A 1 year old on Easter

We then went to Great Aunt Kit and Uncle Dennis' Country Club for a lavished Easter Brunch. This is where JJ was greeted by Mr. Bunny, the balloon guy, more eggs, a room designated just for desserts and a great buffet. It is always nice to spend time with family, surrounded with love, great food, and wonderful conversation. Especially for JJ, because he is the only baby on this side of the family. This means he gets a whole lot of ATTENTION:)
It was then time to go home, for naptime...for the whole family after eating so so good. With only 3 weeks left before JoElle arrives we had some more preparing to do on this Easter Sunday( getting the bassinet, bouncer, clothes, and room ready)!

Thank you Jesus for dying and rising for us. It is because of you that we can enjoy a life full of joy and completion in you.

Tea Party and Shower for Baby Girl

I have officially stepped over into the girl world after having my "Tea Party Shower" today. 2 years ago I had 3 showers that were surrounded with the color blue, sports, and just plain ole boy stuff. I am not going to lie it was fun while it lasted, focusing on just lil boy things. But on the other hand, I am so excited about this next season.  My Mom ,Mother In-law, and Aunt In-law did a wonderful job in helping me cross over into the Purple and Pink world ! Today I was surrounded by only women (family and friends), who wore hats, drunk their tea, and ate their scones to JoElle at my Baby Shower. From the tea cups to the feminine gifts I soaked in the excitement of having a Baby Girl. I know that this is only the beginning. I can't wait to put all the pretty dresses on JoElle, do her hair, lace her purple and pink shoes, take her for her 1st pedi and mani, and have our own tea party one day!

Thank you to all that attended my lovely Tea Shower. A big thanks and hugs to my Mom, Mom#2, and Aunt Kit for putting your heart and love into making me feel special on my journey to becoming a Mother of a precious Baby Girl!
