Zaccheaus Turned 3! and My Shower

Just a little post about Cheaus' third birthday party. We didn't do much, thought I'd try getting away w/ not doing a huge party for one more year. He is really into trains, so I made him a Thomas the Train Cake and put up a dollar store banner that said happy birthday with a train in the middle. We had my mom come over and my nieces Seaira and Sariah stayed the night the night before the party. Josh and I got him a set of tracks and a little drawbridge for his train set he's been acquiring. The drawbridge came w/ another train too. I also got him an oshkosh train engineers hat and a train whistle which were a big hit. My mom and nieces got him some Thomas books and some trains. He also got some other trains on Saturday from my friend Crystal and her mom Susan and knight costume, sword and little knight figurine from Trish and Ben.

Also on Saturday was my baby shower. I had a lot of fun. We didn't get any pictures even though four people there had picture phones and two digital cameras were nearby, but o'well I'll paint you a mental picture. We had it down at the party room in the clubhouse of our apt complex and our theme was "mother daughter tea party" in honor of us expecting our little girl. My mom, great-aunt, sister Shandi (and her girls), SIL Trish (w/ niece Gabby), three friends from church Jessica, Meredith (w/Esther and Josiah) and Annika and Crystal, Susan and Delilah all made it for the party. Annika's son Drew also came, but to spare him the boredom of a girly party we let him come up and play w/ the boys. Which I heard was a lot of fun, as well. We had a huge selection of teas to drink and a nice assortment of snacks. And cheesecake for dessert! Which I almost forgot about serving LOL. We got a lot of amazingly great stuff for baby/us. We got outfits in all different styles and sizes, two really great books (that we've actually been wanting to find to buy ourselves), a picture frame, a baby bath set, receiving blankets, burp clothes, gift cards to target and a baby swing (thanks mom). Shandi also brought me a huge bag full of stuff for the baby that had recieving blankets, lots of clothes, snow suit bunting thingies and a bunch of other stuff. Sorry if I forgot anything, I'm still a little overwhelmed by it all. If you really need to see pictures of some of the stuff, it's on my registry (www. Target.com ) . I had such a great time getting to see everyone and visiting. I have four weeks left until my due date and it's getting really exciting now as everything is coming all together. My room is almost all set up w/ her stuff (we just have to figure out where we're putting all these super cute clothes) and all her little accoutrement's are being positioned throughout the house. AHH! I can't wait! Talk to you all later! :-)
Oh here's those great books I recieved. Both are by Micheal Pearl You should check them out too...
