Such a Sweet Shower
I have wonderful friends. They are sweet, loving, thoughtful, talented ladies. I thank God for them. And after seeing them this weekend, back at 'home," I miss them.
But even though I had to leave once again, it was proven to me that no matter what, they will be in my life, especially for the most important things. Like the blessing of a new baby (girl.) They were kind enough to host and attend a wonderful baby shower and truly showered me and the baby with love and pretty things.
Aren't they all gorgeous? I even got to see my friend Teri's little girl Taylor (bottom right) who I hadn't seen since she was a "wittle" baby! She's SO cute!
So, you saw that I mentioned 'talented' above right?
Yeah, they are GOOD. In the playgroup I was in before moving, we are all scrapbookers and even though most of them have converted to digital scrapbooking, they reverted back to their 'old school' ways and made one for me. It's tradition for everyone to get a scrapbook filled with already completed pages and because I joined the group after Little G was born I didn't get one until now. Isn't it beautiful??
There's the first page on the right. With a little hint at the baby's name. But I'm not blogging it yet. And for those of you who are privileged enough to know, well just consider yourself extra special! ; )
Also, Tim's grandmother hand-painted a beautiful Noah's Ark night light but it's currently lit up in the baby room (where Little G still sleeps) so I will have to post a picture of it another time. It's so wonderful and is a cherished gift.
All in all the shower was fabulous but too short. I wish I could have spent ALL afternoon visiting with my friends and eating cake... But then, who doesn't??
I also have some shopping to do thanks to those who gifted me with gift cards. Oh and I have several crafty type things to finish to complete the baby's room. And there's some other necessities to stock up on. And well, Little G kinda needs a bed so he can move out of her room and in with brother.
Apparently there's a lot to do in about 6 weeks! Tim.... oh Tim... where are you dear???
Oh yeah, my Tim who took care of the boys while I was gone and mopped floors, did laundry and dishes, all yesterday. He's THE man. My man.
Anywho, thanks to my friends for the shower, to my MIL and C & C (my friends who know who they are...) for chauffeuring me around all weekend and to my Tim for holding down the fort. I am truly blessed. As is our little girl.
P.S. First Day of Kindergarten today for The B Man! I'll let y'all know how it goes (of course!!)
