Baby Shower for Aunt Leigh

28 Apr


We hosted a baby shower for Aunt Leigh this weekend and it was fun times for everyone. Again, I totally failed in the picture department but I was busy setting up, hosting and enjoying all the company.

More food.


Dad and Kathy stopped by here en route to South Dakota (not the most direct route but it was all for a good cause) and we got to spend time with them this weekend too. Plus, Buddy and Miss S got to meet and play in the backyard. Buddy is going to be in for a shock the next time he comes to visit and Miss S is much bigger.


Mom came prepared to the shower with gifts for Miss H 🙂 The highlight was the new paint set and after the festivities were over, she made many paintings on the front walk. It was a great lesson in mixing colors and what colors you can make with only a few of the basics.


Today, we went to see Aunt Leigh (and Uncle Chip’s) new house this weekend. Miss H loved throwing the ball off the deck and kicking it around their big yard.



All in all, a great weekend for a baby shower, family, friends and fun!


Shower, Party, Date Night and More Weekend Adventures

8 Aug


Between Miss H’s gymnastics class, a baby shower, a birthday party, our monthly ‘date night,’ a trip to the farmer’s market, a visit from Grandmom, another party and just the other usual weekend activities- we were all worn out by Sunday evening.

I forget my camera as I was rushing out of the house to get to the baby shower but I did get an iPhone photo of the fun gifts! A group of us went in together for a jogging stroller so our was the big yellow and green box 🙂

While I was heading home from the baby shower, Miss H and Kerry were heading to our neighbor’s first birthday. Miss H was so excited for the ‘bounce bounce house’ and the yummy food. All the kids were great and it was fun to celebrate the big birthday.

The second greatest thing about the party was her new ‘necklace.’

Miss H was really easy on her babysitter Saturday night and we enjoyed dinner, a movie and ice cream. When we got home, we heard about how Miss H was very entertaining with baking cookies, playing with Play Dough and coloring. We were happy that she got her to go to bed with no problems and looking forward to having her back soon! Miss H thought she was coming back on Sunday so it must have been fun.

Mom came to visit on Sunday and was quickly drawn into playing with the Holiday Inn. This toy relic was mine when I was Miss H’s age so yes, it is more than an antique. Mom has not only held onto the motel but the people, cars, luggage, beds, dining room tables, chairs and the dog. There is a revolving door, a front desk, and a buffet table too!

Mom was trying to get some pictures of Miss H playing with the motel but Miss H just wanted to see the screen on the back of the camera. ‘I want to see me!’ I guess she knows all the pictures are of her.

Mom and I headed out for a while and Miss H and Kerry caught up on golf and things around the house. Plus, Miss H got prepared for football season.

Miss H can now enthusiastically cheer on with ‘Go Vikings!’ and ‘TENNESSEE!” We need to work on some other teams but Kerry is very happy with her support of his teams.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
