This past Saturday, our family had the blessing of showering Baby Kiesling!! My sister Keri, is due on November 22 with their first child! Kawika & Keri have decided to not find out the sex of the baby! So, not only are we anxiously awaiting the arrival of the baby, but we are anxiously waiting to see what they’ll have! My AH-MAZZZING Sister-In-Law Amy, planned the shower!! I was SO thrilled when she agreed to do it!! She does such a WONDERFUL job!!
Amy decided to go with the theme of growth (green/plant). It is a theme that so perfectly fits Keri! Amy used biodegradable plates and utensils, plants for decorations, seeds for favors, some of the food was plant based, and the water was infused with lime and mint. Everything was delicious!! I did my part of contributing a few vegan/plant strong dishes! I LOVE to share my love of plant strong food!! Here are some pictures! We all had a BLESSED time of fellowship!!
Biodegradable utensils & plates!
Yummy plant strong food! Bruschetta, Eggless Egg Salad Sandwich, and Gado Gado Skewers
More food!! Those of you that have known Keri for a while, may know of her LOVE of madarin oranges!!
Vegan dark chocolate cupcakes!! Amy did an AWESOME job of making them look like plants!!
Infused water and sparkling cider, and mason jar cups!
The Kaneshiro & Kiesling families!
I’ve known Amber since she was a baby, and I can’t believe she’ll be graduating from high school in a few weeks!! Her family has been my hanai family, and I even lived with them before I got married. It has been a true joy to see the young woman that God has transformed her into!
For the last two weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of hanging out with her and taking her Senior pictures! I never thought that I’d be taking Senior pictures, since I’ve focused more on wedding photography. But I enjoyed my time with Amber! A couple of weeks ago I picked her up from school and headed out to the Old Maui High School. Last week, I picked her up from school again, and we headed up to Iao Valley. Here are a few of my favorites from our two sessions!
Amber, I’m praying for you as you finish up your senior year, and get ready for college in Arizona! I love you! May you always strive to bring Glory to God, and enjoy Him forever!!
