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.
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!
