The Finishing Touches (Photostory)
The Langfords are just about finished getting the baby shower room ready. Just a few more things left to do.
Camille finished the food table and is finishing up the treats for each table. Grace and her man, Kevin, are trying to hang the banner. Dominique, Grace's twin sister, just finished putting the tablecloths on the gift table. Grace and Kevin's daughter, is trying to get the rocking chair going, but it's too close to the wall to move.
"Grace, are you guys almost finished? We need to finish tidying up. The guests will start arriving in about an hour." (Camille)
"Almost mom. We just have the banner left to do." (Grace)
"Do you guys need help?" (Dominique)
"Just let us know if it's straight once we get it up there." (Grace)
Just at that moment, William, Camille's husband, enters the room with his youngest granddaughter, Dominique's only child.
"I think I'm going to need a chair to get it high enough." (Grace)
"Hey Dad. You need me to take her now?" (Dominique)
"No. I got her." (William)
"I think this is high enough. Now put your side up." (Grace)
"Well if it isn't one of my prettiest granddaughters. Come give your granddad a big hug." (William)
"Mommy the table looks great. Kendra's going to love it." (Dominique)
"Thanks, sweetie." (Camille)
"Oooh wee. Now that's a good hug." (William)
"Hey guys, how's the banner? Is it straight?" (Grace)
"Kevin's side needs to come up a bit." (Camille)
Kevin and Grace fix the banner then step back to look at their work.
"That's much better." (Camille)
"Thanks for helping." (Grace)
"No problem. Maybe one day I'll be putting up a banner for us." (Kevin)
Grace hears him, but pretends not to.
"Mommy can I have a bloon?" (baby girl)
"You want a balloon? Let's go see if we can find an extra one." (Dominique)
"Well I'm going to get out of here. What time should I pick you up?" (Kevin)
"The shower is scheduled to last for three hours, but you might want to come back right before it ends. We may need help carrying out the gifts." (Grace)
"Aye aye captain." (Kevin)
Kevin says goodbye to the rest of the Langfords, then gives his daughter a hug. The rest of the Langfords finish tidying up the room and preparing for the guests. William leaves a short while later. Kendra is one of the first guest to arrive. We will check in on the party in a couple of days.
HEADS UP: There's a name dilemma. Appears I have been calling Grace's daughter Courtney and Robin's daughter, Courtney. One of these little girls will be renamed and all the blog entries will reflect the changed name. This will happen before we rejoin the party since both little girls will be at the baby shower.
