Here's Grampy holding her. This man is amazing with kids. I really wish sometimes we would have had a baby together. He loves Layla and spoils her, now Rossi is going to be just as spoiled.
A close up.
Uncle Gotty is in awe.
He is so proud of his niece. Just look at his face.
Isn't she just so sweet?
She is such a content baby. She doesn't care who holds her.
Rossi's telling Nana stories.
Grampy busted in the act!

A close up shot. Isn't she just the most beautiful baby you've ever seen? I think so.Nana holding her precious Rossi. She wasn't too happy at first but then she settled right down. She is so beautiful.Diana's sister Jessie was there too. She also got to hold the baby. No one else really wanted to. Hut and Scott said she was too little right now. Not sure why Liz didn't want to. You better believe me when I say me and Jess definitely wanted to hold the baby.
I hope you enjoyed meeting Rossi. I enjoyed sharing her with you. We are going back to visit her tomorrow so you know I will be getting more pictures to share.

Welcome Rossi Jean! Isnt' this poster great? Amber, who co-hosted this event, made this. The hand prints are actually Layla's hands. Isn't that awesome? I would have never thought to do that.
This is how the baby shower cake started out. I did a pull a part cake. I used to do them when I was a cake decorator at Publix. I wish I had used Publix icing for this cake, but I used Pillsbury already in a can. I will NEVER to that again. Here's why:
The icing in the can was just too soft. It kept cavin in between the cupcakes. But I'm still proud of my cake. And no one complained while they were eating it, lol. And I have to tell you that Grandpa Hut actually baked the cupcakes for me.
Here is 1/2 the table spread. Cheese and crackers, spinach dip, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, lollipops, deviled eggs, apples and grapes with this awesome dip that Amber makes.
Chips and dip, chocolates that look like baby items, pig in a blanket, and a baby bottle that was filled with M&M's. The bottle was for a game of guessing how many are in it.
This is Amber taking a picture of me, taking a picture of her. She was the best. We had the baby shower at her house. What a great hostess she is.
Wade and Diana in front of the poster. Wade didn't think I would post this because he has a cracker in his mouth.
Some shots of the guests.
Opening the first gift. Diana wanted Layla to help her. As you will see in other pictures....all the kids ended up helping her.
These were some shots of the kids helping Diana with the gifts. There were I believe 4 helping her. I wasn't in the best spot to take shots of the gifts. She got alot of diapers, formula, toys, bibs, clothes, baby snacks. Plus a few other items like the photo frame and a baby book, a foot print and hand print set. Lots of great stuff.
Finally the last bag. We played a few games in between. Baby Bingo, Word Scramble, Guess how many M&M's in the baby bottle. We also played the clothes pin game, where everyone got a clothes pin and if you crossed your arms or legs and you got caught, whoever caught you got your clothes pin. If you caught someone you could take theirs. The one with the most pins won. And then we played the diaper game only no one knew it was a game. I made little diapers to wear as party favor pins. One unsuspecting guest had a "dirty" diaper. Diana won that one (of course). Diana's mom won the clothes pin game. Amanda, one of Diana's childhood friends won the word scramble. She had told us all that she was good at that game and she was going to win it and she did. Diana's grandmother won Baby Bingo and the baby bottle game. It was loads of fun.
After the baby shower, we got the boxing gloves out. Everyone loves playing with the boxing gloves. Here is Layla getting ready to box Uncle Gotty. Those of you on FaceBook, there is a video of Layla and Uncle Gotty boxing.
Layla and Maddie boxing. Maddie is like Uncle Gotty in that she laughs too much to box.
Last but certainly not least is Layla boxing with Daddy. She switched up gloves...she has the black ones and Wade is wearing pink. In less than a day, Rossi Jean will be here. I am so excited. I will post baby pictures as soon as I can tomorrow or Thursday. Thanks for taking the journey with me to Rossi's birth. It has been a fun journey and I'm sure it is going to be more fun in the future.

Layla and Uncle "Gotty" riding the train. Then it was off to ride the carousel. I kept cutting Scott's face off, so this is the best shot I have. Uncle Gotty, Layla and Daddy Wade.Layla and Daddy. She loves riding these but she always looks scared out of her mind, lol.Coming out a side door of the Christmas shop (my fav) you end up at the Rainforest Cafe. Layla wanted her picture taken with the elephant.Grampa Hut wanted a picture with Layla and his favorite daughter in law, Diana. Yeah I know, she's his only daughter in law right now, lol. But we do LOVE her.Layla was trying to get away and Uncle Gotty scooped her up.Oops, caught in the act.After walking downtown Disney we decided to grab a bite to eat at Fuddruckers. They have the most awesome hambergers (well next to 5 Guys). Here is Layla goofing around with Daddy's hat while we let our food settle.Layla going "Gansta"Scott and I leave our boxing gear in the truck. So the boys dug out the gloves and decided to have an impromtu boxing match in the parking lot. I have a small video of them boxing that I will be posting on FB. They laughed more than anything and I believe the match was a draw.
It was a fun night for all. We always enjoy the time we spend with Wade, Diana, Layla and Scott.

This is a song sung by Tex Ritter years ago. I remember my daddy playing it. I had a copy of the record but who knows where it is now. I love this and since I got it in an email today I thought I would share it with all of you. With the devastation in Haiti and our military being send overseas, I just feel like GOD needs to be more prominent in our lives.

This is the roof and hood of Liz's car in the yard this morning. Ice and thick frost. Could be snow.
9:00 am and icicles on the orange trees.
Not even the biggest icicle but it's pretty big. Yes that's my hand holding it. I picked it off the orange tree.Check out the ice on the ground around the small orange trees. This was about 11:00 am.
1:30 in the afternoon. The poor trees are still frozen. So what's all this hype about Global Warming? Someone refresh my memory, lol.
