Let it rain! Or should I say shower?
This weekend I was "showered" once again by friends and family, this time in Lake Park at my aunt Peggy's house. Peggy, my sister in law Delayne and good friend Mindi (aka party planner extraordinaire) planned such a fun day filled with food, gifts and many, many laughs.
Most of those laughs came from the games we played which included the game My Water Broke! Tiny plastic babies were frozen into ice cubes - the goal of the game was to see who would get their baby out first. My mother's cousin Linda was our winner- although she won by throwing her baby into her coffee! :) Linda was also announced as the next woman to get pregnant! You see- as I was opening gifts Mindi stopped me at gift number 7 and had me open an envelope which read- tradition says that the woman who gives the seventh gift will be the next to become pregnant! We all got a good laugh out of that prediction.
It is unbelievable the number of gifts that we received - I am quite surprised Kevin and I were able to squeeze it all into our small Honda. Our living room and nursery are filling up with the generous gifts we have been given. Did I mention yet that each guest was asked to bring a book (or two or three in some cases) that started with a certain letter of the alphabet. We have a small library started for the baby! We are very thankful to be receiving so many wonderful and useful things for the baby. Here are some pictures from the day- thank you all for being there and making it so wonderful!
