~~Our new "bundle of joy" is here!!~~

Lacee Anne - shown here with her Mommy right after birth...she is definitely a gift from Heaven.

She has stolen our hearts...almost forgot how little newborns are. 7 lbs 6 oz.
A few pictures of her family....they are all excited she's here!!

Mimi & Pop

The blanket she came home from the hospital grandmother hand embroidered it and I brought both of my girls home from the hospital in it.

The next picture shows the lining she used...even though she has passed on, her legacy lives on...each of my granddaughters have come home in this blanket as well. Grandma Frances, as we called her, is Laurel's great grandmother and Lacee's great great grandmother.

Will post other pictures soon...I did finish her blessing dress on time. Will get some pictures taken of how it turned out.

The setting of our daughter's "pink" baby shower. She received her guests for an elegant sit down luncheon with all the trimmings recently, to celebrate the upcoming arrival of her baby girl.

The inside of the historic home (now Penny's Restaurant) in our neighboring town of Templeton.

Laurel prior to the luncheon showing us her 8 month baby "bump" .
Tea cup table decorations that served as centerpieces and later as door prizes for lucky party guests.

Her beautiful cake-classy and elegant just like Laurel.

More "door prize" decorations and game winner give-aways! Beautiful Lavender sachets.

Some of baby gifts - handmade items I made for my girl and granddaughter.

We had a very fun afternoon, celebrating with family and friends.
