April Shower

A baby shower, that is!  This morning my dear friend Gayle hosted a baby shower for me at her home. It was beautiful!  There were lovely decorations,

I loved these little tissue balls that were everywhere!

Thoughtful gifts,

And best of all, fabulous people that I love!

I returned home after FOUR HOURS at Gayle's house (she and I and her husband, Rick, chatted a long time after all the guests had gone) with a van loaded down with balloons, presents, leftover food, and more pink things than I have ever seen in one place at one time!  :-)  Most of all, my heart is so full of gratitude at the kindness of the women in my life that I love so much.  Not a single woman at the shower today was related to me, but I feel so blessed to have so many "sisters" here in Colorado!
I am especially grateful to my sweet Gayle who does so much for me!  She told me today that she is the oldest woman in our ward; I told her I am usually the youngest woman in Relief Society on Sunday!   But despite our age difference, she is one of my very dearest friends.  I am thankful for the kindness, friendship and love that she continually shows toward me.  What a great day!

It really was lovely. I felt the same way, having a wonderful time with our "sisters."

Yay! It was fun celebrating with you (I'm so excited for you to dress your girl in all the very-cute outfits!). And love that "sisterhood" of Relief Society too -- since I grew up with just two brothers I learned early on how much I appreciate you sister-friends.

Much kudos to Gayle for putting on a wonderful party!

So fun Meggin! Hooray for having girls this summer!

So many cute things to dress little Annie in! Too bad she's likely to be napping around all the great wardrobe changes. You'll have to just take LOTS of pictures so she knows how styling she started out!
The shower really was great. Great ladies and delicious food! Two of my favorite things.
