It seems like I've hardly been to work this year and now we are on a week long winter break. I mean, I'm not complaining especially since this momma-to-be's feet are aching and swollen. It's nice to have the time to put them up and relax a bit.
Baby Showers Galore!!
Last week my wonderful teaching partners threw us a beautiful shower! They had a baby animal theme which was just perfect because our baby's nursery is all animal prints. They had it at school in our media center so my whole work family was able to attend. I am blow away by their generosity and thoughtfulness. We indulged in some snacks and a yummy cake! We got our stroller, a Target gift card, and a cute diaper cake.
My class also threw us a shower. My amazing room mom organized it all. She got a diaper bag and asked all the students to bring a book to fill it. My home children's library is off to a great start! My class was so excited to share their book with me. They are looking forward to finding out if it's a boy or a girl and to be able to meet him/her. They are so excited!
Yesterday we had our family shower. It was at a beautiful hotel not to far from our house. My mom and grandma did such an amazing job planning and decorating everything. They had a winter theme, "Baby It's Cold Outside." Needless to say, the weather did not disappoint, it snowed all morning and afternoon. We were showered with love from our family and closest friend. It was absolutely perfect, more than we could have ever asked for!
The weather here has been awfully frigid. We've gotten about 4 more inches of snow on top of the foot we already had. Tomorrow the weather is calling for a snow-sleet mix. So we figured... let's make the most of these cold, snowy days and create a snowman pack! So here is "A Frosty Day!" All the activities in this pack are related to snowmen. We literally just put the finishing touches on it and will be using it next week Friday! We are so excited for another themed day!
Well I'm off to put together a bassinet! 5 more weeks until we meet our baby! :)
