Baby Shower

I know I have been blogging a lot today, but I am trying to catch up:) Some of my good friends and sister threw me an amazing baby shower this last weekend! It had a carnival theme that was oh so cute! I must say that they out did themselves. There were nachos, "corn dogs", sodas in glass bottles, an ice cream bar, and very cute decorations! There was also a clown dress up game and Ashlyn got to pick her favorite clown....or course, she picked the one with the big pink sunglasses:) I had such a great time with my family and friends, and was so blessed by all the gifts that were given to me! I am starting to get use to all the blue stuff in my house:) Ashlyn is just loving playing with all the baby toys:) Here's a few pics from the shower...

Picking Strawberries

Today, we went to Froberg Vegetable and Fruit Farm in Alvin to pick some strawberries. We went with several other mommies and kiddos from church. It was perfect weather outside...bright and sunny but not too hot! Ashlyn and I both had a great time! I have never done this before, but I have wanted to take Ashlyn. We only came home with about 5 lbs of strawberries. I'm sure between Ashlyn and me, we will have them all eaten by the end of the week:)

Brayden's Room Pics

I am finally posting pictures of Brayden's room. There are still a few more items to get to complete the room, but we love what it looks like so far! Enjoy!

Sewing Projects

With all the other gifts I have made for the other lovely ladies having babies, I have somehow managed to make some things for Brayden. I learned how to sew when Ashlyn was about 2 years old, so many of the things I know how to make, she was too old for, so I pretty much made them as gifts for other people. Now, I finally got to make things for my own child! Here is all the stuff I have made so far (I'm sure I will make more:))......

(9 burp clothes, 6 bibs, 2 swaddling blankets, 1 taggy blanket, 2 nursing covers, and car seat strap covers)
