A Wonderful Baby Shower!!!

I wanted to share some wonderful news with you all.  I'll be a aunt in late little sister Barb will be having a baby girl named Rosalie.  These photos were taken at Barb's baby shower on January 12th in upstate NY.  The above photo is of my sister and was taken by our good friend Jenna Beers (Jenna was nice enough to let me use a bunch of her photos since my camera didn't do a fantastic job...Thanks you Jenna!!!!).
As you can tell by the look on Grandma's face she's very excited to be having another grandchild. :0)If our mother had her way we all would have had ten children each...LOL!!!
The baby shower cake was made by our mother.  I made the elephant cake topper for it.  I thought it would be a nice keepsake for Barb. The cake as always was fabulous and it was for that sweet little girl to be.
Our Aunt and Uncle were sweet enough to host the baby shower for us.  It was nice of them to let us make a mess out of their house.  The banner above is the one I can't see but it has clouds on it behind the colorful fabric balloons.  
This was the gift table....I think this baby is loved very much and she hasn't even been born yet. :0)
This was the kitchen table with the two baby diaper cakes I made on them.  I really had a great time making these.  The little pink elephant with the red heart on it's butt...I made as well.  I loved it so much I made myself a patch work one.
Here's the happy mommy to be..... opening all her baby gifts. Doesn't she look radiant. :0)
The favors that all the folks got to take home....they were filled with yummy chocolate.
Silas had a great time at the party too.  He got to hang out with his best buddy Wesley.  I just love this photo...I'm so glad Jenna sent it to me. 
Here's Silas helping Aunt Judy with clean up.  He's such a good little helper. :0)
These were the bibs I made Rosalie.  Barb found these as a free tutorial on the web and she fell in love with them.  I thought they turned out cute.

Last is a photo that Jenna took of us.  It's been so long since our family had a group photo taken.  Here we all are starting in the back my older sister Jo Ann, Me, Silas, Barb, our Dad-Roger, and Mom-Beverly.  I know my poor Dad...three girls...LOL...this is why we all know how to change the battery in our cars.  Just ask my husband...the last time I needed a new car battery I changed it while he ate a granola bar (true story).
Well I should go my dear friends. I hope this post finds you all happy and healthy.  I still have four openings in my "Pay It Forward" if anyone else would like to join.  If not I will pick random people to send off gifts to.
