The big day arrives...if only the baby would

 
These are my girls, granddaughter Ashley and my daughter Tracey.
 
 This is the reception hall after we decorated.
 There were about 45 women in attendance. THANK YOU to everyone. It took Ashley over an hour to open all her gifts. She was exhausted. Although the room was air conditioned, she said, "I'm so hot!" The next gift she opened was a bib. She held it up and it was imprinted with, MY MOM IS HOT! Perfect timing. The room was rocking with laughter. 
 
This is the photo of the expectant parents.
 
This is the card I pasted the photo inside of and wrote a note telling them to get ready for the realities. I did give them a beautiful card as well.
 
 
This is the cake I made for my baby's, baby's baby shower today. It matches the invitation with one exception, there was a doggy in the basket. Do you think she'll notice it's a teddy bear instead?  Nobody noticed. I arrived at 11:30 a.m. to help decorate the hall. I got home at 4:30 p.m. I told my honey I was going to lie down for a few minutes. I awoke at 10:30 p.m.

I am passing my moniker to my daughter; little Liam will call her Nana. I will always be Nana to my grandchildren, but now I will assume the alias of Grammy for my great grandson.

Sweet cake! I hope you play a lot of fun games at the shower. I don't mean to brag, but I won the "Get the Baby Out of the Ice Cube" game at my niece's shower.

Good grief, Linda. You write. You edit. You wrangle Bill. You teach preschool kids.

AND you decorate cakes?

(Grrrrr.)
