The two young women who planned the shower did a beautiful job. The cupcake design was so creative.
The big girls were so excited to help. They were so eager that they opened the gifts too fast - like they do at Christmas. They would immediately claim one outfit or another for their own baby. Halfway through, they opened gifts from one of the guests, a very thoughtful grandma who gave them coloring books and crayons, etc. They immediately dropped to the floor and begin creating.
One of the younger guests - her mommy was one of the hostesses.
Oh, my goodness - the people of our church were so incredibly generous. These little girls will be the best dressed twins in the state, maybe the region. When you think that everyone bought double - and some bought several double outfits - it was overwhelming. It was if they looked at all of the cute things and couldn't resist any of them!
These little "Baby Kakes" are made by a gal who works in a deli at Albertson's. She takes the angel food cake containers and makes these wonderful gifts. Unfortunately, Care Bear and Feisty got so excited about them that I didn't get a picture before they were dismantled. I put one together as best I could. The core is filled with diapers, with a receiving blanket lining the cover. In the middle of the diapers is a colorful bottle. Also included are two little tiny hats, a brush and comb set, and some little bows for their future hair. Just adorable!
Do these burp cloths look familiar to you? Thanks, Barb, for doing such a wonderful job for us! She loves them and they have been put to good use already today.
Between the diapers I bought every week since I learned of the twins coming, and the ones she got yesterday, plus the huge box of wipes, we should be in good shape for quite awhile. What a blessing!
Another blessing I need to acknowledge - last week I posted a message from our DIL, Sema, about the conditions her family is living with in Kenya. She has been so blessed by the checks and prayer pledges she has received from you. She also got money from her church small group and her co-workers. She finally reached her dad by phone, and he was totally overwhelmed with joy, amazement, and surprise. Please go over and read her new post at Twenty-Eight Celsius. It will bless you.
