Isn't it precious? Then everyone at the shower drew a theme for a baby scrapbook page. One person did 'Welcome to the World', one did 'Welcome Home', etc. So now I have a scrapbook filled with the cutest pages made with love by my friends. All I have to do is add Little One's pictures! Here are some of the pages:
My cousin made this one for Little One's First Bath Picture. I thought it was so cute!
My five-year-old niece made this page - it's my favorite! It's got her name right in the middle of it!
This is my niece, by the way. Isn't she precious? I love her! I miss all of my nieces and nephews so much! That's her one-year-old sister in the background. Also precious! Addy has red hair and blue eyes - WOW - stunning!
So, back to the shower. I thought the scrapbook idea was really cool and very beneficial to me since I have never done a scrapbook - now I have one ready-made! But the best part was getting to see all of my Ohio friends. I didn't get to spend nearly enough time with them, but it was still wonderful! Below is a picture of Bobbie Jo and Sheri. I met them 17 years ago at a summer job and I love them both dearly! Sheri has three little ones and since she is done having them, she gave me her crib! How wonderful is that? It is so nice and it matches the bed that we already had in Little One's room! We're thrilled. Bobbie Jo and Sheri are standing next to a Christmas tree decorated with baby toys that I got to take home with me! How great is that???
This is the cake we had. It was yummy and so pretty. The picture matched the shower invitation and the bakery added 'A Little Piece of Heaven is on its Way...'
I got lots of wonderful gifts like this diaper bag from my two sisters-in-law. I love it! I had tried to find a pretty diaper bag that could be neutral and I hadn't found it yet. This was perfect. My cousin also got a tan Eddie Bauer diaper bag for Jory to carry. He loved it!
All in all, it was a wonderful time! I really, really enjoyed it.
