A sea of pink and brown....

We are in the throes of a baby shower here at the "farm".  Well, it won't be here, we've rented a place in town.  There shall be 35-40 folks in attendance this weekend.
It's been a whirlwind of activity, planning, purchasing, cooking, more planning.....shopping till we drop!

All of this you see, is in preparation for the arrival next month of our sweet Gabriella!
We have no clue as to her weight, we don't know whom she shall look like, whether or not she has alot of hair, what color her eyes are....but we love her just the same!

This will be my daughters first and only (she says now) baby.  But she will be mine and Mr. Sweetmeadows' third grand baby.
We are TRULY blessed by God!

The shower theme?  You guessed it, pink and brown!  There will be lots and lots of pink and brown and even polka dots.  Grandma loves polka dots!  heehee

I promise pictures, lots of them and even some of my recent excursion too.  But they'll all have to wait until after the weekend is over

So for now, there is lots of decorating, wrapping, and more shopping to do!!!

I love baby showers and looking at the cute little baby things. Can't wait to see pictures. When my daughter was in the hospital having her first child, she looked at the nurse and said this is it, I am not having anymore babies. The nurse giggled and said, Yah, that is what they all say!!!!
Well she has two. He He

Hi Maureen...I totally forgot to tell you which pattern I would like. It looks like I was the first to comment on your "paying attention" post. I would love the EZ PZ Prairie Doll one. Thanks so much!

I know you are really getting more excited as this birth date draws near. Our grandson is due in June. I can hardly wait. We don't have a name yet--they are calling it "Peanut". I told our daughter-in-law that they had to call it a bigger name now..she is so big.They liked pink and brown and before we knew the sex, I had made a beautiful pink crochet set and a brown polka dot blanket with pink crochet edge. They said to just put it in the Grandmother's box for their next baby.
Your shower sounds wonderful and I look forward to hearing more about it.
Congratulations.
Love,
Marie
