Catching up....

okay, okay!  Since somebody brought to my attention the fact that I have been.......errr.....lacking in my updating..... I'll do a couple entries and bring it up to speed.

This entry will be about my niece's baby shower from......like....a month ago.  I know that's a way back, but the pictures are pretty good and somebody might get some ideas from the decorations, so why not.......

I'll tell you this.  My sister in law and family are not well off.  They're pretty much on the other side of well off.  However, they are awesome, and so everybody loves them.  This is a major benefit when you're throwing a shower.  My niece hit the jackpot with presents.  She had to buy NOTHING afterwards.  (No jokes about Aunt Amy and her baby shopping addictions, okay?!)

(I'm gonna hit Save and edit later because AOL is acting crazy...)

  1. Isn't that why there are baby showers? My nephew and his wife got TONS of stuff at their baby shower, and for those just starting off, that's got to be such a relief!

  2. That is so sweet :)  It is good when siblings are close, family in general also.  Something that is disappearing this day and age, sadly... I'm glad she received everything that she needed! and Ryan is an excellent decorator! Hugz and Blessings* Teresa

  7. Hey, if I had a baby in the family that I could hold and hug and play with, I'd go shopping BIG time.  With my credit card, even.

  11. Awesome ideas for a shower. I'll have to keep them in mind for the first grandchild...that will be...uhm...err...not for a while I hope (winks). Ryan was really talented with the decorations. The diaper cake was truly original. So why have we been so sporadic with entries? hmmm I'm thinking it's baby loving time with the new addition. (Hugs)Indigo
