Last Sunday, Anna June's Aunt Connie and Aunt Beth and I hosted a baby shower for her Aunt Liz. Liz is expecting on December 26th! I can't wait to meet our new (first) nephew!
Rusty and Beth did most of the food, including a fruit tray carved into a baby carriage, chicken salad sandwiches on croissants, and a veggie tray. We ordered the cake from Publix, and they did a great job mirroring the invitation and the theme, which was little baby blue footprints.
Connie made the punch and everything else.
I pretty much showed up and greeted people, and took some pictures.
Anna June helped show guests where to put the gifts (Aunt Connie's wooden crib, handmade by her father, Jay), and helped by handing Liz the gifts. She also encouraged everyone to sign the mat of the framed picture of the baby's ultrasound. She did a great job at her mini-hostess duties.
It was a beautiful day, and a fun event with friends and family. He's not even here yet and I'm already in love, as are his Nana and Granny.
