Lots has happened since my last post.
Yesterday was Sarah's baby shower. One of her friends who is also a next door neighbor hosted the shower at their home. Their home is lovely and they really spent time and effort in decorating - it was beautiful. And the food - a wide variety each more delicious than the last. I'm sure there were no calories involved. Sarah's mother made a wonderful punch. I need to talk to her about that mix.
I don't think I've ever before seen so many nice gifts at one shower. Mav is going to be one well dressed baby with every luxury available for one so young. Where were all these things when I was raising babies? I know, I know - don't tell me. I raised my babies a loooonnnngggg time ago.
I ask Sarah if I could post a couple of pictures of her here. She selected the pics below. It's important that you understand just how pregnant this girl is. We're not having a five pound dainty little girl. We're having a hefty he-man boy. If you don't believe it just ask Harry Junior (aka Buddy). Sarah's due date is in early May so she still has about 6 weeks to go. It'll be a long six weeks for her.
One of the games was for each person to cut off a piece of yarn that she thought would be a measure of Sarah's present waistline. Then see who was closest by putting each piece of yarn around her. In the picture below Sarah's mom is checking the piece of yarn she cut. The hostess' mother is looking on. Sarah's mom won easily!After all the measuring and giggling was over Sarah claimed her comfortable seat in prep for opening a mountain of gifts. Our little mother-to-be was absolutely worn out after the shower. This day will be one of her "forever memories".
While all the women were enjoying our gathering the men folk were next door grilling, watching a truck race, and whooping it up. The more things change the more they stay the same.
NASCAR just said "gentlemen start your engines" - I'm outta here.
