In the past two weeks... - Behind the Camera and Dreaming

In the past two weeks...

Wednesday, September 21, 2011


I’ve been working on thank you cards for all the gifts we’ve received over the past few weeks and have been kind of emotional...how do you really thank someone for being a part of your life and being a part of your child’s life before he is even born? There are so many people who have just simply outpoured love to us over the past few months and a thank you card just doesn’t seem like enough. . .

We had a wonderful shower two weeks ago and got SO MANY things for Jonah...we are beyond blessed!

It took us forever to open all the gifts! We got so many great things! Who knew a baby needs so much?!? =)
Then, Saturday we had another shower (co-ed) at our new house with so many of our wonderful friends. It was truly the best time I've had in a long time. My sister, Andrea, made most of the decorations for both showers and my mom really helped me out by CLEANING my whole house before we had people over! It was a GREAT night! =) I can't say thank you enough to everyone who was a part of it!

I didn't take THAT many pictures because I was having such a good time just hanging out. I missed some of the VERY cute details. You can see some bits and pieces of our new house in some of the photos here too.
 
my belly is getting HUGE!

check out the but mason jar glasses everyone used! Mine's filled with iced tea!

Andrea and Maggie made the cute banner for the previous shower and just cute it down to use in different parts of the house for this shower! I'll be keeping it too for future birthday parties?


MORE PRESENTS! So many more cute things!!
Can anyone guess what The Hollys got us??? hint it's sticking out of that big yellow bag! =)

The past few weeks have been a lot of work, but I have really had an amazing time preparing for a baby boy's arrival. There is just a little more shopping to do, but really I think we are well prepared...as far as supplies are concerned anyway!

I have a collage of the nursery almost done ready to post...stay tuned!
Also, more pictures to come later in the week.

  4. Looks like so much fun, and such great memories. They did a beautiful job of putting your showers together! Glad you got good stuff! ;) I didn't take photos at my showers, and I reallly wish I had! The ones I got from the people who did are (hmmm... shall I try to be nice?) not great, haha. There, I said it ;) But it is the thought that counts!

I love the communication and connections one simple comment on a blog can bring. Lifetime friendships are formed, grown, and flourished in this little box. So, basically the pressure is on ;)
