Pickled Pink Eggs- Boiled eggs pickled in organic beets juice, apple cider, sugar and water. The longer you let them sit in the beet juice the darker they get. I only let these sit for a day so they only be slightly pink.

Jennifer and Candy, her mother-in-law

Jennifer’s mother-in-law, Candy came all the way from Dallas, TX. She’s a worker!  She goes with the flow. My dish washer was broken and my hot water heater stopped working the day before the shower. She didn’t miss a beat, she washed dishes for hours in cold water.

Alex and Jennifer

Jennifer, Alex and baby girl! Psalm 127:3-5 “Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!

  3. Joanne Peterson says:

    What a lovely, lovely shower! This is so feminine, the decorations are homemade but very elegant, and the food is nutritious, but so tempting looking to want to eat! The your daughter’s mother-in-love looks like a wonderful woman. Just her expression says so much about her.

    Enjoy your time to rejuvenate.

      Sharon, I took a look at your cupcake recipe because you mentioned in your blog these for the shower were gluten and dairy free. My husband has to be gluten and dairy free, but can eat a small amount of goat yogurt and cheese. He’s bothered by the casein in cow dairy. What did you use to substitute for the dairy in the recipe? Could you please advise? I’d love to be able to make him a delicious cake recipe. I have so far not had very much success. Thank you for the wonderful ideas. Grace and peace to you Sharon, Joanne

  4. Wow! Beautiful! How special. As someone who is not very good at pulling off parties and decorations and all of the pieces that get in put into something like this, I think you are amazing! So glad you had such a beautiful day.
