PINK ELEPHANTS AND BABY SHOWERS

We can always tell when Spring is in the air! New babies everywhere! I think all these great minds think alike!  I know my friend Barb just posted similar photos a few weeks ago from her soon-to-be grand girl Grace! Last Sunday we traveled home to Pueblo for my niece Kate's baby shower. I guess you figured it out, she too, is having a girl! My sis was under the weather and still needs your prayers but she hosted this shower with her two daughters. Karla (white blouse) and Holly (black top). Kate is the cutie mom-to-be with the pretty printed top and my sis is standing proud with her girls!
My Sweets helped me put the diaper cake together. We opted to tie each tier together with thin ribbon then add the wide ribbon to the finished cake! We used two different sizes for the diapers and the picture does not show the cute blue and pink elephant teething ring I found to top off the cake! He was a bit top heavy with his teething rings on either side so they took him off! (Sigh)
Photo six is Kate with her cousins Rebekah and Hannah!
The cute table centerpieces were hand made by my niece Karla her sweet hubby Aaron. He designed the first one and she said "Perfect, now make me 8 more!. The little wheels under the elephant cart are actually paper towel rolls that were spray painted brown and cut into wheels to hold up the cart!  I wish I could show you the cute picks they put in the cupcakes. The day was terrific catching up with friends and relatives. The food was great and Kate and Jason received so many beautiful things for their new baby due in May. Say a prayer that Kate is finished with her finals (Nursing School) before the little one arrives.
Now stop by Beverly's and thank her for hosting this weekly fun! Enjoy all the pinkies and come visit more often!

Oh Anne Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I love the little pink elephant. Look at that diaper cake and those little booties. Now that is just precious.

Love seeing your family. It is always lovely to put faces with names. Congratulations to the family on the upcoming bundle of joy. I will saying prayers for Kate to finish her finals before that precious bundle arrives. He knows our needs and he will provide.

Have a glorious weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
