Sunday Favorites Anniversary Party!!! A Baby Shower for my Sis with an update!

  On Saturday, I held a baby shower for my sister Susie.  She is eight months pregnant with a baby girl! Susie, my only sister, is number 7 child in our family which includes 6 brothers. I'm the oldest child of this large brood.   We had a beautiful sunny day and a lot of lovely guests .

My new punch bowl was purchased at Goodwill for only $6.00. I made a frothy green punch.

I used pink and green with my creamy white pitcher for a centerpiece. See the cute little candy dish Gloria sent me.    I was so busy, I forgot to take pic's of the food ! Still a new blogger at this point.

I loved the cake and so did my Sister.

Susie and I.  I was 15 when she was born and quite brother weary by then. Every time my Mom went to the hospital to have another baby I thought I was finally getting my sister.  However, when Susie was finally born I had entered the I am embarrassed my parents are still having kids stage. 

Some of my sister's gal pals who came to celebrate!

My Mother in Law, the quilt lady made her this darling baby quilt. There were so many cute baby girl clothes that she will need to change her daughter's outfit 3 times a day just so she can wear them even once.  There is my daughter Katie behind her looking slightly bored. 

Two grandmas and the godmother to be!  My Mom in the blue chair.  This will be her 24th grandchild, oh my!  Susie's MIL, Shelby in the red coat.  This will be her first grandchild and she is so excited!  My sister's good friend who will be this baby girl's Godmother.

Fast Forward one year.  On April 13, 2010 little Chloe Annabelle turned 1!  

Here's my darling niece!  The one we all fight over.  She is walking, talking and has a full head of dark brown hair!

She also has a yellow polka dot bikini!   I thought this pic was just too cute! When else in your life can you have little rolls on your thighs and still look adorable in a bikini!

A cute little smile and big brown eyes.

And here she is with her Mommy and Daddy.  Happy Birthday Chloe.  And  Happy Blog Party Birthday Chari!   Be sure to visit my good friend Chari  @  Happy to Design and wish her a Happy Anniversary and enter her cool give-away!    Yahoo!!
