Baby Shower

Please meet Alicia, momma to be of Audrina Faith Carter, my first grandchild. Audrina is due August 8th but the doctors say she can come at any time now. The baby shower was last Sunday and here are some pictures I'd like to share with you all.....
This girl did not wear ONE piece of maternity clothing this whole pregnancy. Makes me sick. lol
My niece Isabella standing over the indoor pond, do you see the fish? You can't see but it goes underneath both sides of the walkway.

These are the cutest hand towels

Alicia's girlfriends mom made this cake. It was so delicious, look at the little onesie.

Just look at these "onesie" cookie favors, aren't they just adorable?
I made these pacifier candies from life savors and jelly bellies!

Portrait of Alicia
Picture of Nick (daddy to be) 6 months I believe
It was a VERY hot day, so most of us stayed indoors but the view from the deck was great.

Can you see the deck pool down below? Is that cool or what!
The colors of this display were so vibrant I loved it. She put the dips in the pepper shells!

Here are the Great Grandmas
Jackie left a comment on this photo that I seemed to be the only one who knew this picture was being taken. hahaha
Alicia's mom Carolyn on left and her cousin

This lovely bassinet belonged to Alicia when she was a baby and was restored and adorned with gifts from Alicia's grandmother and Aunt Audrey.
Gifts, gifts and more gifts.... The array of colors are wonderful aren't they?
Lovely blanket and pillow hand made by her grandma in Montana.
These are the prize gifts because they are "Carter's" bags, (our last name)lol

Jackie thought the baby needed a bear so she went to Build A Bear and made one! Isn't it just the cutest!

She was saying she need more lap because the gifts kept falling off. lol
This one of my favorites. It says, "Daddy's Bling Bling".
Another hand made quilt, just lovely colors.
Have you ever seen a baby spa and shower? What will they think of next?

There were four of these at the start of the party........Some one was having a good time and it wasn't me.....I had to drive. Bummer.

Thank you all for stopping by and visiting this post. My next post will be of Audrina herself so please stay tuned....and have a wonderful rest of the weekend.

What a beautiful home to have the party at. Alicia looks so pretty and so does her mom. They look like sisters. That is a cute picture of you and Janeen. The food looks so colorful and delicious. But the cake...oh my, beautiful. I would of hated to cut into it.
Alicia got a lot of gifts for the baby. I know you must all be getting excited.
Cute name they picked out.
