In anticipation of Sweet Baby's arrival....a party!

There were bouquets of flowers! This particular bouquet was made from baby socks by my mom....great-grandma-to-be! Isn't it the sweetest thing?!!
There were family and friends, big and small. They ventured miles and hours by plane and by car from Idaho and Washington. Bless their hearts!!

There was intense game competition! This particular game was my favorite. Guess the Poop! Different kinds of chocolate bars were melted in baby diapers and the attendees had to figure out which candy bars were which. Our son, Justin, was the winner of two movie tickets for 7 out of 9 correct answers. I figured one of the guys would surely win!

Jeremy, with his quick wit and sense of silliness, made the gift opening fun!!

At the end of the day, there were lots of sweet little things for a sweet little monkey that will soon make her debut. It's not long now!! We can hardly stand the wait!
Warmest bear hugs, Aleta

Aleta-it looks like your shower was a big success! The decorations were great and your Mother's sock bouquet is sure to be a hit for anyone who sees it. Wish I had the idea for our niece's baby shower!

Hi Aleta - It looks like you all had fun! What a beautiful bouquet. I'm sure you're getting so anxious to hold your new little one in your arms. There's nothing quite like it! ~Adrienne~

You have some great pictures! Can you email them to me so I can put some in my scrapbook? I love the picture of Jeremy with the hat on his head. And I like the last picture with Justin smiling in the background. :) It was such a wonderful day and I can't thank you enough!
