Dear future niece,
We had a party in your honor last weekend.
You probably won’t remember it,
but you were there, well kind of.
Your grandmother (my mama) worked very hard.
Aunt Laura (you might know her better
as the Big Lady) and I helped too.
The food was tasty and of course all made from scratch.
I even used your great-grandmother’s (my Mimi’s) old sifter
and cookie press for the cheese straws.
One day, I’ll show you how to make those.
Pink was everywhere
Mary brought these adorable (and delicious) petits fours
We had a craft table to make onesies for you, which everyone enjoyed!
They turned out quite adorable
We showered you with gifts
Darling, you must wear this when we go to London
Avery declared it the best day ever as it was her first party with the ladies.
Meanwhile, the grandmothers were doing their grandmother thing, sewing.
These, little lady, are people who are
very excited about your arrival.
These are the women we spend most holidays with!
We used to babysit these girls,
and now they’re old enough to
babysit you. We’ve come full circle!
We’re ready for you and can’t to meet you!
