Friends' Candyland Shower

My very creative friends threw me a Candyland themed shower. Just the sweet smell from the room could put you into a diabetic coma.....and I loved it! It was fun to visit with everyone and play fun games. Norah got a bunch of awesome gifts. All I can say is that this girl shouldn't need anything for her first year of life. Our friends and family have made sure she will be well supplied with everything she could possibly need.

The object of the game was to get as many candy
necklaces around the candy bottles as possible.


Jamie won! She got two!


Sara got one!



This was the goal of the game.

It's done!!!!

Our upstairs bonus room is finally done! Now we're ready to start moving things upstairs. We'll use this room as our guest bedroom and office. Our old office will become the baby's room. Things are slowly falling into place for Norah's arrival. I think that Michael and his helpers (Pops and Reid) did a great job.

Couple's Shower

This past weekend we had a shower thrown by some of our closest friends. It was so much fun to sit around and visit, just like in the old days. And the food was delicious! We are very thankful for the amazing friends that God has placed in our lives.
