Last Saturday I threw a shower for one of my best friends. Many of you know her - whether in person or through the blogosphere. For those of you who don't, she's pregnant with #5 with 4 boys in her brood. She's due toward the end of this month - though I know she'd be glad to "go at any time". She is holding out hope that the baby is born on the 18th. You can read more about her story/pregnancy here. And the reason she'd like the baby to be born on that date is because that's her son Matthew's birthday.
The basket below is filled with gorgeous receiving blankets made by Megan's mom. We all went ga-ga over them! They have crocheted edges - I don't recall the stitch name, but they were saying it's very simple. Simple or not, we all want Bruce to teach us how to make them. She comes back in 3wks and said she'd be happy to give a lesson... or 2 :O) And, yes, Megan's mom's name is Bruce. She really needs to write a post on all the male gendered names in her family - and I'm not talkin' about names for the boys! I tried to zoom in on the picture to show the crocheted edges, but it won't save like that. And no, I didn't try in Photoshop - which we ended up buying the other night.
Megan and I are in the middle - not sure if the others would mind their names in here, so we'll just call them "Cake Maker" and "Ducky Cookie Maker", respectively ;)
Showers are so funny - all the oooo's and awwww's that accompany each unwrapped gift!
Megan ~ you, Catherine and all the boys are in our prayers. May God grant you a speedy and safe delivery so that we can all snuggle with that little blessing!
