Virtual Baby Shower for Heather

Good morning, and welcome to my part of the Virtual Baby Shower for Heather at http//hopscotchandhydrangeas.blogspot.

Well, leave it to me to goof up! The date should read: Friday, July 25

Our head hostess of this baby shower is Rhonda at http://scooterbluswhimsy.blogspot/.

Now, I'm sure you received your invitation with all the information on it. If you didn't, come on in...the more the merrier.

Please do not think that our dear Heather needs to go on a diet. No, no! You're just seeing little Cali and she's about ready to make her appearance to the world. But she's got to hold on just a bit until the baby shower is over!

Let me show you to the gift table where you can put all your wonderful presents. Heather will open them all after while.

Would you like a cup of Pink Baby Girl Punch! Yum, it's so refreshing, isn't it?

Heather wanted to make sure we all got to view little Cali's room. Let's go take the tour! What a precious little room!

Okay, why don't you look around a minute to see what's awaiting us. This is another area with pretties and goodies!

Here is a very lovely Boo-Kay. Mixed in with the lovely roses are little baby socks rolled up like roses. Heather can take this apart later and use the little booties on Cali's little pinkies!

You must try some of these wonderful butter cookies...yum...
Let's share some funny 'birthing stories' with Heather...(giggle, giggle, giggle)

Get set, now we're going to play a few games. Please take a party favor as I pass them out. Aren't these little strollers adorable? You know, I made these. I'm so creative! (wink! ;)

These little diaper cakes are so cute and add so much charm to our shower, don't you think so? Look, we have two of them.

Since it's almost lunchtime, I thought we would eat and then afterwards Heather can open her gifts. Make sure you take the little box with your name on it. There's a little surprise for everyone!

Look at all the scrumptious food I fixed for our lunch today! Just pass your plate to me and I will fill it up with all kinds of salads!

Lots of little finger yummies too~

Heather! Come here dear, and cut your cake! There's plenty of this adorable pregnant belly cake for everyone! This cake makes me wonder if Heather is going to breast feed little Cali! ( my bad ;)

Is everyone full? I sure am. Heather, come sit here and let me pin this lovely little corsage on you. Isn't it so sweet?

Now the fun begins...oh look how cute!

Oh, every little girl needs a little red wagon!

Here's another gift...

So many sweet pink things...

Oh, look! The sweetest little lambie pie!

Oh, I want a grandbaby!!

Oh, how sweet...look at the little bathtub!

Every little girl needs her own Bunny Foo Foo! Even got a Bunny Foo Foo on the blankie!

Heather, I just had to embroider you a red work Mommy pillow~ did I mention how creative I was! :)

What wonderful gifts you have received, Heather. Your blogging friends would like to give you one last gift to use after Cali has arrived. Now this is what you have to do...hubby will have to stay home and tend to the children and you are to have a marvelous spa treatment! We all pitched in to get you this and knew it would be so relaxing after all those weeks of having swollen legs and tired little feet.You will have a wonderul relaxing're gonna love it!

You'll receive a facial too!
And, one last thing...we wanted you to have a very special sexy nightgown to finish off your day of being pampered.Heather, there is only one more gift to open and that is the little gift of love you've been carrying for nine months. We want you to know our prayers will be with you for a safe delivery, healthy baby and that you will be on your feet soon.

Here's a litte Note Song for you~

Havin' my baby
What a lovely way of sayin' how much you love me
Havin' my baby
What a lovely way of sayin' what you're thinkin' of me
I can see it, face is glowin'
I can see in your eyes, I'm happy you know it

I'm a woman in love and I love what it's doin' to me
Havin' my baby
I'm a woman in love and I love what's goin' through me
Havin' my baby
~ Paul Anka
