People keep asking me when I'm due, and I can officially say "next month" now...can't believe how fast time has just flown right by. Ova and I joke about having to go back to buying diapers and wipes, and waking up at all hours of the night.... but really, it's no joke. Those wonderful times are soon approaching and it's time we really prepare ourselves again. We sometimes wonder how much life is going to change with this little one...not only because it's a little girl, but everyone tells us that going from one child to two isn't that different, but the difference between two children to three is HUGE..... One thing we know for sure, is we are super duper excited!
This past Saturday was a very special day for me, and for my little baby girl.... because my sisters (bless their hearts) put together a baby girl shower for me.... to be completely honest, I felt a little ackward having a shower since I already have kids, but I don't think they know how much I really really appreciate them for doing it, because we had nothing little girl in our house at all. They just invited a few people, pretty much first cousins or their wives.... it turned out so nice, and I was showered with a bunch of pretty pink girly things.... I just love my sisters, on both sides and hope they know how much I really love and appreciate them for always being there for me and my little family!
Tina was the shower photographer....and got some really good shots...
This is the delicious food they prepared...like usual, there was WAY TOO MUCH, but it was delicious and we ate all night long! Leslie and Marie decided to go with the fondue theme, and it was a huge success! One side of the table had the chocolate fondue fountain...with anything you could think of to dip in it.... strawberries, pretzels, bananas, strawberry flavored pink marshmellows, angel food cake peices, rice krispie treats.... it was so good!
On the other side of the table was the cheese fondue... oh my goodness, it was to die for! It was a spinch/artichoke/cheese dip and they had a variety of things to dip in it, like wheat bread peices, broccoli, crackers, pita bread, peices of ham...it was so good!
Then Tea/Alisi/Tina made some egg sandwiches, tarts, cookies, and banana bread... and it was all set up and decorated so nice!
Above is my little sister Marie, playing fun shower games...
