Surprise!

My Mother and Sister had a surprise shower for me this weekend :) The guest list was only family members and was the perfect afternoon for the occasion. My Aunt even came down from New Hampshire for the shower! The surprise was at the Windsor Rose Tea Room in Mt. Dora. It is such a quaint area. I don't think the afternoon could have been any better for some afternoon tea, mini sandwiches and sweets. The doors and windows were open at the Tea Room and the light breeze was perfect. Thank you to my family for a lovely surprise!

Below is a poem my Mother and Aunt wrote for little Eli that they shared at the shower:
 
Eli

There’s a reason our women
Are gathered today
It’s too early for Christmas –
Or Thanksgiving – Say!
That’s Jennifer Hamel
Eight months and still growing
Looking so lovely, so happy, so –
Glowing!

We know it’s a boy
What a thrill, what a joy
Please tell Wyatt this baby
Is more than a toy!
He’s a son, he’s a nephew
A grandson, a kid brother!
This child, Eli Hamel, he’s unique
Like no other.
Generations of women are gathered today:
Let’s celebrate!
A toast –
Eli’s on the way!
