Friends, family and a baby shower for two

I wanted to record some of the guests that attended the shower.  There was 40 in all and it was so much fun getting to visit with some friends that we used to spend lots of time with when the kids were in
 high-school.  Hard to believe now they are starting their families.

All four great Grand-mothers were there.  
And one extra  that helped raise Michael and his brother, when they lived in a town without any family.

Lots of friends from high school, college, junior league friends and school teaching friends.  

We were told this idea was stolen from Pinterest.  Pretty cute for twins.

I think the girls received about 20 precious outfits or more.  

I completed the second set of bedding.  My Mom knits and gave her two blankets, two sweaters and matching bonnets.  

Now you must remember this for your next baby shower gift or little girl birthday gift.  The hostesses gave Hadley and Layton each their own set of silver cake serving knives.  They were engraved with their names and will have their birth date added.  They are to use them at all their birthday parties as they grow and then at their wedding when they engrave their husband's name and wedding date onto the cake serving pieces.  A wonderful tradition.  

Ann Marie gave each hostess a colorful ceramic pitcher with drink tags and she made each the cute fabric flower that was attached.  

Now we just need to complete the nursery and I think they will be ready for Layton and Hadley to arrive.  


  1. What a wonderful shower for the sweet Mom. I love the pictures of the grandmoms all gathered around the Mom-to-be. I hope you share pictures of the babies when they are born. Those sets your Mom made are wonderful!!! xo Diana
