5 - Time to open prezzies. Including lovely confections like this lingerie.
6 - And this collection of recipes from my sister's friends at the office.
7 - A new day, a new shower! This time at the cottage.
8 - This shower was hosted by Michelle's new family-in-law-to-be. Above, her fiance's mother Joan chats with her lifelong friend.
My sister's new family-in-law has sisters, step-daughters, cousins, nieces and a step-granddaughter.
9 - More delish dishes of yumminess.
10 - More fun - above, my mom nabs her gift back during a Yankee gift exchange.
The photographer informs Michelle what she'll be saying to Newt on the wedding night. These are taken from all of the bride-to-be's remarks as she opens her gifts. Hilarious!
11 - More frothy confections!
12 - Newt's sister bestows a handmade cooking apron to Michelle. Now she's in like Flynn.
13 - A lifetime of happiness is wished for Michelle and Newt!
Join me next week to hear what my sister's shower predicted would be her wedding night words.
Janet says I can't wait to read the 'wedding night vows' next week - I've been to showers that have played that game and it always turns out to be hilarious :)
Anne MacFarlane says Julia, it looks like so much fun. Hope Michelle's big day is just as wonderful.
Kelly Boyce says Congratulations to Michelle and Newt! I'm so happy for them.
