Rosary Shower

Two women from our church threw our family a rosary shower in honor of our new baby yesterday. There was a total of 6 families that came, which means there were A LOT of kids. It was so fun watching them run around outside. Fritter was the youngest by quite a bit. The next oldest was 5, but he kept up with them pretty well. Amazingly enough, he was not the dirtiest by the end of the day. He came in second. ;-)

It was a nice shower. All the kids sat on the floor while the adults sat on the chairs, and the kids took turns leading the rosary. There is something so wonderful hearing a 5 year old lead a rosary. Even Fritter filled in with his own "Amen"s now and then. Afterwards we had some delicious cake and punch. The men were all afraid we were going to make them play shower games, which was kind of funny, but it wasn't that type of a shower. We all just enjoyed each others company. It was welcoming to us to be thought of by such wonderful people. It's taken us quite sometime, but we are finally settling into our new home. The shower was a lot of fun.
Here is a picture of the cake, and below it the table set-up.
