Creating a memorable baby shower gift!

I recently hosted a Baby Shower/Blessingway for my friend who is expecting. Our moms group wanted to collaborate on a gift for her. One friend had the idea to each create a quilt square and then she'd collect them and sew them into a cloth baby book for the new baby to play with. It turned out just fabulous and I wanted to share the pics!

It turned out really durable and I am sure it will provide great fun for the new baby since it includes a variety of textures. On the last page, just inside the back cover, we all signed our names and wrote messages to the mom-to-be!

I would highly suggest this idea if you're trying to plan a creative Baby Shower for a friend or family member.

Girls Day Out @ Disney!

Well my daughter completed her "Sleeping Poster" after sleeping in her own bed, alone, for 50+ nights in a row. Her reward was to be the super-mega-ultra-special reward of her choice. So we decided I would take her to Disney for her birthday and hubby would stay home with the boys.

We had a great time and although she's only just turned 6 she was more than willing to ride anything they had, no matter how scary. She also got a kick out of the Haunted House and pointed out how fake everything was throughout the ride! lol It was too cute.

It was nice to get to spend some one on one time with her since I always have my sons with me and it prevents her from getting the quality attention she used to before they were born.

It was definitely a trip we will not soon forget and the videos I got of her riding the roller coasters are priceless!

Totally Awesome New Blog Template!

I was in total need of a new template. A makeover gets me inspired to write more, so I visited who offers some adorable free blogger templates! Hope you like it!
