Today Sonja and I threw a baby shower at church for Susie and Lily. It was lots of fun to make decorations, make her quilt, play games and visit with the ladies from church. And of course it's always fun to look at all the cute little baby things!
Sonja made delicious mini-cheesecakes!
JD got a new ball from Aunt Sandy
Dena and Lily
Judy and Elaina made this pretty scrapbook frame
I made a couple of bibs with the extra quilt fabric
Yesterday was a very busy birthday for Chris. He started it out by sleeping in, having breakfast and opening presents. Two of his gifts he bought himself and the other was too big to wrap. I hope it wasn't too anticlimatic. (it was 51 in the morning when we woke up)
a new watch (that he bought for himself on sale the day before)
Guess what it is Dad!
new slippers he bought for himself at an after-Christmas sale
(yes, I am feeling kind of lame now)
In the afternoon, Chris and I met for lunch at the hotel downtown. We had a nice quiet date and enjoyed the break in our busy day. (it was rainy, windy and 46 when I walked to the hotel)
Unfortunately, I wasn't thinking clearly and scheduled a parish ed board meeting for the evening. Duh! And then, praise team practice went late... Not exactly a fun way to spend your birthday. (on the way to church the temp dropped 3 degrees to 36!)
But it got better when we got home. Since it had snowed we went in the hottub, we love the hot tub in the snow! Then we had milk and giant chocolate chip cookie! Yum! (when we got home there was already snow on the ground)
Thanks for stopping by our blog. Please leave a comment, we'd love to know you stopped by.
