It has been quite a month. For me at least. I crocheted a baby afghan and a baby elephant. I co-arranged/hosted a baby shower for my first born who is having HER first born.
The cat and Dear Husband wondered if I was ever going to simmer down.
Kimberly made the flower arrangements (and a box to transport them in... NO SPILLS!).
The honoree's college roommate and I made arrangements with Country Tavern in Nashua, NH to have brunch with a room to ourselves. (Historical: built in 1741 and reputed to be haunted.) Karen and John were terrific about providing extra plates, cake servers, and advice about table arrangement.
In spite of all the sweets on the brunch table, everyone had cake and it received many compliments. At Karen's suggestion, we divided what was "left over" into generous servings in take home containers. Some spouses, children or guests were going to get seconds later!My daughter was glowing as was her wife. The guest list was friends and family, so their were college chums, sisters in law, and book club members. Love, gifts and good humor were abundant.
There were activities!
- A list of wishes for the baby
- Matching numbers of days for gestation for 10 mammals (The highest scores were 40%).
- Baby Bingo with prizes
D-day is in January. There will be lots more pictures then.
