The Baby Shower

My daughters decided to throw a baby shower for their sister-in-law, our oldest son's wife, who is expecting a baby girl in mid-March.  We found a cute little cafe in Scranton that made great coffee which comes from a local coffee roasting place, and several kinds of tea.  But the best part of the cute factor for this place was that they make mini cupcakes!

Aren't they adorable?  There were red velvet, vanilla, chocolate peanut butter, chocolate chip, cookies and cream, triple cinnamon and toasted coconut.  I ordered 4 dozen, thinking there would be plenty to take home to the guys.  Nope.  I bought out the rest of their stock as we were leaving.

Of course, these pictures didn't load up in order.  So here they are, scrambled:

Ashleigh opening the bassinet I bought her.

 Presents and party favors.  We invited Shannon's mother in law, who just loves a celebration, and who has no daughters; her present included a lovely tube of lotion for Ashleigh.
 We decorated onesies as a fun activity.  Here the girls are fighting to open the fabric markers, paint and stencils.  (Should have brought scissors.  Oh, well.)

 And these were the finished products.  Everyone was quite pleased with their efforts.
 Ashleigh knew in advance about the shower, but I think she was still surprised and delighted that we held a party for her.  She has a month to go, but I know she's ready for the little one to just get here already.

So there was our happy weekend event!  Next time, I will post more pictures of Bebop, including him meeting Tank and Adventure Beagle!  Happy Monday, everyone!

Hi Marjie. Sounds like a lovely day was had by all. Let's hope the next month flys by until your grandbaby is here. Does your son and daughter in law live far from you? Take care all. No worries and love, Carol Stella and Rory
