Adell’s Baby Shower…..

On Saturday, I threw a shower for my sis-in-law, Adell…….

Adell is my husband, Jason’s, youngest sister (he has 5 sisters).  Adell and her husband Samuel moved here to Colorado Springs almost 2 years ago with their son Sean, who is now 3.  And since they’ve arrived, another little boy name Wyatt has joined their family too.  So that’s two boys, or 3 counting Samuel, and Adell is totally outnumbered in her own home!  But now she’s having her third child, a little girl to be named…….Camilla.

I threw a shower for Adell because it just simply wouldn’t do to have Camilla in her big brothers hand me downs!  This little gal needed some girl clothes of her very own so we invited all her new friends she’s made since they’ve arrived here in the Springs and we all gathered under one roof (mine) to celebrate the coming arrival of this new baby girl!

The whole theme of the shower was to ‘think pink,’ so I sent out E-vites to everyone and we went nuts with the color pink!  Those are some pics of a very young Adell there on my mantel.

As everyone arrived, we had them deposit their gift on the coffee table and fill out an envelope with their name and address so Adell would have it ready to go for her thank you notes…..

The menu consisted of a Monte Cristo Breakfast Casserole with Strawberry Sauce, Yogurt Granola Parfaits, Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries, Apple Tart Bars, Pancake Cupcakes with Maple Buttercream frosting and Crispy Bacon Garnish.

We all gathered in the kitchen to eat and chat before the festivities commenced……

We had fun guessing the size of Adell’s tummy with our toilet paper  ‘measuring tape’……

I supplied some diapers for all the gals to write down words or warning or encouragement on a stash of new diapers……

We all gathered in the living room to give Adell some sound ‘mommy’ advice before she opened the gifts for Camilla……

After we ate, drank and made merry, I gathered everyone by the front door to get some snapshots of Adell with her guests…….

And before they all left, they got to take home a bottle of pink nail polish as a thank you for coming and celebrating with us……

It was a great morning!  And we’re all anxious to meet this little girl coming soon to a family near us!
