my baby sister's having a baby!

This past weekend we had a baby shower for my baby sister Bobo. Isn't she a beautiful, glowing prego girl?



It must be hard to be the youngest out of five siblings. No matter how old she gets, she will ALWAYS be the baby!



My two favorite things when it comes to baby showers.

CAKE.



AND LAUGHTER.



My least favorite?

That would be GAMES.

We only had a few games at Bobo's shower. In this one, you guess what celebrity parent goes with each kid. This was a toughie for me. The only one I guessed correctly was H!



{How well would YOU do on a game like this?}


I really enjoyed my weeklong stay with family.




No matter how long the visit, it is never long enough...

I realize that many families do not get along well enough to stay in the same house for an entire week. What a blessing it is to not only love, but LIKE my siblings and parents enough to SEEK OUT their company.



I am thankful...



{too bad all the in-law's weren't able to make it!}

I love the family pic! Beautiful family. I would not do well on the game either. Not a celebrity follower.
Congrats to your sis!

I wouldn't have done so great with that game either - now give me a word game anyday! LOL

You have a BEAUTIFUL family, Marsha. I'm so glad you were able to spend a week together, enjoying each other's company.
