I am SO excited for both of them - due date is January 25th!! It was great that we were all able to get together this weekend and be with them, too.
Being me, of course, I went with a mostly-homemade gift...
And then I just rolled some onsies around different colored socks and held them with a piece of wide, black elastic to make sushi to go along with my little fish! :) LOVE how the whole thing turned out!
Congratulations Adrienne and James!!!! <3
Since we already had everyone together this weekend for the baby shower, we decided to also try and pull of the annual Secret Santa! We matched everyone virtually (thank you Secretsanta.com!) just before Thanksgiving, and then had everyone over to my apartment later in the evening after the baby shower to open gifts!
Earlier that morning, we did a little decorating to get in the Christmas mood. Remember the Christmas Tree extravaganza from last year? Well this year I didn't want to just redo the same thing (laaaame!) but didn't really feel like buying anything new... so we improvised!
I had a vision... similar invisible-hang-from-the-ceiling kind of thing but this time using red beaded garland that I had hanging around. Brian came over early to help us decorate and volunteered to tackle the tree. I kind of briefly relayed this to him and told him to just go with it.
The end creation?
Added bonus? It's SUPER resilient! I can't even count the number of people who have walked through it, thrown pillows at it, put their jacket on into it, Just Danced at it, etc...
While Brian took care of this, Krista and I worked on the rest of the apartment. (Rob was busy making cookies...)
