Family and friends gathered to welcome the latest bundle of joy to enter into the Hood family … Miss Avery. I can’t wait to become an Auntie! This baby girl is so blessed to have so many who love her already … we showered her mommy on Saturday. In case you were wondering, Avery’s mom and dad are my brother and sister-in-law, Daryl and Alexis. I was able to snap a few photos of the day to share with my crafting friends.

Of course, the Hood gals (honorary or not) are super excited to add a little more pink into the family. We clean up nice, but don’t think for a second that this little one won’t be afraid to get a little muddy from time to time. 😉

My siblings live atop this beautiful mountain and lucky for us, the shower landed on a sunny fall day.

This is Kate, Alexis’ sister. She did a great job planning the event and even threw in a couple crafty touches … I was impressed! 🙂
The baby clothesline decorations were a nice touch!
Kate even made a bath scrub for guests to take home … aren’t they adorable!?
If you know my family well, you will already know who made the cake. Brett’s aunt does a marvelous job! Looking for a cake?
Cakes by Susie in Littlestown, Pa., is my recommendation for sure!
I’m not the only one in the family with a crafty-bone. Check out this afghan Mary crocheted. It’s as soft as it looks and matches the nursery.

It’s been a tradition of my mom’s to make a stepping stool for newborns welcomed into our family tree. She painted this all freehand and added a cute pink ruffle!
Well, by the end of the day all of us felt a little like this cutie! 😉
