Shower Snaps

We showered my daughter Sarah (and baby on board, Jack) with celebratory gifts and good friends and food on this Sunday last. Thought I'd share a few pictures of the festivities.Here's Sarah, acting like a game show hostess showing off her gifts. Cute little bump huh?
With help from her nieces, she begins to open the baby loot. As much as Sarah hates it - we touch her tummy - that's me, Sarah and my youngest daughter, Abbie.

This is my mom (the baby's Great Grandmother) with Sarah and her sister Abbie. Thanks to everyone for all the well wishes, the wonderful boy toys and amazing baby wear!

  • It’s been awhile since I posted such randomness as a Fun Fact Friday – so I thought I’d give it a gander. Bear with my randomness.

    *I have a smidge of poison ivy – where I contacted that I’ll never know. It’s a few tiny dots, much like the period at the end of this sentence. Makes me itch like a crazed maniac that tiny little speck.
    *Does anyone miss regular old fashioned handsets to telephones? The size alone is better for tucking under your chin/shoulder for multi-tasking during the conversation. The tiny new phones are more apt to “chin hang up” and dropping into sink or toilet, don’t ya think?
    *A few weeks ago I stumbled upon a blog that featured a talented card-maker, and she had a giveaway contest. I won! This wonderfully talented creator can be found here. Stop by and visit her will you?
    *I’m irked to no end this week with stupid human tricks. Hence I’m in my office with the door shut. Shielding the people. All people, from my irked wrath.
    *This weekend I am hosting a baby shower for my eldest daughter – first baby, truly a miracle. I’m probably just as excited as she is. If not more.
    *Can I go home now?
    *I need to up date this blogs “places I wander” list. Much of the bloggers I used to read have ceased blogging. I’m finding that more and more, it’s probably related to lurking and non-commenters.
    *I am a lover of all comments. Except for those in spam or non English speaking. I do not speak Japanese. Just thought you all should make note.
    *No vacation plans in the works for this summer. Really. Although I could use an adventure.
    *Any suggestions?
    *I’m ending the randomness now – so you can dash out and read other blogs that haven’t been updated in nearly a month or so.
    *Wait that’s me.

So very darn glad it's FRIDAY everyone, I am so tired I can hardly type. Comments on the header are welcome.
