Baby Shower Time!

Last Saturday, my good friends Jamie and Alecia threw me a baby shower and invited all the girls from the ward. Alecia held it at her lovely home and brunch was the order of the day. We had Belgian waffles with all kids of toppings options, egg and cheese casseroles, yummy juice punch, pastries, chocolate milk, and many other delights. It was fun to be the center of attention, but I must admit, I tend to feel a sheepish guilt at being singled out and lavished gifts on. I don't know why. For birthdays, I feel just fine, but these showers-- they are above and beyond. And I am grateful. Thanks, Jamie and Alecia, and all you others who attended!

  1. It looks like it was so much fun. What a blessing girl friends are. And what a spread of food and gifts. You are a blessed woman. Lucky you.
