Baby Shower Preparations

I’ve been hard at work planning for my good friend’s baby shower.  I’ve bought some beautiful paper and scrapbook embellishments from Michael’s to make the invitations.  She is having a jungle theme in the nursery so,  I thought it would be cute if the invitations matched.  I’m looking  for games that might be fun and not too difficult to organize.  I’ll be counting on Maddie to help out a lot.

Here are the finished invites.

Now the work beginnings.  I need to fill them out and address get myself to the post office.

We have been having a lot of snow lately.  Seems we have yet another snow day for the kids.  The fourth in 2 weeks.  Throw in a P.A. day in there for good measure as well. Wow, nice to be a kid around here.

Tonight ( Thursday February 7th) we go to Rascal Flatts concert at the Air Canada Centre.   This is part of Maddie’s Christmas gift.  We are going with a friend of ours and staying at the Hotel Novotel. Hotel Novotel

When we got home I delivered the bassinet full of sheets and blankets to my pregnant friend.  I think she liked everything.  I didn’t take pictures of the orange fleece with the polka dot trim.  So soft.  I had enough to make a throw for mama too.   There was enough of the micro fleece to make two back to back blankets.  She has a friend who is expecting so, this might make a nice gift for her .  These blankets were selling for around $40 at the One of A Kind Craft Show this year.  I think waiting for the half price sale made them come in at around $8 each.  Nice savings.

img_1170.jpg I purchased this bassinet about 12 years ago and now it’s seen at least 3 other babies through their first few months.  This is the first time I have made a bumper pad for it.  I think it makes it cozier.  I hope baby number 4 finds it to be a comfortable lodging.
