Saturday Sisters: Donna Howland's Shower
Our UMW Vice-President
Donna Howland, a member of the Saturday Sister's Circle is really
pregnant, expecting their little angel around May 25th!
Wilcox, also a Saturday Sister and board member, who loves to
entertain, hosted a baby shower for her. Donnie's daughter and granddaughter helped
her as well. We played 3 games. By looking at Donna's belly, we had to
guess how long of a piece of ribbon to cut, which should go all the way
around her middle. The closest ribbon won a prize!Secondly, we
were given a list of riddles which each described a body part of a
baby. Thirdly, we had to watch and remember all the stuff Donna should
take to the hospital in a suitcase. The one who could
remember the most won a prize.

After playing these fun games, Donna started
opening gifts, with Donnie's great grandson supervising, as his grandma
took some pictures, and his mom wrote down who gave what to Donna.
Donna needed a lot of stuff, and she sure got a lot of nice presents.
We played pass the baby as well. This young man, who is sitting on Maxine's lap, was quite affable.
Donna received 3 or 4 crocheted / knitted blankets,
and a lovely quilt. Tina Bushart, the pastor's wife is holding
sweet baby now!
One can never have too many sleepers!!!
