Congratulations, Kyle and Michelle!

Jeremy and I, along with two sets of neighbors (the Whites and the Adams) got to have fun and throw a party last weekend for another set of neighbors, the DiEduardos. We found out shortly after the new year began that they were expecting and then later, that it would be a baby girl. Since then, they've been trying to figure out a name, but they've already got a nursery together, enough clothes to outfit her for the rest of her life, and 3 sets of "babysitters" that will be willing to help ANY TIME!!
We got really excited because we had a great reason to have a party! We hosted about 30 folks for a cookout in our backyard, and had a great time!
I got a little crafty - I matched up the paper design (toille, milky sage, and pink gingham to SLD's bedding and made a poem:
"We were so happy to celebrate, when we heard your fantastic news...
That you have a little one on the way, be expecting lots of pink instead of blues.
Stella, Sophia, Sarah Sabra, her name we do not know. She's sure to be a cutie, and we're ready to watch her grow. So here's to your family, our prayers, support, and love, we're excited to welcome SLD, a gift from God, a blessing from above." - I though that was pretty good:)
The invitation is sitting beside the poem - it only took hours of lining up the print, but thanks to the Adams, the day was saved!!

Then I got crafty again with the pink gingham. I picked up a yard of this fabric (on sale for only $2/yd) and lined one of my baskets for the buns. I then tied some ribbon with pink hand prints and foot prints to gather the corners - yay!

We had a blast and are soooo excited! Keep praying for Kyle and Michelle in the last 7-8 weeks of their pregnancy. We're sure to take care of them all when little SLD arrives!
