|The house was beautifully decorated for the shower!|
I've known Sheree since she was an adorable little blonde two-year-old running around the church house of the Pickering Ward in Whittier, where I live. She grew up into a beautiful young woman, seemingly overnight - and married a really great guy.
They are currently in the process of living happily ever after.
A couple of Saturdays ago I was invited to a baby shower for Sheree. She's having a girl, so everything was appropriately decorated in PINK.
|The patio was beautifully decorated and filled with food - and gifts for the new baby|
We sat under two huge tarp tents and were very comfy, even when we heard occasional rainy drippy drops thumping against the tent roofs.
It was lovely to hear some rain - and it didn't dampen our spirits at all.

|At first we were shy about getting something to eat... that didn't last|

I think they make the cutest couple.
|Sheree and Nathan|
Sheree always looks glamorous. I dare anyone to be nearly 9 months pregnant and look this good! (The baby is due at the end of August)
Nathan finally pulled up a chair to watch Sheree open gifts. That's her brother sitting on the ground next to him. (Her brother is a skilled photographer - you should probably be seeing his photos of this event rather than mine!)
|Sheree's sister (in green on the left) records the gifts while her Mom, (in orange on the far right) watches|
But I tried.
|This little girl is going to have some adorable things to wear!|

The sky had been threatening - and sprinkling on us - all through the morning. By the time the shower began to break up, around 3 pm, it finally started raining in earnest.

I can't wait to meet this little girl when she comes into the world. It won't be long now!
