Waiting For Baby Kila!

Today was the baby shower for my best friend, Valerie Miller Buxton.

Kila Paten Buxton is due to arrive on May 22nd,
but all signs show she'll make an early grand entrance!

Rheannon Miller (Valerie's sister-in-law),
Ashley Vickers (Valerie's friend)
& I were the hostesses, but survived with much help
from Kathy Miller (Mee-Mee)
I LOVE YOU BABY KILA and can't wait to meet you!
How stinkin' precious is this cake?
If you live in South Alabama or South Mississippi
and want Tasha Seymour's info, let me know.

This creation took some TIME!!
Mee-Mee is SO crafty!!
It's a Baby Carriage Fruit Tray!

Isn't she just precious!!
I LOVE YOU, VALERIE!!
Big Sister
Zoey Pate Miller!

Valerie, Zoey and Mee-Mee

Me, Valerie, Rheannon and Ashley

Despite a fiasco with a jalapeno jar and tile floor
(which was my fault) there were no major hiccups in everything going AWESOME!!


Matt, Hannah Noelle, Cannon, Gunner, Lauren, Avery, Andrea, Stephen, Kristy & Jayce I are headed to Gulf Shores for the day tomorrow. WISH ME LUCK! My Aunt and Uncle are down from Michigan for the babies' dedication on Easter Sunday combined with their yearly vacation and we're going to visit! I'm packing, plannin, packing, plannin and I'm sure I'll be making a few stops along the way for things I forgot!!
I'll try to update on the Beach Trip soon!

Looks like the shower was a HUGE success. The cake and fruit basket look AMAZING :) What a great friend you are!

Out of curiousity...how tall are you?

Yea, that picture makes me look freakishly tall!! I had on wedge heels so that added a few inches and Valerie and Ashley are pretty short, so all that added together and it looked like I was on stilts! I am 5'9", which is pretty tall already!!

Thanks for replying and suggesting :) I am 6 feet and with the heels I did not notice before, I thought you were too :)
