I sure wish I lived in Texas and could host a baby shower for Charlotte and her precious new "Cupcake." Especially since this little one will be the very first baby they bring home in over 7 years! As fun as it would be, I just don't think it is possible for all of us to meet in Texas, so I decided to host a "Virtual Baby Shower" here instead.. Won't you please join us?!?
I thought this would be such a nice way to show Charlotte how much she means to all of us and how much we all appreciate the endless inspiration, coloring pages, and just everything she shares so freely through her blogging!
So, go bake a batch of your favorite cupcakes (or maybe make a quick 5 minute chocolate
Whether you contribute to the group gift, or just offer a quick little prayer for Charlotte to have a safe delivery and a healthy baby, you are all welcome to join the fun and help celebrate the life of this sweet little one!
I know that Charlotte and her family have been given some hand-me-downs from friends and they are planning on purchasing/making whatever else they need. However, when I heard that they were going to order a new crib (to replace the 30-year old crib they had been loaned for their older children and had since given back) I asked if I could please organize it's purchase as a group gift from all her friends here online. Those of you that know me personally, know just how much I love coordinating group gifts for friends and family!
If you are interested in contributing to the crib for Cupcake, you can do so by clicking on the Paypal "Donate" button pictured below. I know that these are not great financial times for many people, so please don't feel like you need to contribute much to participate in this group gift. Any amount is welcome and more than appreciated.
Comments will close at midnight on June 23rd, and on June 24th, Charlotte's birthday, I will announce the winners of all the games and door prizes!
Thank you all for attending this Virtual Baby Shower hosted here at Shower of Roses!!
Father in heaven, grant us the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on us. Let us realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make us good mothers to all our children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary we ask your continued blessings on our families. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.
