Baby Shower

Here's a quick overview of today's baby shower for my DIL, Olivia.  I wanted to share some photos, but am pretty exhausted after spending 4 weeks working up to this day. I'll share more photos as the days go by, but suffice it to say that the weather co-operated and my DIL that is usually the one doing for others, was overwhelmed by the outpouring of love from her friends, our family and my friends.
You deserve it!! 

And Baby Makes Three

We were so lucky that it was a beautiful day.

 I didn't get a photo of all the handmade gifts, but there were others,
including knitted hats and even booties.  I overheard one of  Olivia's friends saying that she wished her Mom had quilters as friends!  That made me giggle to myself.
And Bailey chooses June to cuddle with.

Exhaustion prevails.  Tomorrow I will share more.
Good night.


  1. What a wonderful shower and fun hand made gifts too.
    I saw your slide show of your bike trip, love that you went down the canals by boat and rode the areas, what fun.


  2. Looks like everyone had a wonderful time! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Looks like a very, very special day. Wish I could have been there. But Granddaughter's birthday party trumps most anything!


Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear from you.
