Psalm 139:13

Last week, my friend Debbie invited me to a baby shower.  A very special baby shower.

Let me give you a little background ..... Debbie has been the hostess of a small-group through  church for many years.  Lately, they have changed their focus from study to study and service in the community.

It is not unusual to find this group serving supper at the homeless shelter ..... or cleaning a community center for troubled youth.

Last week, they organized a baby shower for the Crisis Pregnancy Center ........... and I was invited!

First of all ........ Debbie is your gal if you want fun games at your parties!  Secondly, I am NOT your gal if you want to win at baby shower Family Feud!

The decorations were fun ... the food was wonderful!!

But the stars of the evening were the gifts.  Oh my goodness!

All the gifts were donated to help teens and young women get a good start for their babies.  I love this center as they teach parenting skills and help keep the young parents on track along with helping with the health needs of the expectant mother.

Diapers and wipes and pacifiers and some of the most adorable outfits EVER!!!  There were lime green jelly bean shoes that were just too cute!

I started to take pictures .... and obviously , had the wrong settings on my camera.  Instead of messing with it ... I gave up and joined in the fun of oooooh-ing and aaaaaah-ing.

But I wanted to make sure that the gifts I gave had a little homemade touch.

I loved this little hat.  In fact, I loved it so much .... I knit it twice!








Cuz you never know when some one might just name their baby Waldo!!!
