holding her ever present baby doll who does not have a name yet.
If you can judge the success of a baby shower by the love shared by all present and our eagerness to lavish this unconditional love on the precious little child soon to come, the hysterical laughter, many lovely gifts, and the delighted smiles of two little girls trying very hard to be 'like a lady'
I'd say our shower was a smashing success. I was so dang tired I slept for ten hours last night.
