We just got back from our trip to Oklahoma City. Surprisingly, the kids (including Dozer) were great the entire time. We're normally a flying kind of family, but I got this wild hair that thought driving would be an easier option. Crazy, huh? Actually, it wasn't too bad and it was nice to leave and return when we wanted instead of when the flights were open enough for our family of 5 to fly standby (which can be really stressful).
We had a GREAT time at the baby shower! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful ideas for games. We ended up doing a game called Nuk-Chuck that sagerats came up with. Each person gets a pacifier and whoever can spit it out the furthest wins-- talk about funny!
I also cut a piece off of 5 different candybars and melted each on a diaper. Guests had to guess what was on each diaper (Take 5, Kit Kat, Butterfinger, Mr. Goodbar and Reese's Cups). I've got pics of some of them sniffing brown stuff on little diapers...I think I'll have to save some of the pics for some useful and possibly embarrassing purpose in the future (the pictures, not the diapers!). hehehee...
And the not-quite-as-funny-but-still-fun game of guessing the baby food. I took the labels off of 8 jars of babyfood and guests had to guess what kind of baby food it was.
Anyhow, it was a fun shower with lots of food and all of my sisters and my mom. What more could I have asked for? :-) The kids also played well together and the guys survived taking all of the little ones to Incredible Pizza during the shower... on a Saturday... and on a holiday weekend. Seriously, that is quite an accomplishment wouldn't you say?
Drat! I forgot to take a picture of the baby quilt that I made for my sister. Coco, can you take a pic of the front and back and send it to me? This was one of the reasons why I didn't have as much blogging time the past couple of weeks. I am not a speedy seamstress by any means! But I am very pleased on the final product of this quilt.
Well, I better get to bed. It's been a fun week that went by way too quickly! If I missed anything too terribly exciting on any of your blogs, please leave me a comment to let me know, okay? Oh and check out Gena's blog entries for this past week... Some should be congratulated while others could really use your prayers and encouragement.
Hope y'all had a very blessed Resurrection Sunday!
