Pink is the Word

It was a pretty fall day for the drive to Lafayette to attend another shower in honor of Darci and baby Haleigh. Becky's home was beautifully decorated for Christmas, with an awesome freshly cut 9 foot tall tree.

The boys felt it was no place for them, so they headed out to watch Purdue chalk up another victory at Mackey Arena. Here are Matthew and Andrew ready to go. Boiler Up!

The tables were decorated with M & Ms and darling wrapped "lollipops" that were actually onesies for the baby to wear. She is well supplied!

We were greeted with a refreshing mimosa to start our brunch festivities. Becky learned that the secret to a perfect mimosa is to put a sugar cube in the bottom of the glass. Yummy!

After a delicious brunch, Darci was ready to open her many gifts. I must say, pink is the theme of the day. Tiny pink crocs! So much fun!!

Clara was very eager to help her Aunt Darci. It won't be long before Clara becomes the big sister to a new little one in her family. I am sure she will enjoy her new role.

Aunt Shylah brought a great bib for Haleigh. Uncle David helped pick it out. Never too early to start showing her Boiler pride.

A girly smocked dress from Granny Susan,

and a sassy little dress from Grandma Leslie.

A cute pink hoodie with bunny ears.

Lollipop brownies for dessert. Girls need their chocolate. :)

Nana made the trip too. Her pink cast went well with the theme of the day.

Our amazing hostesses in front of the Christmas tree. Katie, Becky, and Erin. We missed Sarah, who had to work. It was so much fun to see old friends and share the excitement of a new baby!
