Ashley's Baby Shower


The baby shower was wonderful.  I was sorting through a few photos that I took.  There are lots more that my friend Joyce took for me.  Once I get those I will surely share the details of the shower.


I think my daughter Ashley's face says it all.  We had everyone from four month old babies to my mom who just turned 86 years young.


 I took all of these while sitting like a guest just taking it all in....There were so many more people that were at the shower that I didn't get to photo myself.  I am sure that I'll have better photos from Joyce to share in another post.






It's so funny, my daughter carried Lion King around as a toddler all through her little girl years.  He saw Hong Kong, Toronto and still is in her room.  Now my little grandson's room will be done in Lion King theme.



Ashley received so many lovely things from diapers to gorgeous hand-made baby things. Like this gorgeous hand-made bunting.


One of my favorites was this cutie Halloween outfit for the baby's first Halloween, from Joyce.



I spent a few days following the shower in Vermont with my mom.  I am just getting back into the swing of things.  I was going through these photos and I just had to write a post.



Today is Mosaic Monday and Mary from Little Red House is hosting, so stop by and find oodles of mosaic inspiration.

What a wonderful, lovely day it must have been. The decorations are so charming. I too think your song selection hit it out of the ball park. I look forward to seeing and reading more about this very special event.

Karen, the shower was so special. The thought that you put into every detail was amazing. Every place that you looked in your house was designed so beautifully. And the food was spectacular to look at and just as delicious to eat. Thank you for inviting me and my best of course to Ashley waiting for her baby to arrive.
