Something small and something big!
Okay we will!
Look at that spectacular wrapping job, complete with curled ribbons! Have you ever seen something so fancy arrive in the mail?
What we saw first! What a cool surprise. For those who aren't familiar with who this is from, these ladies from Regina and Craven are who I grew up around and spent each Lord's day with for the first 19 years of my life! They mean so much to me and to receive such an unexpected gift from them was so heartwarming.
Our surprise registering on our sleep deprived faces. :) Excuse my ghastly pallor lol. At this point we had read the directions but decided to "host the shower" the next morning when we were back at home and would have a couple of hours to spend on it. But as you can see, I couldn't help but dig around in the package a bit and play with some of the decorations!
We chose one gift to open, and it turned out to be an amazing choice! A handmade quilt made for The Little One by his very own Aunt Jolly. It's so incredibly soft on the back and the quilt has a really nice feel and weight to it. The fabrics are so fun and as you can tell I just love it!
Showing it off!
Back at home the next morning we dug into the box. In the bag that had the directions on the front of it, we found those cute goblets, chips and salsa, plates, drink mixes, umbrella straws and cheerful green napkins. We decided to unpack the entire box onto the table and go from there.
Part way through unpacking.
Look at all those colorful packages! We couldn't believe how many there were.
A blanket from Aunt LeAnne.
Look at the adorable Boxer puppy on top of that package! It's fun that Little One has a Boxer of his own.
"A Little Crabby"
Our own little Boxer- Petra! She laid here and watched in interest as we opened the packages - doesn't she look excited? ;)
Look at the spread! There were tons of packages filled with gluten-free goodies to eat and we munched to our hearts content. It was so good and such a treat as I don't usually buy things like gluten free Oreos!
Petra snoozing - she couldn't quite make it through the whole shower. :)
No Baby Shower is complete without someone spilling on themselves. I did the honors with a blob of salsa that dribbled itself down my shirt four times, bounced across the knee of my pants and landed with a splat on the floor. The aftermath is apparent in this photo.
Can you believe this photo? I mean... this is a large dining room table and it's covered!
The Little One showing you some of his gifts.
Thank you all so much for your hard work and generosity!
