Baby Shower!

The baby shower was yesterday and it was so much fun! I am probably about 10 times more excited now that I have so much "stuff" for the baby. I got so many nice things, now I just need a place to put it all. :) We had it at a river-front park in a gazebo. The Lord gave us a beautiful day! But the wind was blowing our decorations down, so we gave up on the balloons. Here are a few pictures:

My pastor's wife from my teen years (and mother of 6) gave a very precious devotion.


I thought this was a very impressive wrapping job!

Thank you for taking pictures, Rachel!

It's good to have Jamin home. He got back around 1:30 Friday night. I kinda' fell asleep before he got back, but it's so nice to be together again! Last night he took me on a date. We went to Ruby Tuesday's for a great meal, then did a little shopping. It was a lot of fun. I love dates! Tomorrow we're going with my mom to get a rocking chair for me and the baby. That's Mom and Dad's gift for us. I'm so excited! We're getting a very nice glider with an ottoman...cozy! Thanks for reading my ramblings!

Looks like it was a great day for you! Wish you would have had a picture of you standing up so we could see how the baby is growing with you. :-)

I was just thinking, have you talked to Jec Reid Garrett? I know you guys were close....do you still keep in touch?

What a fun idea to have a baby shower outside. Now, that you have the "stuff" it makes having a baby more real! How exciting!

How fun! My shower was over 8 years ago and I still remember it vividly! Such a sweet time in life. You are soon going to say, "What did we do before Jackson was born." You just won't be able to imagine life without him! What a wonderful miracle. I am very excited for you!

Hey, I loved my baby shower with both... Micaiah's was a big church one and Zechariah was just close friends... It really hits you that you will have someone else to take care of when you receive all the stuff they need. They are a true blessing from God... Hope everything is going well with the pregnancy and the move.
