Baby Shower!

Yesterday my friend Nancy and I hosted a baby shower at my place for Heather, Damon and their new son Finn. They have been waiting and waiting for a China adoption and decided last year to adopt domestically. In July they got a call that a baby boy was just born and waiting for them. Suddenly and in an instant they became a family of three!

It was such a pleasure to finally be able to plan a shower for Heather after all these years of waiting!

Here’s our home-baked chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese frosting…yum! I made the little cupcake toppers using a digital scrapbook kit.

We hung a laundry line and filled it with little outfits and socks for Finn.

Nancy made a zebra print hooded towel…

Thanks for a GREAT time and wonderful celebration. Dan, Domi and I were all so happy and felt so warm and fuzzy after we left. It is wonderful to see so many loving families with their adopted children - we are blessed to be part of your circle. XOXOXO, Laura
