My baby shower at Sue's house

What an absolutely gorgeous baby shower my friends from church hosted for me and baby Isaac on February 25, about a month before my due date.  The event was on a perfect Saturday afternoon at Sue's house, and she had some help from Summer, Sierra, Cheryl (who left early before I could get her picture taken with us!), and Elizabeth (whom I also didn't get a picture of unfortunately) and Jill.

Here's my baby bump at 8 months pregnant!

Cheryl decorated all these darling little Onesies t-shirts with appliqued neckties and bow ties to use for the shower banners, so Isaac is all set for adorable undershirts!  It seems like that must be the trend because he got some bibs and a couple of other gifts with the neck tie look, which is simply adorable!
Every detail of the party was so festive and colorful in kiwi green, turquoise, blue and brown, including some of the hostesses.  They were so cute to do that! Summer noted that often when I host parties, I try to match the decor, so they did the same and I loved it!

Here are Marilyn, me, and Julie, above, and Jill, below.  Elizabeth sewed all these cute little necktie party favors for each guest to wear on their blouse or sweater, and Jill passed them out at the door.
There were so many people there, but I didn't have my camera out during the shower to take pictures and hope to get some from Tracey, my friend who is due the same time as me with her second child.  Anyway, I was spoiled and got all kinds of wonderful gifts for the baby including clothes in a variety of sizes, diapers, blankets, toys, bathtime essentials, children's books, and more.  I really felt loved by all my awesome friends, mainly from church. There were a couple of my former work associates there, but everyone else was the LDS crowd.  Thank you so, so much for your kindness, love, and support.  I could really feel everyone's enthusiasm and excitement for this darling baby who will be joining our family in about two weeks!

I figured I'd better add to your collection of comments by Julie--looks like a perfect shower. I am so looking forward to little Isaac's appearance! (probably not more than you are though!)
Such a beautiful celebration! And you totally deserve it! The parties you've thrown have always been amazing so I'm glad you were given an amazing one as well. Can't wait to see him!

Fun with Ninnies and Nini

Our family got to attend the monthly stake temple day at the Taipei temple on Saturday.   Lindsey and Christopher did their temple work, then waited outside on the beautiful grounds and at the chapel next door until we were finished with our session. After that, we enjoyed hamburgers at a place we heard about called California Grill, then did some exploring.
Lindsey arrived last week from Rexburg, completing 32 credit hours and her first year of college at Brigham Young University-Idaho. We are so glad to have her home with us!  She will be with us until she starts school again in September and will be taking two classes online in the meantime.  In addition to Lindsey's arrival, we've been blessed to have the company of 7-year-old Nini (her real name is Yeh Min-Yu) with us this week.  She's so darling and we love having her around too.  It's kind of funny that when Lindsey was a little toddler and she could not say her name well, she called herself Ninnies.  So we h…

Isaac's creation

One year ago today, this little angel came into our world, sent directly from heaven, without a doubt.  Isaac is our fourth child, but the first that I gave birth to.  He was the result of a successful fertility treatment called In Vitro Fertilization (IVF), our first and only attempt.  The fact that I was 48 years old when I got pregnant, is a miracle in and of itself.  I had long since given up the idea of ever being able to experience pregnancy and childbirth after having been diagnosed with unexplained infertility, until a rare contact from a dear friend had renewed my desire.  This is the story of how Isaac came to be, and the loving environment that welcomed him.  Take note of the numerous small miracles along the way, leading up to our pursuing this dream.

There was a three-week window of opportunity when our family had come to our Austin home for the holidays, while we were living in Taiwan for one year.  My long, lost friend sent us a beautiful Christmas card, perhaps the fi…

Class of 2030 first day of school

First day of kindergarten was a huge hit!
The only thing that went wrong, other than arriving to school a few hours late due to our flight from Denver and no sleep the night before from seeing the 2017 American solar eclipse in Casper, Wyoming, was losing two small, black buttons from his brand new blue and gray plaid Hurley shirt.
My little boy started kindergarten and I'm so excited for the freedom it will give me while he's away at school, but especially I'm glad for the fun times he will have in learning and being with new friends.  He was so ready and excited!  I didn't know any of the kindergarten teachers at the school, but after meeting Mrs. C, I'm so glad we got her!  Her body language and introduction to Isaac were so sweet and made him feel safe, loved and welcome.
I ordered this fun and festive balloon from ATXBubbles and they delivered it to our front door.  Isaac loved his after school surprise.
He picked out this backpack because the inside says &quo…
