"Hostess with the Mostess"

Drop by
And say hi
To our Lil' Sweetie Pie!

Gammie's creative juices were flowing the day she came up with that little ditty for the invitations for the Fall Open House honoring our Miss Gillian Grace. This past Saturday, Gammie, with the help of Gillian's Great Aunt Helen, hosted a beautiful get together complete with Fall decorations, an assortment of delicious appetizers, and my favorite, CAKE! Looking adorable in a hot pink, corduroy, and monogrammed jumper from Tiny Town (our newest discovery and currently our most favorite store in the world), Gillian acted coyly as she was introduced time and time again to a houseful of friendly admirers. Close to thirty of Gammie's friends stopped by to meet the newest member of our family. Compliments about the baby flew just as quickly as the cheesecake hors d'Ĺ“uvres, and not surprisingly, Gammie's lil' sweetie pie was the hit of the party. Despite stressing "no gifts please" for our little fete, many of Gammie's friends couldn't resist the opportunity spoil Gillybean---again! With so many people that love and care for her, Gillian Grace is one lucky girl!

Yummy, cake!

Isn't this a pretty table scape? Yay for Gammie and Great Aunt Helen!

Gillian, meet Mrs. Malloy.

Tuckered out from all fun!
