Thanks Giving: for showering

blogIMG_4625Thanksgiving Day 2014 may have been relegated to our memory banks, but my 30 days of thanks giving continues until tomorrow – the last day in November.

I’m pretty worn out from all the celebration at our house but every minute was oh, so worth it.  We consumed a feast at our Thanksgiving table and all of us seated there made mention of the blessings for which we are grateful.

As soon as we cleaned up and cleared away the remnants of our gathering, oldest daughter and I switched into high gear and prepared for the baby shower we hosted for my expecting middle daughter.  In honor of the new baby girl that will join our family in February, we ‘painted’ the house pink!

Family and a few of daughter’s friends and mine all congregated at our house last evening for a “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” shower complete with hot chocolate bar and a wintry theme.  (More pictures later.) The weather even cooperated by providing snow-covered scenery around our house but thankfully, the roads were clear for travel.

Daughter and the new little life she carries were immensely showered by the outpouring of love and gifts.  And today, how can I be anything but grateful?

“If the only prayer you said in your whole life was, “thank you,” that would suffice.” ~Meister Eckhart

  1. What a wonderful shower idea! My daughter-in-law asked family and friends to postpone the baby shower tradition until after the baby (a Girl, also) is born (due date: February 3rd) so she’ll have a better idea of what she needs (after a most generous, I imagine, Christmas). I can’t wait! Congratulations Grandma!

    • It was a really fun and cute shower — my oldest daughter did most of the planning and it was adorable. I hope to put up some photos later. Oh, I’m right there with you, can’t wait for the baby and to be a Grandma. Congrats to you too, Grandma Margo! 😀
