Joy’s Baby Shower (also, meet Esme!)

(I am drowning in a back-log of photos that I want to get posted to this blog. It’s my need to stay organized. No, my dream. I never get it fully accomplished in real life.)

Today is a special post– my sister joy’s baby shower! She was glowing and beautiful on the day of her shower. Well, always really.

Here is what she looks like if she thinks you are really funny. Not me, whoever it was that told her that joke. I’d say that is a Miller guffaw. Millers like to laugh.

Some of the decor– basically mom, Julana and I all brought stuff, then tossed it together.

Julana and I each hand selected only 1 child to bring to the party (it was by the water!). Here are the two “chosen ones”.
I picked Sterling because he has legs, yet cannot walk. Oh, and because I am his only food group.

By the water– we had it on one of my parent’s bed and breakfast cabin decks.


Hot day- drinks were a must.

Sterling asked that no more pictures be taken of him for the day. Gracie said, I’m still open! 🙂

Lovely scenery.

Sister Jacinta with the pom-poms she made.

Julana and Joy– looking pretty.

Mom and Jacinta confer about who’s turn it is to take out the trash. jk…

Love me some pink flowers.

Joy and two co-worker friends.

Mother ♥ daughter…

We had an AWESOME turn-out. A shot of a few of the guests at the par-tay.

Esmeralda Kate (Esme) was born June 20, 2013. (8lbs 11.5 oz 21.5 in long) WHAT a blessing she is! A prayed for, longed for, and beloved baby. Thank you Jesus for the beauty and preciousness of her…

I have a ton of pictures of her, on my camera with my San Diego pictures. So far, I have been too lazy (read: overwhelmed) to get them off of my camera. So until later, here are 3 pictures I, without shame, stole from Joy’s Facebook. I can be SUCH a bad-girl every now and again.
We love, love, love little Esme!

Lovely Gracie and her new baby cousin.

Have a super day… I need to go make food, get groceries, and pack for Kauffman family summer weekend!

    What a gorgeous baby shower, and the location is tops! What fun to do it for your sister. I can’t wait until it’s my turn. 🙂 You and your sisters are all SO so pretty.

    And I love the name Esme! I just heard the name within the past year, and it has such a beautiful sound. Congratulations to Joy! And what a lovely baby girl niece you have! She will be so loved, I know.

    Happy 4th!
    Oh, and I’ll be so excited when you get to your other pictures and posts. 🙂
