Cowboy Baby Shower

Looking for ideas for a boy baby shower? This Cowboy Baby Shower is perfect for a little buckaroo! Decorations, food and game ideas are all included in this cute shower theme.  Have your guests wear something denim for this party. Decorate with burlap, denim, plaids, bandannas, and you’ve got a memorable shower for a little cowboy!  

This shower was given by my friend, Vicki.  I’m sharing her cute ideas along with adding some game ideas for this theme, too!

Don’t limit this just to a little boy, but change the colors to denim and pink and this would work just as well for a little cowgirl!

Vicki found the  denim pennants on a clearance rack and add the red-checked letters of the newborn boy! How quick and easy to do making a nice keep-sake for the new baby’s room.

Cute paper plates and napkins add to the cowboy atmosphere. Also, use stuffed horses or a rocking horse for more cowboy decorations.

Now for some game ideas….

Cowboys round-up “little doggies”  so a match game of baby animal names would fit.  Here’s a site with all the names of baby animals  to use for your match game.   www.zooborns   A smaller list is available for printing at www.baby-shower.com

Other cowboy related games are found on www.grandparentsplus.com/western-game-ideas.  These are ideas I used with my grandchildren for our camp, but the Snake in the Boot game would work for a shower game, too. Substitute the snake with a baby item! If you don’t have a cowboy boot, use a cowboy hat and stand at a distance to throw the pacifier or other baby item in it. Give 3 tries and see who has the best score!

If you would like to create your own game of interesting cowboy terms, go to www.lemen.com

For prizes, give bags of Trail Mix!

Winter Sunset

Most of the beautiful sunsets occur during the summer with the gorgeous colors mirrored across the lake. However, this winter sunset was awesome with the patterns on the ice. I had to take a picture and show that winter can be beautiful, too.

This is the view out our great-room window! We never tire of the beauty of God’s world around us!

This is not my usual post, but thought I’d share.

Thanks for viewing and Happy New Year!

Amazing Sunsets

Amazing Sunsets

We are fortunate to live on a small lake facing west. During the summer, we see some Amazing Sunsets! Each one is completely different. Even though it is take from our same yard, the colors, clouds, and water change to paint a different picture every time. (By the way, these are not color enhanced!)

 Some pictures are from my deck and some are from the beach area. I just love to see a beautiful sunset! Only God, our Creator,  can paint a picture so different and beautiful every time! On the picture above, the tall, stately, White Pines silhouette this amazing sunset! This was so short-lived.  Five minutes later, it was gone.

For the one above, I zoomed and focused across the lake. Those storm clouds turned into objects of beauty with the sun’s power.

 

Here’s another of pinks and blues….

Quite different with grays and orange!

The next one shows clouds that seem laced in pink!

We’re not the only place that enjoys beautiful sunsets. I took this picture during our visit to the Puget Sound in Washington. There’s a sliver of the moon showing across the water.

Back at home again…..

The sunset this night didn’t start too spectacular, but…….

the clouds moved and displayed the sun’s rays!

These next 3 shots I sent to a local news station and they made the news that night.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen the sun’s rays like they were this night. The clouds suddenly had a silver lining!

And finally fading away…..

The next two pictures were taken about 10 minutes apart.  At first, it looked like this…..

Later it changed to look like this…..

Another evening, it looked like this….

It seems that when there are  clouds in the sky at sunset, the sun does magic with them! Sort of like our lives…sometimes there are “grey clouds”, but God can do “magic” at making our lives beautiful again through Jesus Christ, our Lord! It reminds me of the song, “Something Beautiful”.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIfdDLXuuUg

I was just finishing this post and looked out the window at this Amazing Sunset! I had to include it!
