These three mamas in our church are expecting within five weeks of each other!
Last Friday our church hosted a triple baby shower for these new little blessings and their families.
Daddy welcomes the guests
Our grandmother, Mama Flo, is excited about her 1st great-grandson, due in just 6 weeks!

The Gift Tables
Our first game to play was a race to see whose baby could be dressed the fastest. Ten people seated to the right of each mother were given one piece of clothing to put on the baby, using only ONE hand. Once their piece was on they had to pass it to the next person. The first Mama to receive a fully dressed baby was the winner!

Will, Hope, Mr. and Mrs. Poole

The Foot Game!
The children took off their shoes and lined up behind the curtain
to see if their mothers could recognize their feet!
David and Houston held up the curtain.
It was so funny to watch the mothers getting down to inspect their children's feet! :)

Cathi was in charge of the last game. The parents of the new babies were asked questions (mostly about their last baby) then had to write their answers on their white boards. If both mother and father got the same answer they got a point!
The Farrises won even though it has been 6 years since their last baby! :)

Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
