Shower Time . . .

I'm going to busy this week preparing for Ethan's baby shower we're having on Sunday, the 18th. The shower will be at our house so I've got a lot to do. Kari's mom & sister are also helping with the party. Can't believe that we only have to wait just about 6 more weeks to meet little Ethan. I'm so excited!!

I pulled out a few things that I kept from Bobby's baby days. I think they'll be nice decorating touches to sit out.


I have a few pieces of wallpaper from Bobby's nursery that I want to make something with for Ethan's room. Not sure exactly what I'll do, but I do have a few ideas. Whatever I come up with I'll display it at the shower for decorations.



Four crocheted blankets, the blue one is mine.


Here's a closeup of my blanket & baby shoes.

I love this picture of Bobby in his first pair of jeans!
I'll be showing more ideas for the shower all week long. Hope you all have a wonderful week!

I bet you are so excited. :) Don't you just feel so reminiscent? I'm looking forward to your good ideas.

wow, how cool is that? I love all those things you have. The wallpaper is really special. All the things I've had from my children are now given to them. Well the twins arent--but my sons are.

What a fun way to spend your week!

Babies are such a gift.

I love that you are paying attention to the details and the memories they represent.

Love visiting your blog. It's 70+ here in Arizona and I get just the slightest chill watching the snow fall on your blog! Thanks for a great post.
