November showers bring...

a December baby!

It goes something like that, right?

Last week I was spoiled!

First, some of my dear friends from church threw an incredible baby shower. Denise, Becky, Tammi, Melody and Ashley it was a perfect night. Thank you!

I, of course, was not an incredible picture taker. Thanks, Ashley, for having your camera. Can't wait to see the pics!

I understand more and more as life goes on why I call these women and so many others 'sisters.' They are that in every sense of the word. They made sure the evening was filled with fun, delicious food and meaningful (and hilarious) stories about taking care boys. I'm incredibly blessed to have so much help when it comes to advice about caring for little boys! Ladies, I'll be calling, that's for sure.

Then, these incredible friends got all of my co-workers together and spoiled me again. Bonnie, Lynn and Alison went to a ton of work to plan a great party.

These are friends that I've had and seen daily for the past ten years. We've gotten each other through a lot, both personally and professionally. It's hard to believe that in a couple of weeks I'll be stepping away from that.

Alison made this cute cupcake tower out of terra cotta pots. So creative!

Debbie is a retired teacher who now substitutes at my school.

She has been my go to gal for the past three years. In fact, for about a year she was like a second teacher to my students. I'd be gone every other day or so in the morning for doctor's appointments, and she just walked in and taught. It was almost effortless for me. She jokes that thanks to me needing her so often, she relandscaped her backyard with the money. I'm just grateful that she was there -- a LOT.

This shower, just like the first, was so fun and memorable. One thing is for sure: thanks to so much generosity, we're getting closer to having what we need for our little guy. He's definitely going to be well dressed!

Only 5 1/2 more weeks!
