on Saturday!  It was great fun having family and friends all together sharing the joy as we await the arrival of the new grandbaby, niece, great-grandbaby . . . well you get the picture.

My mother loved telling the story . . . her mother (my grandmother) had two daughters – one born in October; my mother (mom) had two daughters – one born in October; I had two daughters – one born in October; now my oldest daughter is expecting her own daughter – born in October!   We will have four generations all the oldest daughter!

Mallory did a fabulous job with all the little details for the shower from the invites, down to a little book she made up with invitees, addresses and the gifts they brought.   She got crafty and made this wreath for the baby’s door.


Then she made Boo Boo Bunnies as favors for everyone to take home.  I ordered some pink soap from Goat Milk Stuff, which we cut into quarters and stuffed in the opening in the back of the Bunnies (where the ice would normally go).


We had the cake made by a bakery here in Jeff, Adrienne and Co. Bakery Café.

The top layer was Lemon/Strawberry and the bottom was Orange/Raspberry.  Excellent!

That’s all the pictures I have from the shower for you  . . . until I get approval from Kate for the others . . . don’t want to go embarrassing her or anything!

Oh what the hell . . . here’s one of both the girls that I cropped!

  1. Thank you for sharing your family stories and the picture of your two beauties. May you enjoy every moment together as you make memories, which I know you’ll commemorate in many ways. I imagine an October baby’s room with more than one super, wall-hanging original created by our stamping queen. Congratulations!

  2. Your girls are lovely and the party sounds like a real blast. I have 5 grand daughters….a true delight.

  3. It looks as if Grandma Sherry had herself a wonderful time at the shower. Congratulations again to the entire family, especially to the October birthday girls!

  4. Sounds like it was a a lovely day and that is so neat about the generations of girls born in October!

    the way you share your family’s stories usually makes me really laugh out loud…love it!
    i’m so glad you shared the pic of your girls. they are adorable!

  9. I love those Boo-Boo Bunnies! What a darling idea! Looks like you had fun. I was at a baby shower for my niece on Saturday, so we were both in Babyland. I made her a G45 mini album from Little Darlings. Big hit. I love that stuff!

  10. Looks like a great shower! It’s fun to see what others come up with. Your girls are very pretty. You will love being a grandma, it’s the BEST! In my family we have 5 generations of having a first born daughter when the mother was 22. Unfortunately my daughter ended it due to the fact she could not get pregnant. The good news is she made me a grandma three times through adoption!

  11. Beautiful pics, Sherry! I absolutely love those colors!

  12. Congrats on the upcoming grandchild! I am also expecting my second girl this October. Seems like just yesterday we were in Dallas at Bev’s and I was hoping to have a baby in the next year! Enjoy your grandchild!
