I went to a baby shower for my daughter today. It was held at the community center in the small village where she lives. It was such a fun afternoon. I got to meet so many of her friends that I knew by name only. She received so many beautiful gifts and many of them were homemade.....knitted and crocheted blankets, several quilts made by some of the older ladies, and feminist books from some of the younger women. The food was delicious and I must confess that I ate some of everything. The youngest guest was 3 months and the oldest was 94. The afternoon ended with the arrival of my daughter's best friend who flew in from Alberta to surprise her. They have been best friends since kindergarten and there were a few tears shed when they hugged! Only four weeks until our granddaughter's due date and already she is so loved.
