Ain't No Party Like a Baby Shower Party

This post will be a little light on the words. Here are a few scenes from the recent baby shower, this time focusing on the attendees.

First up is Olivia & Isabelle, daughters of Tami. Amanda has been friends with Tami since they were in their early teens. She has had two beautiful children so far and, since they're so darn cute, I wanted to lead off with them. The last photo above is of Audrey, our niece, holding Miss Isabelle. Aud carried her around for at least two of the three hours of the shower. It was kind of adorable.

Amanda's mother, Elva, did a wonderful job coordinating all of the food and beverages for the event. She (along with the rest of the family and close friends) helped us put on quite a show and we're very grateful to them. The sash is a bit of a lie, obviously, as she's already a grandmother twice over.

Next up, a few random shots of the attendees. I won't name names (I'd probably fail at it, to be honest), but they're all wonderful people and we're happy that they were able to share in this celebration.

I'd like to single out Nick (no doubt texting someone) & Shawn (the curly headed one engaged in conversation) in the above photo. They always help out at any event they attend and this was no exception. They're pretty great people. Thanks, you two!

I'll end this post with the cake:

Super cute, right? You'll note that they reproduced the monkeys from the invitation. Sadly, about half of those who came to the shower never got to see it because we were all so involved with the festivities that we almost forgot about it entirely! Oops!!! It was quite tasty, though, and people can see it here, at least.

Enough for today. Tomorrow, a tour of some gifts!
