A Baby Shower.

Sep 20, 2010 | Full Time Family, On Motherhood | 15 comments

My feet are up, 
Dishes are put away,
and I am happy to say,
Victoria (my SIL) looked GORGEOUS that day.
My oh my.
  So not fair, the rest of us look like Sasquash three weeks before our due date and she doesn’t even have “fat head.”
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be “Auntie Angela.”
It’s even fun to write the words.
And for my children to be cousins.  I know how much my cousins mean to me.  Especially memories of the ones we grew up so close to.
Onesies, bellies and babies – Oh my!
We played “What’s in Momma’s Purse” and my cousin destroyed everyone by gaining big points for having things like a tea bag, Pepper spray and a Bible in her purse!  And watching those girls swarm around the Macaron Tower made the crazy idea of trying to assemble one totally worth it.  Can you say vultures?
And I’ll say it again – Doesn’t she look radiant?
She’ll be holding and smelling and savoring before she knows it. 
 She is going to be wonderful and all the women in these photos and more that aren’t shown are waiting in the wings to offer their support, encouragement and prayers as she steps into this role she was made for.
I love you my dear sister.
Can’t wait to meet your baby!!!

Three more weeks!

    I am SO jealous of all the ladies present at this event!!! Of COURSE Victoria looked fabulous. I LOVE the macaron tower. I may just have to order these macarons from you. I discovered them through you and I have wondered about them ever since. I have also learned just how key they are to all things French. This post is so heartwarming. Loved it.

    What a beautiful baby shower you organized for your SIL. It will be a sweet memory for her every time she bites into a macaron or dresses her baby in one of the cute little outfits she would have received. You have been blessed (with so much creativity) to be a blessing to others Ang! You have been showered with His radiance!

  11. Bringing Pretty Back

    She looks beautiful!
    What a beautiful shower! I LOVE being called Auntie!
    Have a pretty day!

  12. Anne - Fiona and Twig

    You will be a marvelous aunt!
    What a beautiful SIL you have, that baby is going to be gorgeous. 🙂

  13. Victoria

    Angela.. I am in process of writing you a long thank you letter for this wonderful shower, so I won’t say too much here. The pictures here say it all – it was FUN, there were so many sweet conversations between ladies, the house looked gorgeous and the hostess was perfect! I can’t say enough good things about Ang.. I am very blessed to have her in my life for so many reasons! Thank you.

    p.s. I may not have “fat head” (what is that by the way?) but I have the fattest feet! Ha ha.

  14. SK

    Beautiful! I’ve been waiting with bated breath to find out why you sent onesies with your invites! 🙂

  15. Renata

    I have a question – how on earth did you make that macaroon tower? It looks amazing!!!
    Your SIL does look so beautiful & radiant.
