A baby shower!!

The Lord is good!!!!!

We're not "rich" by worldly standards. We ARE rich in the Lord, but sometimes needing "stuff" to function in this life is a necessity and we need "stuff" for Elizabeth when she finally gets to come home.

This past Saturday, our church family gave us a baby shower and BOY did they shower on the gifts!!!! I was in awe as I saw the the mountain of presents for our baby!!!! I feel like the Lord has spoiled us to pieces- He gives us salvation, He gives us Elizabeth, and now He makes sure she has things she needs. How GREAT of the Lord to provide like this!!!!

I have to tell you, though, of all the gifts that we have received, my FAVORITE gift was the sweet bunny slippers in the photo!!! Aren't they just BEYOND adorable!!!!!

Also, a lady in the church made us this incredible diaper "cake"!!!! Can you get over it!?? I counted and there are 90, yes NINETY diapers all rolled up and stacked on top of each other. Plus she "decorated" the cake with lots of sweet baby things all around the cake- hair bands and bows, socks, bath scrunchies, bunny rabbit on top (complete with bunny slippers to match!!!). It was lovely!!!

Now... I'm off to try to straighten up Elizabeth's room. It's amazing to me how a little bitty girl who is on the other side of the world can have such a messy bedroom already!! Haha!!!

EDIT- For another EXCELLENT example of a diaper "cake", please visit Susan's blog, A Place Called Home.

This is so wonderful how God is truly providing for your family!I was to a baby shower this past Saturday and the centerpiece was one of those diaper cakes. So cute! I had seen them before but I still think it's an adorable way to give a very practical gift!

Oh Mrs. U, I am so happy for you! Precious beyond words. I bet you are imagining your new little "sweetie" wearing them:) Love the diaper cake, too! I made one for my niece, too! If you want to see it I think it was the second post I did.

There was one of those neat diaper cakes at a shower I attended recently, as well. It sure made a hit! Those are so very clever. I would love to make one sometime.

(when I was born, someone made one out of cloth diapers in a cake plate for my mom. but that was a l o n g time ago!) :)
