My RHSS Mardi Gras Brunch and then a Baby Shower

My Red Hat Scarlet Sophisticates group had a brunch at the New Orleans Cafe here in Fredericksburg on Sunday. We had a great time and sang, Marie LaVeaux (if you could call it singing). The food was delicious. I had "Crabby Benedict". Which was Eggs Benedict on a flaky pastry, ham egg, and crab meat with homemade hollandaise sauce - Yummy!

Immediately, following that I had a baby shower to go to for a young lady that I use to keep after school when she was about 11 y.o. (now 28 y.o.). Well, she did not make it to the shower as on Fri. morning she had the baby. A boy (which we knew already)...Well after eating some wonderful food again (saved room as I knew I was going and the food would be irresistable (Greek). We loaded up my Explorer and a couple other vehicles with gifts to take to the house (she came home that morning), so I got to see the baby and ended up spending the evening visiting with them, taking pictures of her opening all of her gifts and eating more food for dinner. Again, Yummy! Got home and realized I forgot to find out what she named the baby. I do know he was 6 lbs. 9 ozs. He is adorable! I will advise of his name later. I am making her Baby Shower Thank You cards for her and gave her the first 20 of them and only have 80 to go. Plan to get them to her in a few days as things got crazy around here. I threw out my back (unknown how) and couldn't do too much on Tues., Wed. I had a doctors appt. and then Jacob called with good news - more on that next. I will also post a picture of the "Thank You" cards when I get some more made (forgot to take pics of the first batch).

Here are some of the pics I took of the baby, Irene opening presents and Grandma Sophia and new grandson.

Oh, he is so precious! Jay has the same blue blanket that the baby is wrapped in, and he still loves it, so I hope her little boy does too!
