Baby Shower Explosion!

We were very blessed with two wonderful baby showers last weekend. Friday, Johns co-workers at Farmland Foods threw us a great shower. We enjoyed seeing everyone and all the lovely presents!

Sunday we had another shower that my sister Mechelle, best friend Kristi, Mom and Grandma put together. It was fabulous!!

We now are stocked with so many things, we have a weekend ahead us us to get Baby Tiny's room ready and organized! We have enjoyed going through all the presents two and three times..so many cute things!

Amara's room is an explosion of gifts!




My best friend Kristi had this made and it was sitting on the table with the food and cake at the shower. It lights up and is sooo cute! Very special, and proudly displayed in Amara's room!


This child will definitely know her name!!


We are 1 month away from the court date. If all goes well, we will acutally be leaving a week earlier than we thought! We will head to Ethiopia the last week of May. We are still trying to figure out our flights, but I have reserved the master room at the New Flower Guest home in Addis Ababa.


John is very busy at work and recently returned from some international travel. He went to China and Phillipines. We are glad he got this trip out of the way so he wont have to leave for a while! Billy really objects to these trips! Can't you tell?!






Two weeks ago, I hosted a shower for a very good friend, Angie. She is due in May!!! After the shower when I was cleaning up, Bosco discovered he really likes helium balloons.

WE received the CUTEST little blanket today from John's Aunt Mary Kay. What a special gift.....thank you so much. I loved how she stiched Baby Tiny on the inside of the softest little blanket.
