Oh Baby!!!

I hosted a baby shower for our good friends (well minus the husbands) this past Saturday and what made it even more fun was that it's their first baby; oh and it's a girl which I know a thing or two about. ;) I did a tea and cake shower, notice however I put fruit on the table for good measure. :) And yes Stacy I was good and stayed away from all the tempting sugar. I can actually walk today. ;)
Me & Ruth
Ruth's Grandma drove out for her special day as did lots of other friends and family. It was fun because allot of people from the church I grew up in and we were married in were there so I got to visit with some great people who we miss dearly.
Ruth's mother in law made her this sweet sweater along with some other amazing gifts. I'm glad you had a good day friend and we are SO looking forward to meeting that sweet babe of yours. Love you guys!
OK speaking of babies you know I couldn't sign off without a story about Ryanne right?
The conversation went something like this:
Me: "Man, it'll be so fun when baby Taylor gets here huh girls?"
Ryanne: "ya'."
Me: "Whens that baby coming? Ryanne are they gonna go get her at the hospital soon?"
Ryanne: Blank Stare
Me: "Noooo, they gotta go shopping and get her at the store right Ryanne?"
(As if I haven't learned not to bate Ryanne)
Me & Morgan start kinda giving her hard time in the car Friday like,"Ry, when is that baby gonna pop out of her belly?"
Ryanne: spreading her legs points down south and say's,"Look, there's some holes down there, she comes out of one of them but I don't know which one OK?"
Can I just tell you I learned many important things that day on the way back from Lake Arrowhead;
1. NEVER ask your kids questions about "that stuff" unless you are ready to hear the answers.
2. Never and I mean NEVER ask those kind of questions when your husband is driving 60 down a very steep mountain road. Almost killed us all.
3. NEVER, EVER bate Ryanne with cutsie, I want a 5 year old answer about life's happenings.
