So, when you tell people that you’re living in a hotel, it’s pretty common to get some sort of comment about how relaxing that must be. Yes, hotels are relaxing. When you are on vacation. As a home, not so much. Don’t get me wrong, we are so thankful for our temporary home (especially since we recently relocated thanks to a lower rate and now get amazing continental breakfast), but we’ve also been pretty busy trying to find a permanent solution. I’ll give updates later, but for now, I’m just explaining the total boring state of the blog as of late.
Just so I don’t get too behind on things, I thought I’d share some pictures from a super sweet shower that was thrown for us by the Angle family about a month ago.
We all gathered at Zach’s sister’s house in Greensboro, and had a great time catching up and opening presents for the little guy.
My mother-in-law and sisters-in-law did a great job of putting together some delicious treats for everyone to enjoy.
Zach’s aunt, a former PE teacher (his grandma also used to be a PE teacher- it’s sort of a family legacy), did a great job of leading us in some super fun games. We did some Bible baby trivia and old wives’ tale trivia, both which I didn’t fare so well on.
Everyone also got a chance to cut a piece of ribbon that they guessed would be the circumference of my belly. There were some loooong pieces being cut. ;)
While helping to set up for the shower, Zach’s dad cut his hand on a drink dispenser that shattered and ended up getting seven stitches. That’s one great granddaddy- already making sacrifices for his grandson! Thankfully, he made it back from the urgent care in time to see everyone.
We were so thankful for so many wonderful gifts and such great encouragement- this is certainly one blessed little baby!
