It’s a Baby Girl!

Apparently, I only get the itch to blog when I’m talking about babies! My last post was nearly a year ago and about my cousin’s baby boy. We have had a busy year and I plan on keeping up better on here with our goings-on. I’m sure my parents would like me to continue. 😉 Today, I am excited to share the news that I am going to be an Aunt! My little niece will be here before we know it and I cannot wait to spoil her rotten. That’s what Aunts are for, right?

A couple of weeks ago we had a shower for my sister-in-law to celebrate the little one and it was such a blessed time with friends and family. I was in charge  of the decorations and in my typical fashion, it took forever and a day to get them done. Out of necessity, I started planning and working on everything back in January. (It can be difficult to fit time in for crafting! ) I put my Cricut Expression to work using several cartridges, including Flower Shoppe, Baby Shower and the butterfly from Cake Seasonal Sampler.  Several of the decor items will also be used in Baby’s nursery and I used colors that went with the crib bedding.  Having two boys, I REALLY enjoyed making all the girly flowers and butterflies.

We are thrilled to see our family grow and I know my Brother and Sister-in-law will be wonderful parents. Baby Girl is already loved so much and as the Psalmist wrote “Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him.” Psalms 127:3 (NLT)

Morning Reflection

This morning I woke up before 5 AM. Anyone that knows this family, KNOWS we are not exceptionally early risers. However, I couldn’t get back to sleep and besides thinking about the laundry I needed to get caught up on, I began to think about my friends. Even more specifically, thanking God for my friends and loved ones. Continue reading »
