No Rain Showers for this Baby Shower!


What a wonderful time everyone had at Jill's Baby Shower!! She got a boatload of wonderful gifts and the variety of food and cute tables set up were adorable as they themed the selections according to different children's storybooks.

I'm partial to Peter Rabbit since that's what I had stenciled in Peter's baby room almost 19 years ago now...below you see the carrot cake cupcakes based on the "Carrot Seed" book, and a couple other themed goodies.
Here are the mousie cookies up close and personal!! They tasted yummy too!!!Also lots of delicious finger sandwiches with chicken salad, and an unusually good combination of cream cheese and shredded carrots on raisin bread! And here are the hostesses with the mostests!! Meghan and her mom Annelies!
Jill and her mom got started...one of the first presents was a box filled with Jill's own baby clothes that her mom saved over the years...so very cute! Lots of handmade items too!Here Jill is opening up my handmade gifts for the upcoming baby Clare!

I was so happy that she liked everything, including the crocheted ripple blanket below...I had leftover yarn, so went ahead and knitted the hat and booties too! So fun!
And here was a surprise for me as well...my tante Nellie, the great grandma in waiting, had saved over the years, her grandson Jonathan's baby blanket that I had crocheted over 31 years ago! Now he's the pappa to be!! I was so surprised at the great shape the blanket was in!!And here are the parents to be, Jonathan and Jill!!!! And Baby bump!! So cute!
And here is great Oma!! And me!! What a great time we all had!!
