The shower was SO MUCH FUN!!! We had it at a french cafe on 11th and Broadway, great coffee and naughty food for everyone.
There was a terrific turn out and everyone was generous and thoughtful in their gift giving. We got lots of the little onesie's things and socks and hats etc. We got a big furry lady bug and bumblebee which will be favourites for years, I can just tell. We got a puj tub (new baby bath design) and a soothing chair.
Then there were the creative presents. One of our friends is a writer. He dedicated on of his published poems to our kids and framed it for us (of course, I burst into tears). My dear baker friend made two cakes - a ginger cake and malt chocolate cake - and cut them into bite size bits!!! YUMMMMMMMMY.
There are times when the generosity of others, the love and attention of family is just overwhelming. No-one at the table was technically related to either one of us (somewhat fitting for donor babies) but they are all aunts and uncles to our little ones.
I am so happy and blessed and grateful for what has been given to us. Not the presents, but the kids and all the love that goes along with them.
DH shed a tear, totally overwhelmed by love. I said "get used to it" and started planning our first thanksgiving meal with the kids and the non bio family!!
HAve a happy weekend :-)
