Baby Shower #2 - Family

On July 11 my aunt Linda threw a shower in her back yard. It was so much fun to see all of my family and I got so many nice things. Also helpful were some gift cards and checks which we used to get a bouncer, a pack n play, a crib mattress and bedding, a boppy, and an infant tub. Kaitlyn is all set! My mom made the quilt with the white background, for some reason I didn't get a good picture of the front. It's yellow and has mommy and baby animals all over it. She hand quilted it, which is why I'm holding up the white back for everyone to see. My grandma Z also made a "fuzzy" for Kaitlyn. About 16 years ago we had a homemade Christmas, and everything we gave to anyone we had to hand make. My parents spent quite a while building a Barbie house for my sister and I (the feat was keeping us out of the garage for a month or more!). My grandmother made everyone a fuzzy. We all still have ours, including my 30-something year old cousins (all boys) who like to snuggle with them when they get sick. Most of the original fuzzies have been relegated to rags or ceder chests, but the great grandkids still have theirs and drag them around, too. I'm so glad grandma made one for Kaitlyn (with the help of my mom - thanks for fixing the sewing machine and reminding Grandma how to sew :)). Anyway, here are some pictures of the event, it was a lot of fun. I have a few more on another camera, but I can't find the cord right now, so I'll have to post them later.

Those blankets are so cute, I am still so impressed with the talent of those in our family! Love you lots!

I wish that I could have made it! But we are so excited it isn't much longer and Kaity will be here with us!
