Baby Shower Photos

The baby shower was wonderful.  I don’t have all the photos yet but the following are the best so far.

Guess Who!   I love tie dye!


I hope the baby does too.


Sarah & Damon.  Damon drove up from Florida in 2 days.


I had a special cake made. Isn’t it beautiful.  A friend of my daughter’s made it. Her name is

Kallie.  She has a website :   Kallie’s Cakes.


Sarah & I spent 3 nights making the cookies!


The gang!!


The happy Mom & Dad!!


I had all the children who attended paint some baby T-shirts and onesies which Sarah will use to

to decorate the baby’s room.


Me and my girls!!

    OMG, Joan, you really out did yourself! The cake, the iced biscuits…everything is stunning! How cool that Damon went to all that effort to be there with you all for such a special occasion. Am cracking up at the wee tie dye baby outfit, just gorgeous! This is one occasion I bet no one ever forgets because you made it so unique and memorable.

    Oh Joan, everyone looks wonderful. I love the tie dye of yours and LOVE the onesie. Letting the kids there paint them was GENIUS!! Where did you get that idea? It’s great. It looks like it was so much fun. Damon looks really good and super healthy. Isn’t that good news in itself? I adore the pic of you and Sarah. You and “both” your girls. Thanks so much for posting this. Your family looks so wonderful. Was the Wasband there???

      I thought of the idea sometime in the middle of the night. When Sarah was young she painted a white shirt for herself. I still have it. That went through my mind. Oh Yes, the wasband was there. I’ll post some more pics when Sarah puts hers on shutterfly.

    That looks like the coolest baby shower ever – more of a celebration and party than the traditional girly ones. I love it. You all look so happy and proud – congrats again to Sarah and Obie. May they be blessed with the healthiest of all babies. Congrats to you, too, Joan for having such fine children.

    What fun!!! You both look great and the cake is gorgeous! I love the idea of the painted onesies to decorate the nursery–What a cute idea (My boys are so deprived!) LOL 😉

      Thanks RH!! I’m sure your boys aren’t too deprived. They’d probably rather have photos of tractors & trains on their walls anyway. I told the cake maker to just decorate the cake any way she wanted so it was a surprise to me when she showed up with it. I just loved it.

    Oh, it looks fabulous! What a nice building with the big bright windows! The tie-dye is awesome – you will match your granddaughter! Too funny! The cake is phenomenal! I love it, especially the bird and nest theme for a baby shower. Perfect! CuriousC and I had you in our thoughts when we got together for lunch the other day! You were missed! Hugs to you!
