It's a Baby Shower

This past weekend I drove up to my mom's house in North Carolina so we could shower our newest family member with lots of wonderful gifts.

Miss Mallori Jane is due to make her arrival in November so we had to help Mom & Dad get ready.

We all know how much equipment comes with those itty bitty babies - tons.

Here are some pictures of our party and when this family gets together - there better always be a camera handy cause you never know what's going to happen.
(I left out most of the crazy pictures, though.)

We ate (of course).

This beautiful (and delicious) cake was made by the sweet lady in the orange. To us she's Betty Jean but prefers to be called Betty - I just can't seem to do it. Here she is with my mom and Aunt Rita.

Here is the lovely mother-to-be, my cousin, Tori.

She opened gifts.

We played games.

Out of all the grown women at that shower, it took an 8 year old girl to correctly guess what size string would fit around her tummy. That's right, G won!

At the end of the party, little Miss Ava even made an appearance.
I don't get to see her often so this was an extra treat.
(Love that red hair of hers.)

Thanks for coming to our little shower.
I'll keep you posted on Miss Mallori's arrival.

Love all the decorations! I had the same kind of "diaper" favors at one of my baby showers. Looks like everyone had a good time. Bet you can't wait to meet the baby! Have a good weekend.
