My sister-in-law Meagan, sister Mary, and Mom gave us an absolutely gorgeous baby shower today! Thank you! We are so blessed to be surrounded by such loving and supportive family and friends.

While Meagan arranged flowers, decorated her beautiful backyard for the shower, and even took the time to freeze rosebuds in ice cubes, my mom and sister spent all day yesterday making all sorts of amazing homemade salads and Chicken Satay Spring Rolls
for the luncheon!

.: Gifts for Baby :.
It’s going to be so much fun to have another baby girl in the house. Everything she has been given is so darling. I can’t wait to see her wrapped in the new blankets and dressed in the cute outfits.
I have some incredibly talented friends who made us the sweetest gifts for our new baby girl, including a darling bonnet and necklace from Aleesa, Courtney and their Mom (Saong Jai
) as well as a new saint doll from my friend Ann-Marie over at Trendzilly
! Kristi (Paradise Jewelry
) and Luzmaria (The Artsy Sand Piper
) are waiting on us to finalize a name. We are working on it!
Even though they couldn’t all be here this weekend for the shower, four of my sisters, along with my mom and Meagan, all went in on getting us a stroller and car seat
for the baby!
.: Party Favors :.
Meagan made Peppermint & Orange Sugar Scrub for all the guests to take home.
It was such a fun afternoon. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate our new little blessing!
Prayer of Mothers
Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
