Back to the Baby Shower (Photostory)

Finally we are back to the shower.  Camille addresses the ladies.

"Thank you all for coming out today.  My niece, Kendra, has been like a daughter to me, so I am thrilled that she and Nathanial will be welcoming a beautiful baby boy soon.  It almost feels like I'm getting another grandchild."  (Camille) 

Just at that moment, Jacquelyn appears in the doorway, carrying a diaper cake.

"Speaking of daughters, hi honey.  You made it." (Camille to Jacquelyn)
"Okay, everyone at this time we are going to have a little lunch, so help yourself."  (Camille)

Some of the ladies make their way to the food table.

"Racquel, hey girl.  And look at Miss cutie pie."  (Jacquelyn)
"I was wondering if you were coming."  (Racquel)
"I had to stop by the office this morning."  (Jacquelyn)

"Come on, Mommy."  (Kourtney)
"Kourtney stop! You are going to fall."  (Grace)

"Okay, it's time to get my grub on."  (Tanisha)

"Alicia, move over.  You are in the way."  (Vanessa)
"She's fine." (Jordan)

Camille proceeds to remove the centerpieces so people can have room to eat.
"Mom, do you want me to help?"  (Grace)
"No, I got it.  You guys go get something to eat."  (Camille)

Pretty soon everyone has their plates.
"Hmmm Alicia.  Smells good, doesn't it." (Vanessa)

Jordan has scooted out to make a few phone calls.  Jackie and her daughters are catching up with each other.

Kendra is walking around and visiting with all the guests. 

"What's wrong, cuz?"  (Kendra)

"I'm okay.  Just a little tired."  (Jacquelyn)

"Are you going to eat something?"  (Dominique)
"No!"  (Tinia)

"Awww, what's wrong Tinia?"  (Kendra)
"She just needs a nap.  See what you have to look forward to?"  (Dominique)
"Well, I can't wait.  Of course I'm saying that now.  We'll see what I have to say two years from now."  (Kendra)

Racquel is getting ready to feed Shay.  She'll grab something to eat later.

Here is a closeup of the diaper cake.  Some diaper cakes will have baby accessories attached.  They didn't look right on my cake, so I kept it simple.

When we return we will embark on some shower games and gifts.  I promise it won't be long before we see them again.  Everything is all ready for the next episode. 

Note:  cuz = cousin
          grub = food

  3. I really love the way you set up your scenes. Very realistic. I'm glad I'm not the only one out there that spends hours and days setting up scenes for stories! Casey's about did me in! LOL :-)

    1. Cindi - Thanks. No I don't spend that kind of time setting up dios. Most dios only get about 15 - 20 mins of my time for setup. But sometimes I will want something for an upcoming story, like the diaper cake, and that may delay the story. I have to be inspired to complete most projects. I just didn't have the right ribbons until this past weekend. As time goes on, you will probably figure out ways to cut down your setup time.

  19. I have never heard of a diaper cake! Just saying it reminds me of poop, but it's so freaking cute!

    1. Muff - ROFL! Looks like poop? I'm still trying to see that. Look up diaper cakes on the internet. You will be amazed at the creative things people come up with.

    2. LOL, What? NO! I'm saying when I hear the name "diaper cake" I envision a bunch of poop in a circle made to look like a cake.
