A Baby Shower!

Today, the ladies at our church here in Taos hosted a baby shower in celebration of our little boy's coming arrival!

It was a sweet time of fellowship, activity, and the blessing of gifts!

One of the activities was tie-dying onesies.

Isn't that a creative idea?

The hostesses went in together to give us a Pack 'N Play!  This is where our little guy will sleep for the first part of his life in our room before he graduates to his crib in the nursery.

Waiting for guests to arrive...

Getting started on the tie-dye project...





Ladies visiting...

Artists hard at work...





Time for gift-opening!


We received many nice gifts...like these baby toiletry items!

Clothes.

Books.

More clothes!


Bibs.

A hand-made quilt.

A crocheted blanket.

One of the ladies made this hat from all the gift wrap and bows!

Quite stylish, don't you think?

The sweet ladies who blessed us so generously!

Wow!! What a blessing!! Looks like you've been given a great gift in all those caring ladies. Baby showers are such a blessing, especially with a first so you don't have to put out quite as much to get all set up! Praying everything goes well for the rest of your pregnancy and delivery! You are a beautiful momma, and look fabulous for being so close to finished! :)

It is so exciting to see how God is blessing you with the life of your son already! I LOVE seeing all the cute things and God's goodness displayed through your life by others! P.S. We have the same pack n' play! :)
