My Sister's Crista's Baby Shower - Black Friday

My sister and her husband Michael are having a baby in January. They chose not to know the sex of the baby. My mom and 4 other sisters threw her a baby shower. I was the only guy invited. I'm from a large Irish/Italian Family. We have 7 kids, and my Aunt Chris, on the far left, has 7 daughters. My mom is in the center in blue, and 4 of my sisters are in this photo. (Everyone in this picture is over 40, for two girls, can you tell which ones? 40+ doesn't look like your Edith Bunkers 40+ anymore!!) My mom and my niece Ella. My nieces Nicole and Kelsey My sister Crista with 5 of my 9 nieces and nephews.Crista might be mad that I included this personal photo, but it's really special. The matriarch of our family, Grandmom L always knitted baby clothes for each of her 12 granddaughters first born child. As soon as Crista opened the box she realized who the special hand knitted sweater and blanket were from, Grandmom L, who had died in 2003 at the age of 93.I think it's gonna be a girl. In fact I had a dream a few months back that my grandmother L. told me it would be a girl.
