Shana Fickes honored at baby shower
Shana Fickes, wife of Todd Fickes, of Iota was honored with a baby shower on March 1, at 2 p. m. at the home of Keith and Summer Smith, also of Iota.
The honoree is the daughter of Patrick and Chris LeJeune of Iota and the father-to-be is the son of Romona Thibodeaux of Scott and Bret Fickes of New Jersey.
Serving as hostesses were Amanda Stewart, Lori Sattler, Michelle Simar, Brooke Hebert, Summer Smith, Diana Gotte, Katie Hebert, Amanda Fruge’ Cherie Bouterie, Hannah LeJeune, Noelle Thomas, Andrea Poff, Lydia Hebert, Shawnee Crochet and Kelly Hardy.
On her special day, the honoree wore a black and white flowered dress paired with black tights.
Her mother’s attire consisted of a yellow top and khaki pants, while the father-to-be’s mother wore a green shirt with a pair of jeans.
The Smith home was decorated with photo’s of the mother-to-be’s belly and flowers. Guest were seated at tables covered with baby themed quilts while they enjoyed refreshments that included brownies, chips and dip, cookies, fruit and vegetable trays, sandwiches, red velvet cake and punch.
Guest were asked at sign-in to write down their guess of the baby’s gender and weight. They were also given a candle to bring home and burn while the mother-to-be is in labor. This is thought to bring good luck and a safe delivery of the awaited baby.
Approximately 70 guest attended, traveling from Crowley, Scott, Lafayette, Eunice, Baton Rouge and Plaquemine.
Special guest were Emily Hebert and Thor Stewart, godchildren of honoree and Amanda Stewart, godmother of expected baby.

They await the arrival of their little bundle of joy on April 7.
