Baby Shower!

Today was great! I am *so* tired! My friends Leslie-Jean and Jen along with my sister, Patti, threw a baby shower! Thanks so much to all that came, and we missed those of you who were not able to make it. It was lots of fun, and the food was wonderful! We received lots of nice things for Benaiah and many items to take to the transition home and orphanages!

Isn't this the cutest cake? My sister emailed the bakery, Once in a Blue Moon, the little baby off of our ticker at the bottom of the blog. Cool! It was really yummy too -chocolate cake with chocolate-raspberry mouse and butter cream icing.

Here is our mini-America World gathering! It was great to meet Jill, Marshall, and the famous "Mr. Squishy Cheeks!" We also had a little celebration for Candy's referral!

Thank-you everybody!! We feel *very* LOVED!

(Happy to not disappoint, Jen!)

It was so fun to talk with you today, Susan! Thanks for calling! Can't wait for Yahtzee & pumping on the plane!! LOLOL
So, what kind of silly things do you and your family do with the pictures of your boy??? Kind of like my confession that we rub our faces in and smell the snuggy
sleeps! LOL Wouldn't it be hilarious to have a week of true confessions on our blogs with regards to the pics of our kids???!!! The idea is enough to make me laugh out loud!!!
xoxo, Amy
