It was a perfect day for a baby shower Saturday. My oldest great niece is having her first baby next month, and they had the shower yesterday. There were a few scattered showers, but they held off while the party was going on. I went with my oldest reg niece and my sister. I do not get to see my sister as much as I used to sense she is on dialyses 3 days a week, so it was really nice to get together. It was a coed party and our little brother was there. He lost a lot of weight; and now it looks good on him.lol He lookls a little like our grandpa now. Guess we are all getting older lol. The expecting mother looked beautiful in her blue dress. Her best friend is going to have a baby too, so I took a pic of them side by side. I love to take pictures and do it when ever I can. Everyone knows at family events I will have at least one camera with me, and if they will pose for at least one pic I will not bug them trying to get alot of them if they do not want me to. Many of them pretend to complain about me and my camera, but I noticed they all could not wait to see the dvd I made a few years back with years worth of old pics in them going back as far as I was able to squire them from my oldest sister. There were many good things to eat, and they had games and prizes. I won a jar of M&M's and, my sister won the big basket full of all kinds of snacks. The funny part of that is she is on a strict diet, and can not have most of the things in it, but her grandchildren can.lol When they dropped me off I told her not to eat them all at one time lol.
My youngest great nephews were having a lot of fun with the helium balloons. Some of them had confetti inside. I watched the older one eat about 6 cookies. That is odd for him, because when he is here his brother always looks for my candy jar, but the older one rarely wants any. I went over to my sister-in-law ( their grandma) and asked her if she had the kids tonight or was she giving them back to their mom later (she had to work). When she said they were going back to their mom I said Good because they are really loading up on cookies lol. Let their mom deal with the sugar high lol.
There was only one tiny bump in it all. My third great niece and her dad arrived late, and being a typical teenager she was a bit moody. She was annoying me a bit , so instead of telling her about herself, I just took my camera and walked outside, The landscape around the site of the party is quite beautiful. It kinda reminds one of what the days of Camalot may have appeared.
I walked around a bit and took a few pics and then went back inside, and enjoyed myself. I just let my niece set there sulking with her nose buried deep into her phone. There were many other relatives to talk to. The shock of the day was when a niece that rarely likes her pics taken asked me if I got enough pics around the time the party was braking up. I said I never got enough and asked her why was she volunteering to pose. She said yea she would pose with her oldest daughter, so i snapped a couple shots before she could change her mind. I wish our other sister had been able to make it, but their health is not well these days. :(
All in all it was a nice day and a beautiful event. I just hope all those rompers and oneness they got are in different size, because she got about 50 pair lol. I painted her a pic, and got a photo album. If you all want to see the pic I painted, it will be on my other account when i get it uploaded.
