Almost exactly one year ago the women of our family gathered at The Feller House to shower “Little Macy” with love and gifts. That time Erin was the mama, and Little Macy turned out to be Sage. This year we have Baby Macy due to arrive in another month or so, grand #8! This time Linsey is the mama, and today the women of our family gathered at The Feller House to shower “Baby Macy” with love and gifts. Again we know neither gender nor name, so more big surprises are in our near future.
This much we know: it’s a baby.
And here’s the evidence. We didn’t even need to put our hands on Linsey’s belly to know there was life in there.
But I’ve gotten ahead of myself.
Erin and my niece Amy made some colorful flags—bunting—for decorations. Feller House hostess Barb Mitchell and her grandson Derric helped hang them.
Erin had some fun “activities” (not to be confused with shower games).
Praying or nodding off? Could be either one.
Goodies came next!
And then the gifts! Goodness…..we have some creative ones in our family. Only after Linsey had opened two beautiful crocheted/knit blankets and hats and booties and cocoon and stuffed bear and even my own sewn gift did I think to snap pictures. When will I learn?
It was a lovely afternoon. Now all we have to do is sit back and wait.
