Baby Shower in Roanoke

Finally, I have some pictures of the wonderful baby shower my sister put on for me in Roanoke, VA a couple weekends ago. Thankfully I had some company on the long trip between TN and VA, Mandy & James met up with me in Knoxville and shared the ride. On Sunday, we had lunch at the Hotel Roanoke, some baby cake, and opened a pile of presents for the new "Bunny" Meadows. The tables were decorated with pink candles and brown bears - so sweet! The young girls made "hospital" name bracelets out of beads for all the guests, and Meghan had everyone busy filling out a page for a keepsake book. Everything was beautiful and it was wonderful to get to see so many people from Virginia again - I hadn't seen some of them in over a year! I even had some family from Ohio make the trip - my Aunt Jenny, her daughters Kelly, Molly, and Megan, and my Gramma Jean. It's just not a party without those wild women along!
My sister was also kind enough to give me a momma-to-be a tiara to wear. Tiaras are very big in my family! There was so much loot to haul back to Tennessee, we had to load up my mother-in-law's car so she could bring the rest when they visited us the following week. Bunny is definitely going to be one well outfitted baby!

Yeah, some shower pictures. Looks like yall had a ball! I'm so glad Bridget, you deserve the best. Thanks BTW for Abigail's cute brown bear decked in frills. She's carried it around everywhere since. And she loved the jewelry. Bet you had a ball playing the clothes, I see the frog footy suit, I got that one for my sister Sue's little female addition. Isn't that too cute!!
