New Years Blessings

The New Year! What a wonderful time to evaluate our blessings and where we are going in our lives! I have all kinds of plans for changes I want to make! Now I just need to write them down!

We had a kind of rough New Year's Eve, and I'm happy that the New Year started as wonderful as it did! My younger sister who is expecting was in a pretty severe car accident with her husband on their way back to school (and to our house for her baby shower). Their car was hit by a semi, along with her brother-in-law's car, but no one was injured! The cars are both totalled, a few scrapped pinkies and one goose egg, but the baby to be and the others are all okay! It was a New Years Eve Miracle for sure!

The baby shower was really fun, even though it was postponed one day while we waited for Heather to get there! I decorated some cupcakes that turned out pretty cute with The Perfect Cupcake Frosting and made her some Tie Onesies from this lady and some Wee Wee Wigwams from this gal. Lovin' crafty blogs! I would post some pictures, but someone stole my card reader adapter, so I can't! UPDATED: Had to add a picture of the cupcakes- aren't they fun?

okay, the wee wee wigwams are like the funniest thing I've ever seen. I LOVE it! Although, to be honest, Xanden only did that like once in his life and I was a slow diaper changer, I guess some boys just like to feel a breeze and some don't care. Although, now if I could just get him to use the indoor restroom...
