We have been working hard over the past few weeks getting the house ready for a child (I'm trying not to say much about him...but it's just so hard....I'll give you this, he's going to be home by Spring, and he's about 18 months old now).
Over the past few weeks, we have cleaned out almost every room in the house...this is my favorite! (Thanks Meme and Big Al for the bedding!!)
We've also had lots of help preparing for our new little addition. We had our first baby/toddler shower on December 5 in Walker, Louisiana, at Jace's cousin's house. Below are a few pictures from this wonderful party.
Cute dishes from the Sheltons...so sweet. And the quilt was made espeically for our little man by his Aunt Carla (or Carly as he will call her...I'm not certain on that spelling, so feel free to correct me).
The Baby Jogger. Oh yes...I don't have to give up my running thanks to the best in-laws on the planet.
Both of our parents decided to give us used gifts at the shower....Jace's parents passed down a cute pair of rubber boots, and my parents passed down a handmade blanket.
The invitation for the party asked the guests to sign their favorite childrens book. What a wonderful idea! I got lots of books!
Unfortunately, I don't remember who made the cake (if someone else remembers, leave a comment...give a shoutout!). It was so cute! And VERY tasty!
The Hostesses! Katie (with Katherine), Stephanie, and Tricia.
One of our little guys Great Grandmothers, Abbah.
The Grandmothers...Meme (my mom) and Nan (Jace's mom).
My mom and younger sister, Mitzi, drove down from North Louisiana after the snow storm (they left at around 4am to make the party). I have a great family!
