Thanks so much for telling me who you are. I was so excited to check out some new blogs and the ones that my Aunt Linda recommended (tramfrau) are soooo funny, So I hope that you check them out too! And Aaron, I didn't know you read and now I am a subscriber to you, it will be so good to keep up!
LaTisha made this beautiful diaper cake
We ended up using these outside..
Like I said, they didn't know the sex, so Jessica came up with this hilarious idea. Funny story though, from far away you couldn't see the marker, so when Jodi's mom walked in, she stopped in her tracks and screams "is there something I need to know?!" It was really funny.
This is Jodi and Her momma Leanne. (correct me if I spelled it wrong) Opening gifts...I didn't realize it then, but this is a ton of tissue paper.
Bridget made these for little John. They are so sweet.
This is a photo of the final layout. The Book on the box is a baby name book because we didn't know what the sex of the baby was, so it was fun for conversation, and the box is was full of well wishing cards for the hospital Matt and Jodi.
After the shower we met some of the college friends for an early dinner. This is who we hung out with in college.
Karnell, LaTisha (married) Matt, Jodi (married) Andy, Jessica, John (married) Andrew, Mike (in case you didn't know Mike has been living with us since July.) Andrew, Andy, Matt and John were roomies in College.
*So as for me, I woke up yesterday with my skin so sore to the touch all over that sitting down hurts. I started running a fever at lunch time and then I slept it off. I woke up and did some LUMY stuff. I woke up through the night, every time I moved I woke up because my skin is so sore. I woke up with a fever, then I took my last dose of Roxicet (tear) and then called my Doc. When he called back he told me that he believes that I have a viral infection. So, the solution is to let the thing run its course and to be still. So after the roxicet set in I was good for a few hours, but now, as the day goes on, the fever goes up! yeah! So now I rest. The sucky thing is that Jessie Rochat (Stough) was going to visit and we were going to paint the town this weekend. But I felt like it was the best idea to call her and cancel. Which totally sucks cause this was the first time we would have gotten together and actually had a chance to talk for as long as I can remember, but I know that it is best for me to do nothing but rest. So...keep praying please cause I feel like crap.

This is a place where you can actally design your own fabric and they will print it. It is a little pricey, but if you can't find what you are looking for on the market it is pretty awesome. I linked you to thier blog. The blog is really great, and thier flicker is really inpiring too. So here is the Link to thier home page.
Now on to real flowers, I love flowers, but not in the traditional sense.I am not a fan of roses and if there is something I don't like at all it is babies breath. I actually think I like roses, but I see them so much with babies breath that it makes me want to stay away from them. I have a friend who had surgery yesterday and I wanted to send her flowers, so I went to Flowers.com and while they are all too expensive for me to send, I fell in love with like 20 of the boquets. They are art! They truly are. So I decided to post the photos of my favorites, and I have been inspired to make my own boquet for my friend, (Target always has really great flowers) and I will post pictures of what I come up with as soon as I do it and take photos.

This is my workspace, and it is new! the bench on the Left is the place where I hide all of my supplies, so when I get them all out and lay them out, it is pretty much amazing that they all fit into that secret little hiding spot. Well I had this one Scrap Book page that I did that I thought Margie and Linda would like, and I forgot I had done it, but then my mom saw it yesterday and we decided that I should post it. I took the photos really late last night, so the light isn't exactly desirable, but you should be able to get the idea.So, anyway, "great ideas". My mom and I were chatting about music. My mom is a self-proclaimed music hater, but she loves good worship. So, she was telling me that there were some songs from Bigsuf (church camp that mom helped sponsor) that she loved and she even remembered the words. So I told her I would put together some CD's. As I was grabbing the blank CD's, I realized I had no CD cases...which led to my brilliance. I thought, "I will just make a cd case. So once I had the ultimate list of songs, which include selections from Shane and Shane, Waterdeep, steve Fee, Leeland, Starfield, Hillsong United, Bigstuf Hope CD, Chris Tomlin, David Crowder and Derek Webb to name a few, I realized I had like 57 songs. So I named the collection, The "Not Your Mama's Worship Mix" mix. And here are the images of what I made. (if I made it again, I would make some changes, but its not so bad for off the cuff! I used all Love, Elsie stuff, Which is my friend Elsie's line. (which will be discontinued before long) and lots of felt and thread!
