The Tribbling Ladies host a baby shower for one of their babies

Another one of our Tribbling Babies, lovely Nicole is adding a baby girl to our extended family.  Our Tribbling Ladies are always looking for excuses to get together and celebrate and spill the odd glass of wine and talk about their children and husbands.  Now we can add in-laws and grandchildren to our repertoire.  Not that we ever ran out of things to talk about, but our tables now abound with phones being passed around with the latest pictures of the grandchildren.  

This being Nicole's first baby presented us with another opportunity to hold a baby shower and talk about our fond memories of our children growing up on this wonderful street.  

Lovely Nicole and her mom Claudia

Oma excited about the 4th generation little girl.

Always lots to talk about when we get together.  It turned out into a beautiful evening so we had appetizers, cocktails and dinner outside.  

I think it is impossible for a group of ladies to get together at a baby shower and not start reliving their own labours.  There was definitely some serious conversation going on.  

 We were so lucky to have a surprise visit from Baby Norah.  Lauren's lovely daughter was born in April.  She was more than happy to be cuddled by all the grandma's and the grandma's-in-waiting.  :)  And Lauren was able to give Nicole some advice that wasn't 30+ years old.  :)

Bob's famous Creamed Mustard Pork Tenderloin served with a rice pilaf and salad.  Delish

 Carrot Cake with rum infused raisins.  Carrot cupcakes with no rum nor raisins.  

And to my shame, my battery ran out before we started opening the presents.  Lots of fun things were opened.  A big thank you to Nicole for letting us join in your celebration.  

 I am so blessed to be a part of this wonderful group of ladies who met on a street 30 years ago as we were starting out with new homes and new babies.  Now we are celebrating our friends children's weddings and babies.  

xoxo from the Tribbling Ladies.
