On Baby Showers and Sad News

No, the two aren't really related except that they happened on the same day.  I had a really nice baby shower last night, but it was dampened with the knowledge that my brother and sister-in-law lost three friends in an avalanche just after noon.  I only met one of them once (at their wedding), but it doesn't matter.  It's still sad and hard for everyone.

So, my sister-in-law planned a lovely shower and then didn't end up coming.  My mom took over and it was still fun.

I got lots of diapers and a few cute outfits as well.  I'm am sure this will not be enough diapers, but it's a start!

The cupcakes were amazing and just hanging out with friends was good.

Since the boys couldn't have the leftover pizza or cupcakes they've been enjoying the balloons... and they don't know that I came home with a whole bag of chocolate either!

This is the last "official" thing I have on my calendar.  For the girls sake they need to stay in a couple more weeks, but other than doctor's appointments (which obviously would be moot) I don't have to go anywhere or do anything more... other than keep my house clean hopefully!


  1. I'm glad you had a fun shower!

    I saw the news about the avalanche on the news but haven't seen any names released. We have several skiing friends up there so I was worried for awhile. Im SO sorry for that! That is so hard!

  2. Life. So full of the mix of sad and happy.

    Sending love to you.

    Praying for you, and glad you got a shower and celebration of you and the girls even on a terribly sad day!
