Well, I have a lot to catch up on! I’ve been a pretty bad blogger lately, but with sleeping in so late in the mornings, working and then being so tired when I get home, blogging takes a back seat. I’ll have to try to get better at this.
Last Sunday, Joe and I headed to the other side of Atlanta for his sister’s baby shower. There were people there who I haven’t seen in a long time, and it was a lot of fun. Rachel’s best friend threw the shower, and she did a great job. The food was really good. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too hungry since we had stopped for lunch on the way, but I did taste the brownies and cake! 🙂
One of the activities was to paint onesies for the baby. I’ve heard of this at baby showers but have never been to one where we actually did it. Thank goodness there were stencils. Otherwise, the baby would have gotten a not-so-cute onesie from her aunt! Mine is the second from the left.
We also played a few games, including the “poopy diaper” game, which consisted of checking out melted candies in diapers and trying to identify them. I was one of four of us to get a perfect score. I didn’t know if I should be proud of that or a little embarrassed that I know chocolate so well. I didn’t even have to smell them in order to figure out which candy bars they were!
We also had to guess how many squares of toilet paper would fit around Rachel’s belly. I was a little over, but not as far over as others were! One person was right on, which was awesome.
And, of course, there were gifts. Rachel got a bunch of neat things, including several of the big items off her registry. After the shower, we got a picture of all the ladies together.
We also got a picture of the mom-to-be and dad-to-be, and of the siblings.
The weekend before, we celebrated my mom’s birthday. And, it was quite a nice birthday for her because Ryan, Ori and Harry were there after missing their flight the day before. Long story short, they were misdirected in the check-in line at the airport, and by the time they were finally told the correct place to go, they had missed their flight. It was nice to get to spend another day with them, though!
According to Harry, who needs food when you have a paper plate! And seriously, his curly hair is so freaking cute!
I know my mom was just so happy to have all three of her kids there for the day.
That night, Ryan and his family headed to Atlanta since their flight was the next morning, so we got to spend a little more time with them by having dinner with them at the Cheesecake Factory. It was a lot of fun, and I’ll definitely be excited to see them again next August.
