Storybook Baby Shower

Storybook Baby Shower (5)

This past weekend I threw another shower, this time a baby shower, with Jeanette (again 🙂 ) and our friend Wendy.  It was for our friend Megan, who Jeanette and I knew from our days in the singles ward, and she and her husband just moved into our ward a few months ago.  Jeanette, Wendy and I decided to do a children’s book theme because we all love books.  We wanted lots and lots of books to use to decorate with… but I have very few children’s books… it was a good thing Jeanette and Wendy had so many! 🙂   Megan’s nursery colors are blue, green and yellow, so we used those colors where possible, but it was all pretty colorful with the different books.  I loved all of the different colors with the white.  We threw in a bunch of toys and sort of book themed items in with the books, along with some colorful flowers.

Wendy made these adorable story book themed painted onesies.  I was amazed how detailed they were.  I especially loved the cow jumping over the moon.  And the apple with the worm.  And the Once Upon a Time.  Ok they were all really cute.

Video: Our Trip to Orlando

For Christmas Vu bought me a new camera and one of the features it has is video.  I was so excited about this because I have been interested in taking video’s of our vacations and things for a few years now.  I was able to try it out on our trip to Orlando and then I spent the last 2 weeks figuring out how to get the footage that I had taken into a video I could share.  I have really enjoyed learning about this.  However, I am very, very aware that I have A LOT to learn.  Despite the very obvious flaws I can see in this video I still really love it, it is so fun to be able to relive our vacation a little bit.  And I can’t wait to continue to improve my skills.  Especially for my trip to Europe in May. 🙂

You can tell I really love fireworks too! 🙂 For the ones at Epcot (with the lake), the spot we were watching them from had a firework go off right in front of us.  It really surprised me the first time.  You can see it a couple of times in the video.

Also, I didn’t learn how to choose the quality of image recorded until after I got back… so yeah… that could be better.  Next time!
