A few weeks back, we threw Cara and her twins a shower! It was adorably owl-themed:
Look Whoooo’s Having Two!
I say ‘we’, but really all I did was design the invitations and show up, the other hostesses did all the work. Those Kenwood ladies really know how to throw a shindig!
We wrote funny notes on diapers for all those late nights the Kramps are looking forward to, and we wrote sweet prayers and blessings to encourage them as well!
And of course we ate owl cupcakes and owl cake.
Our lovely decorator, Jacintha, spent who knows how much time and effort making pennants to match the baby quilt design that Cara chose, and little boy & girl owls for the flower vases.
It was a sweet time of fellowship with the ladies from church. There were little girls running around playing, women chatting and soothing babies. It was full of life & the love of the Lord. And cake.
I can think of no better way to celebrate Cara’s twins!
My gift to Cara is the quilts that I’m (slowly) making, but I still wanted to have a little something to give her at the shower. I dug through my fabric stash & my Pinterest boards, and came up with these cuties, courtesy of GoogieMomma’s free pattern:
Cara asked me to name them for her, so I decided on something literary:
Holden & Phoebe from Catcher in the Rye
They may not be twins, but they’re a good brother/sister pair.
We’re all so excited to welcome these littles into the world! But not too soon, ya hear babies? Keep cooking for now…
