Monday morning, we had a special baby shower. It was Anna Marie and Abby’s idea. With a young missionary couple visiting this past weekend who are expecting their first little one, Anna Marie and Abby thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to have a baby shower. What a great idea! With short notice, they put the shower together, and there were eighteen of us in attendance.
The couple’s baby is due in June. What a delight it was to celebrate this new life and to share in their joy.
Abigail helped to decorate with decorations we had saved from Melanie and Anna Marie’s baby showers last year.
Cream-cheese filled strawberries; they were awesome, Anna Marie.

Smiles all around!
Mom gave a devotional.
Our friends, the C. family, put together a powerful assortment of Scripture verses for the new mommy to read and meditate on when she’s up with her baby in the night.
Abby and Bethie sang Jesus Loves the Little Children and each presented the new mama with a rose.
We played two games. The first was this: it’s Sunday morning, you let the baby sleep in, and now you have to hurry to get the baby ready for church. We had two teams. The other game was UNO (Abby’s idea ;)).
The whole group.
