|Two wonderful friends from high school threw a shower for us in Topeka!|
Such yummy food!
|So many cute decorations, thanks to this talented, creative lady!|
|A special gift from the neighbors who where there for my parents when both my brother and I were born. |
They gave Q a big baby bottle bank when he was born, so this was a nostalgic gift.
|My brother and sis-in-law know my hubby all too well! ☺|
|A most special gift from my jr. high/high school band director's wife.|
(Yes, this one evoked a couple tears.)
|Of course, my mom found a cat book!|
|Such a special gift from my BFF - a beautiful handwritten wall-hanging for the nursery.|
(It's a Bible verse! Joshua 1:9)
|2/5 of the family I baby-sat for for several years from jr. high - college. That super-grown-up young lady in the middle was the last true newborn who had been in my care regularly! So...|
|...I'm thankful this pretty lady helped provide a newborn refresher course a few months ago! ☺|
Love this sweet new mama!
|Our Lincoln(area) family threw us a shower, as well!|
|I couldn't get over the bow-tie forks. So cute, right?!|
|The amazing baker/decorator of the delicious cookies - and a wonderful friend! ☺|
|"The three best friends..."|
|This guest book became an adorable wall-hanging!|
|This hand-made decoration got to come home with us to find a spot in the nursery, as well!|
|Such a sweet, cozy quilt from one of my very-talented aunts!|
|We were overwhelmed by the generosity shown to us and our son!|
(The guests brought books instead of cards!)
|One of my students got in on the celebration!|
|Other students had kind notes for me.|
|Our church family blessed us with an absolutely adorable (and fun!) shower. |
Several ladies came together to make it a really enjoyable morning with lots of delicious (and cute) treats!
|This was melted chocolate...as were the messes in 7 other diapers. |
The goal was to try to guess what candy bar each was!
|Little baby leg warmers!|
|A most perfect outfit!|
|Homemade hot fudge favors!|
(For the record, we'd received some of this for Christmas, as well, and it was definitely something I'd partaken of during pregnancy. Needless to say, I was very excited to receive a refill! ☺)
|Even though we're not right next door, anymore, our former neighbors continue to bless and support us.|
What a sweet surprise this hand-knit afghan was!
Everything has continued to go smoothly with this pregnancy. We're down to weekly check-ups, now - hard to believe it's gone so fast! Thank you for all your love and support, whether it be cards, gifts, words of encouragement, helpful hints and advice, and/or prayers! It takes a village, and we're so glad you're part of ours. ☺
As usual, thanks for reading. We'll see if I get any more posts in before this baby makes his entrance! ☺
