dum de dum de dum...

yesterday was productive..
finished the party favors
and finished the bear!
Do you like him? I still have to make the tag.
the tag will say..
"dear jacob, grammie loved you so much...
even before you were born!"
I still want to make a mobile..
but unless I get very very inspired tonight..
it will not happen before the shower.
I still need to print out the games.
we're playing dr seuss trivia and how many names can they come up with out of the names "Anthony and Vanessa".
We also playing a memory game. there will be a diaper cake packed full of things for the baby. after everyone has been up and had a chance to look at it, they will have to try to remember what they saw and make a list.
I know, most people dont like to play shower games.. but guess what!?
lalala la la!! I DO! I do .. I do!
I bought lots of cute little thingys for prizes.
I'm looking forward to the shower.
The quilt I ordered came today. wow... A special thank you to the lady Kathy Turk who made it. i found her on etsy. I'll post pics of the quilt and her link in a day or two.
the weather is gorgeous right now.. warm and breezy..
I love when the curtains blow in the breeze. I took figgy and frannie out on their leashes.. ( I know.. "cat freak" thats what I used to think about people who took their kitties out on leashes!)
Figgy and Frannie were in heaven!
then I raked around one side of the house. Have I told you how much I dislike yard work? Remember I was supposed to be a rich princess... who has a gardener!
oh well... gotta go make a cup of tea and read some blogs! so see ya's out there.

Oh my goodness. You've certainly been productive!! Your bear is just handsome. Your games will be fun. It's going to be a very special baby shower. How you found the energy to rake on top of everything else is amazing. I'm sure our Luna kitten would love to go visit outdoors. Hugs.

Awww the little bear is precious ! What a special gift. My daughter got a special bear from her Grandma on her first birthday; he still watches over things in her room (she's 29!) I know baby Jacob will love this cuddly little guy Hope the shower is coming together, glad to hear about the cupcakes I hear a sigh of relief all the way down here :) E

the bear is so super cute! Still keeping baby Jacob and the whole family in my daily prayers. I hope you don't mind but I have added him to several of my friend's prayer lists too!
If you ever have time to make a memory bear for me please email me. My hubby's oldest brother past away almost 8 years ago and I kept several articles of his clothes, His army uniforms and a blue jean jacket that he always wore. Would love to have bears made for my hubby and my children.
Big hugs to you!
