A Baby Shower and Christmas Card Out Takes

I get the weekend off with a baby shower. One of my dear friends is having a little boy in January and I hosted a shower along with two other co-workers for her and baby R. Her husband plays the guitar and she loves rock, so deciding on a theme was easy. A talented friend designed the invitations for us and we built everything around the "shake, rattle and roll" theme.

On Saturday, Kevin and I did some Christmas shopping and then took the boys over to his parents to visit. We ended up staying outside all afternoon and picked up pizza with my in-laws for dinner. K.C. found this stick thing off of a tree and turned it into his bat. He had a blast!

We had a relaxing day yesterday. I ran seven miles before church and after church, we just hung out all day. Our neighbor's youngest daughter and Kaden are in school together and they love playing together. It's becoming almost a daily play date for us to all get together outside. The kids have a blast.

We also took some family pictures for our Christmas card yesterday afternoon. While I wanted sunshine, I'm still happy with the way the photos turned out. Here are some out takes to brighten up your afternoon!
