Happy Baby to Come!

My baby son (now 25 years old) and his beautiful wife are expecting their first child at the end of May.  Since she has been having some difficulties the ladies at our church decided to give them a baby shower early. The shower on Saturday was well attended and everyone agrees that my newest grandchild will be the best dressed little girl in our town.  This is the card I made for the gift my husband and I gave them.

I couldn't resist using one of the new Magnolia Princess images as we know that the baby will be a girl.  This little one is soon to be her daddy's little princess.
