I'm so glad Kari (and Bobby) had such a good shower. Everything looks so nice & I love seeing their baby pictures and all of the extra special added touches.
It was a beautiful day yesterday here in Oklahoma.
I'm keeping Kari & baby Ethan in my prayers.
Thanks for sharing!
Love,
Valerie

Carol, that's the coolest baby shower I have ever seen, I'm going to tell my daughters to pass that idea along to their friends. I would have loved to be there to hear the stories of the past and future.

Hugs,

Hi, Carol. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me that sweet note! I hope you will come back often. It's always fun to find new friends in blogland. I've enjoyed reading through you posts. It is such and exciting time to anticipate the birth of a child in any family but the first grandchild - well, that's just super special!! Your pictures are great and I love the clothes and crib you have from your son's childhood to share with his grandson. That is very special and it is wonderful that the parents want to use these things. I hope you will enjoy every minute of aniticpation and that "grandparenthood" will be everything you've every dreamed it would be. I'll be checking back on you from time to time. Again, thanks for coming by and, ya'll come back soon! ♥ Sharon ♥
