But last week, was my sister-in-law's baby shower! It was so much fun! I never get to see her very much any more. She is due September 17th. I am soooooo very, very excited!
Okay, so I started this post yesterday, realized the laptop upstairs has all my pictures of the shower on it and it was not plugged in or on, so I couldn't get to my pictures to show them to you. So I quit. But now, I've prepared better. I plugged in the laptop and it's on, so I can get to my pictures on it from my computer in the basement and yippee! I can share them with you now. Also, while I am not 100% better yet, I do feel much better. I came home from church (I only went to church at all because I had to give the lesson in Primary) and pretty much slept from 1 until 6 pm. It was awesome. Even if I did get woken up by one of the kids bugging me once or twice. They still haven't learned that when dad is home, and mom is trying to rest, dad is perfectly capable of answering any and all of their questions. Especially ones regarding what they are going to have for dinner. I fear that day will never come. Well, okay. I don't really fear it. More like I've accepted that it is a basic truth of my reality. I just don't like it. Not one bit. I often scream at them, "WHY CAN'T YOU JUST LET ME SLEEEEEEEEEEP!?" in my head. Out loud it's not really that intense.
These are basically all of the pictures I took at the shower which is really not like me. Usually I take more, but I needed a new battery for my camera (It came in the mail a few days ago, and it's like my camera is new again. I'm so in love!), and I got distracted by talking to people. You know, being social and all that.
This is the card I made her. I found the idea on Pinterest and it is sooooo stinking cuuuuuute!
My aunts and cousin. She's having a baby, too! :)
My mom's cousin's wife, my aunt, and my cousin.
Grandma, Lili's mom, & the guest of honor.
She's so fun to have around.
What! What is a boy doing at a baby shower? Those are for girls!
He he. Kaleb said he wanted to come. I said it probably wouldn't be that fun for him. I think he disagrees.
My mom. Trying not to look at the camera.
We played one game where we had to guess the cost of a bunch of baby items. I lost horribly. Then we ate. Then there were presents! :)
Lili's mom gave her this awesome vintage card.
And also was able to find black t-shirts and jeans for the baby. So he can look just like his dad. :)
"Do you know how hard it is to find those in all the sizes that I found them!?" She agonized.
I gave her some adorable onesies and a cute pair of jean shorts. Michele and I also went in on a gift. I wrapped it and then started talking to her after she opened it. I forgot to take a picture of her while she was opening it.
But this is what it was. It's so cute! I loved mine when I had a crawler. I could put him in there and make dinner or take a quick shower. It was the best thing ever! I wish I could give one to all the new moms.
