Baby shower

I sure do love everyone in my life. My mother in law, Aunts and Rachel threw a baby shower for me today and it was such a fun time. Not because of all the great gifts (bonus yes) but all the fun and excitement. We had a blast playing some pretty interesting games that Rachel put together. The first was a quiz of nursery rhymes...not just any old quiz but one that had even the most seasoned mom stumped. The second game, appropriately named "My Water Broke", was a race to get a tiny plastic baby from his ice cube. The winner was Teri Allred followed closely by my cousin Amber and my mom. The last game was the baby twist on musical chairs, aka musical bottle. Participants sat in a circle and passed around three bottles, each containing about 7oz of water. Whoever had a bottle when the music stopped had to then race and drink the entire bottle. Out of the three constants, the winner was chosen by the first to finish. The finalists: Ashley Jones, Brittany Jones and myself. Unfortunately for those cute girls...I finished first. With a cramped mouth I vowed to never rush my sweet baby boy when's not an easy task. We were plumped up by some delicious food provided by the Stailey family. The party fav: Pumpkin roll (and how fitting for the season:) After eating and visiting, Bethanie and I opened gifts. A quick shout out to all who contributed...everything was just perfect and such a help as we get ready to welcome Canyon!!! Thanks!!!

The one gift Zach was especially excited to put to use was a prenatal heart monitor given to us by my Aunt Jill and her family. The coolest part: you can record the heartbeat to the computer. Zach recorded a little and put to a short little video. See if you can hear the little but strong heartbeat!

Thanks again to all who were there and those who couldn't make it but sent their love and wishes (you know who you are:) We love you so much and appreciate all you do!

Ps..I'll post pictures as soon as I get my hands on some!

I just want to tell you that I pretty much suck. I had every intention of being there and had no reason not to be other than my brain doesn't work. I put invites on my fridge and always remember to look at them again shortly after the event is over! From now on, no more fridge posting for my invites -they need to be posted in my school calendar that I always look at. I did the same thing for Kristin's wedding shower! GRRRR I'm so lame! I'll have to at least get you a good gift for the little boy.
