We had such a great weekend in Minnesota. We went to there so I could help my mom throw a baby shower for my good friend Justine. She is due August 1st so she should have her little one very soon! Here are some pictures from the shower
I had to make her some cute fat birdies, including a little egg for their baby girl.
This punch was awesome! I think it was a mixture of juice, 7 up and sherbet ice cream. It was definitely a hit
Some of the tasty food
The mama-to-be! Isn’t she beautiful?
Also she loved her baby blanket! I was so happy to make that for her sweet baby girl. My mom made these paper birdies and gave them to everyone at the party. They had to write some type of baby advice Justine and her husband. Then they all hung them on the tree. My mom is so creative
Justine and Hailey
It was so nice being able to do the baby shower for her. Justine and her mom threw an amazing baby shower for me when I was pregnant. They even threw a “man shower” for Kyle, which involved a trip to Dave & Busters and some Rock Band playing. Each guy had to bring a pack of diapers, which ended up lasting us at least 3 months!
Ok moving on…
My mom got me one of the coolest gifts I had gotten in awhile. She got me these beautiful wooden knitting needles! I was amazed. I have always wanted a pair of wooden needles but they always seem too pricey for me.
I was so excited! And yes you’re reading the price right, they were just $5.00 My mom got these at a store called Art 2 Heart in Minnesota that has a bunch of handmade items, including some of my mom’s stuff. All of their earnings go to some great Christian ministries. How cool is that?
Abba’s House is one of the ministries they donate to. Above is a message from a girl who was helped through Abba’s House.
I can’t wait to try these knitting needles out. I feel like I should make something really special with them Lastly, I’ll leave you with a picture of my little book worm
I hope everyone is having a great day!
