Ana put so much work into the party, decorations, cupcakes (I had 3), chocolate bars with paper wrapping on them saying "In Anticipation of Willow!", etc.! And Little Caesar's Pizza (my fav!).
Pretty surprising to walk into Ana's house to see my brother and his fiance! It was a small gathering, but the love and care that went into everything was just astounding.
As for the gifts--I got a toy chest filled with some really funny onesies and other outfits (none too girly, thank you very much) and a Baby Calendar and a Gift Certificate for Babies R Us--which I promptly used that evening!
Some funny onesies (there are more--she's going to be quite witty!).
The girliest outfit. And yes, Ana, I will let her wear it.
Less girlie outfit from my brother and his fiance. The pooh socks from Ana.
With some toys (I gotta go down to the basement and find some of Michael's old toys--another project for maternity leave)
The nursery (looking kinda messy--the car seat is in there). The glider is Michael's old one. He got a used glider in his room...well, actually, we bought a used glider for the nursery, but Michael found it was bigger and more comfy and claimed it--I let him win that battle--Heck, he's the big brother, after all!
Another angle of nursery.
The travel system and car seat assembled. We all learned how to buckle Cthullu in...
