Caitlin also did an excellent job of decorating the driveway in sidewalk chalk. She had an area for me to park that indicated it was my spot, and all others would be towed. The other half of the driveway was decorated in sidewalk chalk as well, welcoming me with a very colourful version of my name, and she had drawn pictures of balloons.
I LOVED that friends and family from out of province also sent giftd and cards to the hosts house for the shower. I was so suprised actually. It was so meaningful and I felt to loved that they cared enough to do so, and to plan it all! I was definately touched!!!! Thanks guys!
Everyone who wasn't able to attend the shower has been asking me what we did and what I received as gifts. (I even brought the truck instead of the car so that I could transport all the loot home with me!!! hahaha)
We receieved so many wonderful gifts, so this is going to be hard to recap it all:
- Several Blankets....even a knitted homeade one from my friend Andrea, so thoughtful, I love it!!!
- Sippy Cups / Spoons, etc.
- Several Toys
- Towels / Face Cloths
- Changetable Pad
- Misc TML attire
And of course I have received several other things throughout my pregnancy from several different people. I also had the shower with my sisters and Mom. I could go and grab the items and grab pics of them, but really I couldn't be bothered at the moment, as the wall paint is still drying, and I don't want the pets going in, plus I am exhausted!!!!
Here are some pictures!!!
