Good evening; I hope you all are enjoying a wonderful week so far… We are getting some really hot days now,, whewwww,,,,, but as of right now we are getting some pretty good storms…. but it is very humid out, glad I am in side.

  I am being a bad blogger, not getting around to visit you all… It seems that with Summer everyone gets so busy with out door things. But I am going to make sure tomorrow night after my classes I will be stopping by to see what you have been up too. 

Well last weekend was my Baby Girls baby shower, it was so fun,,,, every one had a great time, and I made way too much Pasta Salad,,,, I ate that all week, so I am not ready to eat that any time soon.lol  I did take a few photos,,,,, ok a lot of photos,, but I won’t bore you with them all.. so I will just  show off a few.. Ok here we go…

So this is the Mommy of the day,,,, I love her glow,, as of right now she is 81/2 months.. she is doing well,,, still working,, Ok I have to do some bragging on my baby girl,,,,, Heather has worked at her factory job for about 15 yrs,,, she is on her feet 8 to 10 hrs a day, wearing steal toed shoes and long pants with a hard hat and gloves…. now the work she is doing now is not that hard,,, just light work,,, which I am so happy about,,, so with that said,, Heather is a real trooper went to work with morning sickness,, now puffy feet from standing,,, she has not complained one bit… She is starting her leave after July 4th, which is two wks before her due date,, now I want her to take it now, but she said she wants to work as long as she can… The Dr.. said she is doing great and not to worry but you know how us Mommy’s are,,, we worry.. Ok I am done now,,just had to brag some…… thank you.. now more photos..

Baby showers ARE so much fun....what a wonderful time for you both. She needs to enjoy it NOW! LOL.

Great pictures captured a beautiful day!

Thanks so much for visiting - enjoying your pics from the beautiful shower - your lovely daughter certainly is a gorgeous mom-to-be. I send wishes for her ongoing good health and an easy delivery. That little guy is going to have a very special room (it's so neat) to come home to.............and will be surrounded by loads of love from his family.

Stay cool - hard these days though isn't it? NC has already had Summer I think - whew! Spring was such a hot one.

Happy week - Mary

Hello Alaura,
What a sweet mom-to-be your Heather is! I remember those days and how much fun it was looking forward to the birth of my baby. I felt like I was on top of the world; no other feeling like it, is there? I am sure you are looking forward to your new grandbaby too. The shower looked like it was a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog. It was lovely hearing from you. Have a delightful day.

Looks like the shower was a great success!! How fun that you are going to be a grandmother again!! I haven't yet experienced grandmotherhood and would love to!

Congratulations to you & Heather!!! A new baby is so much fun! It's great that she is still working & saving that time off for once the bundle of joy arrives. Loved all the shower photos. Enjoy the moments that make the memories of a liftime. Charlene
