I thought the shower for Jill went right well. She certainly got the goodies! ;^)
Signs of the times: there was exactly ONE “wrapped with a bow”
gift. One. All others were nestled in gift bags.
Well, it does cut down on the clutter and mess of traditional wrapping,
but I rather miss seeing a pile of boxes of all different shapes and
wrap and bows.
But first, Gran holding her beloved Bryson Bunny.
My sister, Jeanne, my youngest daughter Jessica (mother of Brianna),
Jill the Honoree, and my sister Elaine, who co-hosted the shower with
me, and in whose new home it was held.
One of Jill’s gifts was the book on baby signing with Marebear’s photo on the cover. Good choice!
While opening the presents the attendees played Baby Bingo, wherein
they first filled out blank bingo cards with what they thought Jill
would receive, then hoped they’d get a straight line bingo:
She was keeping track of both her own and Jill’s, not double-dipping.
Jessica was one of the winners . . . there was a three-way tie (what a mercy I brought extra prizes!).
Mom hard at work on the memory game (several baby things laid out on a
table, studied for a few minutes, then one sees how many one remembers
Here are the contenders in the “Which baby food IS that?” game.
The girl with the long dark hair, facing the camera, was the winner.
After the shower Beth, Alex, and Hannah visited with us and had supper. It was a lovely day!
