yes, My sweet friends gave me a little dinner in honor of our sweet Wes..... I surely wasn't expecting anything for baby #6 (even though I think he's JUST as special as baby #1 who had about 10 showers...seriously :) I was SO excited when my friend Vanessa said she wanted to give me a little dinner...I picked my favorite spot "Local Taco" and we all met up.....I forgot my camera...so I snapped a few pics of the night with my Iphone...the pics aren't the greatest, but I had to share a few anyways!! Not the best pic of me below...but proof I was at MY OWN shower CELEBRATING our sweet Wes....I asked for NO presents...but a few people slipped some in anyways......He got some new outfits...some gift cards...an adorable 147 Million tshirt from my friend Gwen...it was so fun...Below, my sister Kelly (Mrs. Ordinary Hero) and Gwen (mrs. 147 million orphans) were present....so glad they could come...My CCI peeps came to represent too....Friends I've known for my entire 12 years of marriage showed up to celebrate baby #6....and newer friends like, Amber, who was my travel buddy to pick up Lucy Lane...Such a NEAT group representing so many different parts of my life...I got so many cute little things for Wes...but I have to show you what my friend Eve gave me...Seriously....I talk to her every day in car line while we wait to pick up our kids...She's in the same spot we're in..waiting for clearance from the Embassy for her Ethiopian daughter....and she NEVER once mentioned she was an artist....
ok, so she SERIOUSLY pencil sketched a portrait of Wes...AND, she did it in CAR LINE....Yes, she's THAT talented...AND, IT LOOKS JUST LIKE HIM!!!! CRAZY!!! Thanks Eve SO MUCH!! I can't believe you were able to do this...I LOVE IT:
Wow, i have some sweet and talented friends!! And, I had a cute pic of my friend karen and my friend Vanessa (who organized this) but some how I do believe ONE of them erased it from my phone...hmmmmmm!! :)
**Thanks a MILLION everyone for coming!! Thanks Vanessa for organizing!! I can't wait to get our boy home so you can all meet him!! And, I'm so blessed that so many people ALREADY love him SO MUCH!!! It was a wonderful night!! Happy Wednesday to you all, kj
