Somewhere Over the Rainbow...

...a shower for Charlie comes true. There is something about baby shower and me. I don't know what it is. I love the idea of lots of people gathering together to wish blessings upon new families. I love the whimsical baby items. Who doesn't? My heart also swells in the presence of my friend's new children. Children whom you love for they will be your children's friends. It is a blessing to have showers for the ones we love. I always tell Brent that if and when I have to go back to work, I would like to be a professional baby showerer, please.
This shower was in honor of Amy and Charlie. There was a huge huge storm about 90 minutes before the shower. It has not rained in Waco in 6 months, mind you. 90 minutes before the shower, the electricity goes off. 10 minutes to go time, it comes back on. Hallelujah! To be honest, it was kind of fun thinking we may have a candlelit shower...a new concept! We also had a dilemma with my chocolate fountain. Never could get the blasted thing to work. It spurted out chocolate chunks. You can see it in the picture below. Despite the set-backs, when the guests arrived, they saw truly the most beautiful double rainbow I have ever seen (the pic of course, does no justice). Yea, we planned it that way. Hostesses: Amanda, Kendra, guest of honor- Amy, and yours truly

Set up. Check out the chunky chocolate.

Oh, and may I say, this shower was a bloggers paradise! There were so many bloggers united who had never met and don't run in the same circles! So, people felt like they knew everyone, but had no clue!

Sweet Amy! You are a joy! You have the most contagious personality! You are so happy and joyful to be around. Noah and Charlie are so so so blessed. Hope you enjoyed your night, my friend.

Hey Nikki,

I've commented before on your blog, so "Hi!" again! I'm a friend of Charla's.

I'm in the midst of planning two baby showers, one of which is a double shower! I love the framed name on the sign in table! But I couldn't tell what it said (other than the name). Was it the 1 Sam Bible verse?

Please share all juicy tips. I'm with you on loving to plan showers!!

Thanks!
Kierstyn

Hey, I'm famous!!! How did I get so lucky to make the Nicksterland blog? It WAS an awesome shower....I loved everything you guys did to make it so special! Baby Charlie is a lucky little boy. He will have so much fun with Reese and the new little ones when they are all here!

Girl, do I need to give you a few tips with the chocolate fountain...Lord knows I've had a few! Anyway, make sure the chocolate is totally melted BEFORE you put it in the chocolate fountain. And...you can't skimp on adding the oil. You have to do that....or it won't flow right. I think the right ratio is 64 oz. of choco chips/chocolate and two cups of veggie oil, all melted together. -shannon

Oh I hate that I missed it! Glad you all had a very nice time. We were on vacation :( Looks like you know how to throw a party!

lauren said...

You are very talented! You really should start some kind of shower business!! I'm wondering what kind of face I'm making in that picture!

It was a great shower! You girls did a great job. I second the contagiousness of Amy and how lucky her family is to be blessed with such a sweet girl.
