Barbie Becomes a Grandmother!

One of my Dirt Diva Friends (we all used to work with high school youth at our church ...therefore we have gone through A LOT together and gone a lot of places....long story short...) anyway.... Connie became a grandmother for the first time.... thus a party.... Barbie had to be aged ... note the highlight foil in her hair and she has roots...they don't show up well. Of course, Barbie ages really well....she has some extra lumpiness under her towel now though!!!!!
Book for the Grandmother on things we think a grandmother should do.
I did the doll. Melinda altered the tub area with handrails (potty is mounted above in the box with a handrail) and the towel rack became a walker! Click on this one to see it larger for sure!
Connie and Lori checking out the walker. Garland hanging has the baby name on one side and photos she has emailed us constantly on the other side.
The cupcakes were made by Olga and have picks in them that Lori assembled for me with the sonogram picture!
Nancy couldn't be with us as her husband was still in the hospital recovering from kidney cancer surgery. He's coming home today! PTL! He's doing great!

Congratulations, Connie! You are entering the best time of your life because grandbabies are the absolute BEST! Seriously! You also have a great group of friends who assembled a knock out party for you!
