Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

Baby Shower

Yellow cake with chocolate frosting: "And Baby Makes Three"

Thoughtful presents in a pink wagon for D!

Games even the guys could enjoy

And a crazy oinking piggy slingshot toy!

A baby Bear to make the day bright

And this special family home from a very long flight.

My only request was mimosas and I got a full bar!

Peach, mango, or orange, our glasses never strayed very far.

Friends tall and small, both girls and the boys

came to celebrate D and share in our joy.

These sweet little friends taste tested the cake

Miles took his job seriously and proclaimed it just great!

A clothesline of onesies was a very big hit

And this book made us cry...just a little bit.

There was laughter

And tears


and dear friends

It was a wonderful day. THANK YOU.

The End.

    Your shower looked great.

    I am totally intending to email you about packing - I keep trying to think about what do I wish I had known before I had gone! Will do my best to do it tomorrow after (YET ANOTHER) social worker visit :)
