A Wonderful Shower Day!

I don't even know where to start,,,except to say it was a perfect day! My friends Tina, Diana, Christy, Greg, & Kim really out did themselves!!! The house was beautifully decorated with gorgeous framed pictures of Hermela and two picture collages! We also had balloons, streamers, and huge color copies of the little girl holding the U.S.A. and Ethiopian flags that was on my invitation!
The food was soooo yummy! Tina also brought beautiful cake and the cutest cupcakes!! Needless to say, there were no leftovers!!!
The festivities started at 1:00 and I still had a house full of people at 8PM, with my last friends leaving around 10PM!!!!
It really was a wonderful day being surrounded by my little girls pictures and such a great group of supportive and caring friends that can NOT wait to meet her in person! A heartfelt thank-you to all of my family and friends that made it such a memorable day!
Here are a few pics....

It sure sounds like you and Hermie, (pictures) had a great Shower, Adoption Celebration!!! Who would ever think that you would have a clothes line in your house? How times change! It is so cute, love it, and you will have to save it for when I get there.

I think the clothes line should go in the nursery. It'd look great hanging up in there! And that way everyone had a hand in decorating the nursery! Besides, she's just going to drool and spit up on them anyways!

Lisa it looks like you had a great time. Also looks like you got lots of great things.

Can you send me the link for the invites w/the baby holding the ET and American flag, I have seen them once before, but I can not locate the site now.

Thank you
