Baby Shower!

I'm finally getting around to posting some photos from our June 3 baby shower thrown by Stephanie, Dara, and Michael. It was mostly, though not exclusively, craft night ladies. Instead of playing games, we made a calendar so I will have a place to jot down all of the things Phoebe does before I officially enter them into the baby book. Very practical, very cute, VERY fun way to start out a shower. Oh - and the food. There was a TON of food... coffee cake, waffles with whipped cream and strawberries, sweet rolls, fruit... it was great. Okay... here are the pictures you've been waiting for... =) (addendum: okay... so Blogger is being stupid and not showing all of the pictures. If there's a little box where a photo should be, you should be able to click on it and you'll be able to see the big version of the photo. Not sure why this isn't working today. Erg.)

Making the Calendar...

Some of the finished pages.

The attendees: Sherri, Julie, Wenda, Andrea and Ian, Monique, Michael and Kalin, Stephanie, and Dara (taking the photos)

The cutest Patagonia snowsuit! Thanks, Monique! Great for those 9 months of winter...

A little pink outfit sent from Texas.

Heirloom quilt begun by Phoebe's great-great-great grandmother, quilted by her great-great and great grandmother. The final (and extremely special) gift for my grandmother's first great-granddaughter. The woman who started this quilt was born in Russia in 1868. The quilt has been in storage for 64 years and has never been used. It is beautiful.
