Getting Ready for Baby Scarlet~ A Country Western Baby Shower | Personal

Talk about a spoiled little girl. Baby Scarlet isn’t even here yet, and she is so loved and adored by so many family and friends.  Mike’s brother Zachary and his wife Brittany are expecting their first baby in December, Scarlet Lorraine.  I just love her name.  It is so beautiful and southern and both maternal great-grandmothers are named Lorraine. Family names are so special. She will also be the first granddaughter on both sides and the first grandchild on Brittany’s side. She will be a spoiled little princess.

We were so happy to have Zach and Brittany in Virginia, they live in Kansas, for 2 whole weeks. We got to spend a lot of time with them and Steven got to bond with his Uncle Zach for the first time.  The last time Zach saw Steven, he was one month old.  Shortly after that he was deployed to Afghanistan.

Zach and Brittany are both into hunting, fishing and being outside. Scarlet will probably be a tomboy and even got her first fishing pole and tackle and camping gear.  Pink camo will probably be her favorite color!

Family and friends gathered at my in-laws home in Virginia Beach to shower Zach and Brittany and Baby Scarlet.  Brittany’s family even traveled from Vermont to be at the shower.  There was so much love and excitement.  Now we just have to wait for the redneck princess to arrive.  We can’t wait to meet you Baby Scarlet!!!

A few of the decorations at the shower. I love pinterest!!!

They had to practice dressing the baby blindfolded. I think they should have tried on one of the real babies there! 🙂

The cake I made. I was pretty proud of it, although it wasn’t perfect. First time doing this rose pattern and basket weave.


I couldn’t believe Steven just let them put these ties on him.  He seemed to like the attention. What a ham!


The Zebrowski boys! Uncle Zachary, Mike and Steven.


Liam and his mom Anna.

Working on sign language.  Signing for “cookie” and “thank-you”.

Love, love, love. This melts my heart!
