HTC held a wonderful baby shower for us on Thursday. The food was delicious and the decorations were adorable! We received many gifts that were very much needed including a high chair, a cradle swing and home safety items.
We truly appreciate all the love and support everyone has shown to us with the anticipated arrival of Baby Peyton.
My Aunts Cindy and Virginia and my cousin’s wives Karen and Melanie threw a baby shower for Jen in Cheraw on Saturday. There are a lot of people there that we haven’t seen in a long time. It was really great to see everyone. We received a lot of very generous gifts from everyone. We received a lot of very nice outfits, as well as a lot of necessities – like diapers! We have lots of photos to be developed, so those will be posted as soon as… 🙂
Here are a few photos…
Jen had quite a surprise yesterday. All of the folks at her work did a great job planning a surprise baby shower for her during lunch. I got a call early in the week from Kendra, Jen’s co-worker, to invite me to be there as part of the surprise. And it was a big surprise for Jen. When we walked in, everyone yelled surprise and she disappeared back in the hallway. She didn’t know what to do with herself.
They had arranged lunch for everyone from Donzelle’s. They also had a cake… We’ll have to load photos soon. We all ate together and then Jen was able to open her gifts. We received a bottle warmer and Winney the Pooh clothes set, a few other outfits, a bath-time set, a Vera Bradley diaper bag, a couple stuffed animals and rattles, a handmade blanket, and a quilt made from Ecospun (which is made from recycled soda bottles…). That is our baby’s first recyclable… 🙂
Jen’s boss, Ester, also made her a shower hat from all of the bows and tissue paper from the gits for good luck. We have to get a photo of that online soon.
