Hopefully 2015 is off to a great start for you. It certainly is for me.
Yesterday was the BIG BABY SHOWER for BHB. Her baby (little LWB – our grandson) is due 2 weeks from tomorrow. Time does fly!
|I missed making a photo of the hotel signs for our parties during BHB's wedding so I was determined to get a shot of this sign in the hotel lobby.|
|Is BHB really almost 9 months pregnant?|
|The view from the room where we held the shower was fantastic.|
|The food was great. We also had custom made fruit smoothies. Everything was fantastic.|
|We used toys as table decorations. The pearls are a reminder of BHB's wedding. They came from our New Year's celebration in Kiawah Island just a few days ago.|
|The cake was blue, OF COURSE!|
My oldest daughter AJ drove in from Jacksonville the night before to enjoy the fun and give me an extra hand at the shower. We stayed up way too late the night before playing chicken foot dominoes, my moms favorite holiday "around the table" game.
|AJ and I had fun getting ready for the big shower. It was great she could drive down.|
|ML and JB were very sweet to help with the decorations. They were very creative. However, I think they would have been much happier out on the beach with the other college kids on winter break.|
|Our guests enjoying BHB opening her gifts.|
|Even the paper on the night light was cute.|
|The younger "ladies" at the shower helped out with the gifts.|
Just as the party was getting started, D sent me a text saying he had landed in Kuwait City and was almost home back to Manama, Bahrain. I put him on a plane the day before and he was heading back to work after a great Christmas and New Year’s holiday.
|We took this quick shot of ourselves just before we played the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island.|
|The party was over and the guests all gone. But the big arrival of the baby is still to come.|
|BHB's car was stuffed with goodies.|
|It looked like all the gifts might not fit in the car, but with help from the hotel staff and friends, we were able to get it in.|
