Church shower gifts

After we unloaded all of the great shower gifts, we had to go to my neice's birthday party and we were there until 8pm that evening. Well, that included ice cream cake, Build A Bear, and then supper at Red Robin. So there was not any progress made on the sorting of the shower gifts on Saturday. Then after church on Sunday, we had lunch with my family to celebrate my brother-in-law's birthday, at Red Robin. Do you see a theme of where we eat when we go out to eat? So then it was nap time, and after the evening church service the goal was to begin to get the gifts sorted. We got it looking pretty good, but I have to admit that the ladies who hosted the shower already had it pretty well sorted. Thanks girls!!

We have all of the alike items in their own tote so throughout this week, my task is to go through each tote.

That is all for now, until then.

Baby Shower Extravagazna

I will have to say that very few times in my life have I ever been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and kindness from others towards me. Well, this is one of those times. This last Saturday was our church baby shower.
Here is my Mom, sister, neice, and Mother-in-Law.

Here are the ladies who hosted the shower, they are the best!!! This picture is missing Jeanine, but from left to right we have Mary Avery, Kacy, Erin, me, Lisa, Monica, Michelle, Kelly, and Berkli. What a spread of food!!!

Oh, and you can not forget the petit fours. My favorite, yum!!!

This is the gift table, before the shower began.

Here are the clothes that were in the some of those packages.
It took 2 minivans and my car to haul all of the gifts to my house. What a blessing this had been!! Thank you to all of you who were able to attend and thought of Jeremy and I enough to provide us such a nice shower.
That is all for now, until then.

Brandon's Nursery In progress

Good Morning everyone!!! Well, here is a little taste of Brandon's nursery. Jeremy and his mom came over and painted the walls. And then Jeremy finished up with the chair rail. I think they did a great job. And better yet I did not have to paint, I do not enjoy painting. The bedding is a kind of safari print with lions, elephants, zebras, and giraffes. We are still in need of a dresser to put all of Brandon's stuff.

That's all for now. Until then.
