Kaneshiro Family Celebrates Gracie! 4.14.2012

I can’t WAIT to welcome my niece into this world!!  She is supposed to arrive on May 15!!  So we’ll soon be welcoming a new member into the Kaneshiro family!!

On Saturday, April 14, 2012, the Kaneshiro family celebrated Gracie’s life, with a baby shower for Mom!  Since my Sister-In-Law, Amy (Gracie’s Mom), decided to decorate the nursery in an owl theme, the baby shower, of course, had an owl theme!!  My dear friend, Kelly Yokouchi, made Amy & Gracie a diaper cake!

All the other elements, I either got from Ben Franklin, or Etsy.  I think I spent WAY too many hours on Etsy, looking for just the right element for the party!! 😀

Dessert/favor table! 😀

I’m not a games person.  That is one reason why I HATE going to showers!!  I enjoy a time of fellowship, or actually doing activities.  🙂  So one of the activities included signing a frame (like a guest book).  Once Gracie is born, a picture of her can be inserted into the frame!  Another activity was a prayer book.

The Kaneshiro’s are known for having good “grub!”  YUM!! 😀

Another activity that I asked the family to do, is to write little notes on the back of puzzle pieces, to Gracie!  That way, when she’s working on the puzzle, she’ll see the notes from her family! 🙂

The little fellow that joined us ladies for the day!! Mr. Marburger!! 🙂 Such a cutie!!

Nicole explaining the awesomeness of the covers she made, for the baby carrier!!

Thanks to the many generous gifts from the people of Valley Isle Fellowship, Family and Friends, the Kaneshiro’s (Jeremy & Amy), are ready to welcome Gracie into the family!!  Please pray for Jeremy & Amy as they wait for the arrival of little Gracie!

Both women had to jan ken po (rock, paper, scissors), to see who won the prize! They had to break a tie for the name the baby animal game. Hilarious!!
