One of the highlights of our weekend was attending a “Grandparent Shower” for some very dear friends.
Kathleen and Jack have waited quite a long time to become grandparents, and we are so excited and happy for them.
So a small group of very close friends got together to SURPRISE them with a Grandparent Shower to celebrate how happy we are for them.
Many in attendance are already grandparents. Once couple even great-grandparents. But what we all had in common was our love and joy for our friends who have been through a lot and are so excited to become grandparents.
I put together a little Gramma’s Survival basket for Kathleen.
And Hubby created the cutest ever Grampa’s Infant Assistant Kit – all on his own! One Ziploc baggie was filled with “equipment” and “instructions for Diaper Changing…
and the other was filled with Nap Time Supplies, including a bottle of Jameson Irish Whiskey for “medicinal spirits” for our new Irish Grandpa.
We also gave them a keepsake book to work on to fill with Memories for their grandchild and a couple of books to read with their grandchild that are so adorably written and illustrated on How to Babysit a Grandma and How to Babysit a Grandpa.
I wrapped them up and added a little watercolor card I made.
Our hosts had delicious beverages…
And fifty pink roses were displayed all around. Can you guess what sex the grandchild is going to be?
We started with a toast.
And so enjoyed watching them open the few little gifts we bought for them to celebrate their joy.
Kathleen and Jack shared reading glasses,
and it was fun to watch Kathleen explain finger puppets to Grandpa.
Supplies for bath time at grandma and grandpa’s house included more pink…
soft and fuzzy stuff!
And hubby enjoyed one of his first showers with two awesome hostesses! Thanks Cindy and Sally.
And all under the pretense that Jack was bringing some of his amazing homegrown heirloom tomatoes to a picnic where Gary and Cindy needed them.
We love you Jack and Kathleen and can’t wait to celebrate and love your bundle of joy!
Cheers & Hugs,
