JoAnne's Baby Shower

We all crossed our fingers that Jo Anne would not go into labor until after her baby shower, and thankfully, we met that goal! We had a beautiful baby shower filled with food, family and friends! A big thank you to Marie and Nancee for all of their hard work and contributions. My job was easy with those two around! Not to mention all the other Vertin sisters and my mother.......... Jo and Bob should be good to go with all their new baby gifts..... Congratulations to Jo Anne and Bob! May you have a beautiful, healthy baby girl!

Thanks for sharing your pictures of the was great to see everyone and Joanne looks wonderful! I'm so sorry I had to miss it, but it looks like Jo got tons of stuff and you had a houseful! We will wait anxiously to hear how everything goes for them and hope the baby can hang on for a few more weeks!!! Sally

Thank you Carolyn and Brian for sharing your beautiful home and hospitality with all of us. You did a awesome job! It is so nice to be able to see family memebers again that we have not seen in awhile.

Make sure Brian sends my mom the Elvis video to my Mom. That was the highlight of the day!

Thanks again,
Anne (Vertin) Portinen

I am so happy we had such a great turn out of people for Jo's shower. It was great to see everyone and it was such a fun day! We know it's hard for everyone to make it, especially the out of towners....that is always tough! Hope these pictures help you to feel as if you were there! Thank YOU to everyone!
