Find Good In Every Day

One mom's attempt at finding good in every day of this chaotic world.

The Countdown Begins June 3, 2010

Filed under: Daily Blog — Robin @ findgoodineveryday @ 4:06 pm

In reality, the countdown began 9  months ago for Jen and Scott, but now they are in the final weeks…  The waiting game begins.

In the meantime, we had one more shower for Jen.  It was wonderful!  It was so nice to catch up with family and friends and celebrate Jen, Scott, and Baby Lightning.

Four-layered chocolate cake with white buttercream icing. Yum is an understatement!

Mason and Delaney were happy to help Jen open her presents. They were the "ribbon keepers."

Debbie and Ronan came all the way up from Raleigh. It was such a treat - I mean just look at those brown eyes!

The boys did their own thing during the shower, but came after to help with the cleanup and enjoy a brew or two... or three...

 

All in all, it was a successful weekend of celebration, family, and definitely fun!  If only I could throw baby showers all the time…  Seriously!  No matter the stress of getting ready and wanting everything to be perfect, there is such satisfaction and joy in bringing people together for celebration – no matter the event! 

So 17 days and counting until Baby Lightning’s due date.  I’m hoping for an early arrival – for Jen’s sake in this heat!  But no matter when he decides to come, there will be much to celebrate!

    Thanks so much, sissy. The shower was so lovely, and it was so great to see everyone. Thanks for all you did to make it a special weekend. Hoping for an early arrival myself — but we’ll see… I’ll definitely keep you posted! Love you!
