Shower Time

I have great friends.

On Monday, my local friends showered us with gifts and well wishes for the Peanut. I am embarrassed that it's taken me this long to write about it. Except everything seems to take a little longer these days. Part of the deal I guess. Barbara hosted the shower at her house WAY out in the country :) and it was really fun.

We played games.... one where you had to sniff the contents of diapers and guess what kind of candy bar it was.....some people couldn't get past the appearance.

And another one where you had to guess what flavor baby food was in jars just from looking at the outside with no label.

We had tasty snacks. Notice the ladybug cupcakes. The whole party had a ladybug theme.

And everyone was more than generous to us and the Peanut.

Matching dresses for Ellie and the Peanut from GranJan.

We even got to enjoy out of town company for the shower. My mom and both of my grandmothers were able to come for the weekend.

They were glad to meet everyone and see that I really do have people that will hang out with me.

And they got to spend time with Ellie (which of course is why they really came) and helped me get some things organized around the house to get ready for October. There is still plenty to do so if anyone out there is really bored and wants to sort onesies and tiny socks, just let me know. First you'll have to get them out of the attic for me. I don't think I can even fit through the door. heehee not really. But, seriously, look at this thing!



Here's my thought: you have awesome friends because you are an awesome person!!!!!

You all look so pretty! I'm sorry I couldn't be there! And if I could, I would come retrieve stuff from the attic and sort tiny socks with you!

Oh- sorry I couldn't be there too. It looks like a lot of fun and I am guessing that diaper you are holding had melted snickers in it!!??
