*Last reminder! Today’s the final day that the sign-up is open for the Postcard Project Cookie Swap. I’ve been in contact with Cookies For Kids Cancer and found out that Glad will again be matching $1 per cookie we swap, so it’s an added bonus to be able to raise money for kids’ cancer simply by swapping cookies! Last year we raised over $3500 and I’d love to beat that this year. Click here for all the details about the swap.
I had my second…well sort of my third (more on that later)…baby shower yesterday! This one was in Abilene, thrown by Den’s cousins, Andrea, Jessica, and Katerina (with help from their sister, Tessa, from afar – she’s in SE Asia on a mission trip!). Andrea was the ring leader and you are just going to die when you see the creativity and work she put into it! I will be blogging my showers soon, but here’s a photo of the beautiful Andrea with her adorable youngest daughter, Reagan. Joshua will be just a little less than a year younger when he’s born, and it’s so nice that he will have some kiddos his age to play with during the holidays when we visit. :)
We got so much stuff that we really needed, and I feel blessed all over again to have married Dennis because not only did I get him, the best husband of all time according to me, but I got his incredible family too. I can’t say they’re the best family of all time without betraying my own…but yes I can because they are. LOL! They are just wonderful! So loving and generous. With one shower left to go, I think we now have all the big things covered (well, except for the pricy cloth diapers I want, but we can buy those with help from gift cards we’ve received, and using the 10% coupon Target sent us) and only need some little things before his arrival. That is a good feeling!
Today I’m going to the social security office to finally, finally, get my last name changed on my social security card. Yeah, it’s been thirteen years since our wedding and I never did that, even though I’ve gone by Miller and had my name as Miller on my driver’s license since 2000. I thought I better get it done just to make sure it creates no problems when we turn in Joshua’s birth certificate info and my social security number doesn’t match my name. LOL! It will be a big relief to finally have that done. I can be the worst procrastinator.
We have our “Happiest Baby on the Block” class tomorrow evening. Things are all coming together. Which is good, because time is running out! Five weeks or less, people!
