A Shower for Greta

While we were in Georgia, we were glad to have Marvin's older sister, Mina, with us. She came up to visit and to attend a baby shower in Atlanta for our future great niece, Greta Grey Grimm.

We headed out early Saturday morning for Atlanta via Ellijay...

We stopped at Panorama orchards to pick up some goodies.

Then it was down I 575 to Duluth, Georgia.

We were about 30 minutes late getting there as the Atlanta traffic held up up. The party was in full swing with lots of Will and Jen's friends  and family in attendance.

Our niece, Brittany, did a great job with the decorating...the theme was April Showers bring May flowers. And Greta will be a lovely flower added to the bouquet of our great nieces and nephews.

The Cake with a G....lavender is going to be the color of the nursery.

We all filled out envelopes with our addresses to make thank you notes easier. We also were asked to write a note on a diaper so that the parents can enjoy reading it during those middle of the night changes.

Homemade Lemonade, Water and Sweet Tea were on tap.

Nephew Will trying to be as tall as Uncle Marvin! All the boys want to be 6 '5".

Will and Jen....both serve our country in the National Guard. That is how they met!

Sis in law, Barb...aka Grammy. Ella is looking forward to having another girl cousin in the family!

Family time with the Grimm side of the family is rare so we always enjoy being together.  And of course we can't wait to meet our new great niece.

Very cute decorations! The picture of the nephew and Marvin is so cute too.

Such creative ideas for the baby shower...and a lot of work went into it with so many of the food/drinks were homemade. That says a lot about the Grimm family. :-)

Looks like a lovely shower. My daughter tells me that the traffic in Atlanta always stinks. Have a great day, Arlene.

It sounds like great family time and how wonderful to have a new little person coming into the family :)
I'd love to have a new baby to cuddle but I keep telling the grandkids not to rush into it, to see a bit of life first. I can't have it both ways I know and I guess in the end they'll do it their way anyway.
