Baby Shower and a Carter Story

Hello, Dear Ones.
The ladies from my daughter's church gave her a baby shower this past Sunday afternoon and I wanted to share the joy with you.

Here's my lovely daughter enjoying all of the sweetness.

 These little items were just perfect for the shower for little 'Sweet Pea'.

 One of the church ladies baked a very special cake too.

 Isn't this just adorable?
The bottom of the cake is laced with little peas and the top...
a little 'Sweet Pea' popping out of the cake.
This is so creative and just the cutest thing! 
They gave to top with Sweet Pea to my daughter to take home.
 The hostess and my daughter.
What a blessing and we're so excited as little Sweet Pea will be born next month.
We will be there.


Now I wanted to share a little Carter story.

 Carter's mommy and daddy signed her up to play soccer every Saturday for a month or two.
Well, play, is a generous word here as the three year olds will really be learning a few moves and how to play in a group and listen to instructions from someone other than their parents.
I think it's a great thing.
 Carter was so excited and had all of her soccer gear on. 
Everyone knows sticking out your tongue helps when you're running with the soccer ball! :)
At the end of their session the coach was asking each child, "When you get home, what move would you show your friend about soccer?"
When it was Carter's turn, she put down her ball, pulled up her shirt, turned around and shook her tooshie! :)
That's my girl! 

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Shake Your Booty
Aah everybody, get on the floor, let's dance!
Don't fight your feelings, give yourself a chance!
Shake shake shake, shake shake shake
Shake your booty! Shake your booty!
Oh, shake shake shake, shake shake shake

Shake shake, shake shake, shake your booty!
Shake shake, shake shake, shake your booty!
