Capturing December...Joyous

I'm still four for four. I'm even for four for four with my December photos, though I am posting December 4 technically 47 minutes late. The theme for December 4 is "Joyous' and I think the most joyous events are those days we welcome babies. This gives me the opportunity to share a few pictures from sweet Amanda's baby shower on Saturday.

 Our guest of honor. I've known her for over fifteen years, through sweet sixteen, college, marriage and now awaiting motherhood.  

The shower had a  "sea" theme -- to match the nursery motif. The cake graced the candy bar. 

He's going to be a well-dressed baby. We were asked to wrap everything in clear gift wrap and it was great. We got to see all of the gifts. Is there anything cuter than baby clothes? 

What a happy day of joyous celebration!

I like the cake - very cute! And what a fun idea to have all the gifts in clear wrapping. I hope all goes well for her with the baby.

Babies are JOYOUS for sure. My 18th grandchild just came home from the hospital yesterday and I'm going to visit her today! I am a joy filled grand'ma' here. Congrats to your friend on her baby!

What a great idea to wrap everything in clear wrap! It keeps the gifts intact but everybody can share.

The mom-to-be looks pretty and happy. And it sounds like the little guy will be all decked out. Someone did a fantastic job on the cake and all!
