Baby Shower


I finally got the pictures from Jeff this morning! I know most of you were there, but I wanted to share some anyway. The theme was Take Me Out to the Ball Game, very appropriate for Jeff and me. My mom and sisters completely outdid themselves! And I think it is fair to say that everyone had a good time.


The menu was Fenway Franks, Clam Chowdah, and Loaded Nachos. Then of course, for dessert, the baseball cupcakes complete with licorice lacing - yes, they were mildly crazed. I have to imagine that the lacing took near as long as baking the cupcakes! But they sure were yummy!


For games, you got to guess which candy bar was melted inside the diaper. It looked pretty much like the real thing... gross!! And then there was the catcher, that Tracey and Dad made.

And finally - just a shot of Jeff and me. I am 28 weeks and 5 days here! He is pretending he will be in that position at the birth, but this is the guy who gets queasy from a blood draw. Shh! Don't tell that I told :)

Germany

Sorry everyone! We have been traveling, so I have slacked on the blog. We were in Germany during the second week of last month. Jeff worked, worked, worked... but I got to play. It was pretty chilly there around 4 degrees celcius. But it is always a great trip. We stay in a very nice Bed and Breakfast, where we are now friends of the owners. http://www.zumaltenbrunnen.de/englisch/index_englisch.htm

We had a GREAT rental car. It was a BMW 3 series with something called the I-knob. It controlled the climate, radio, navigation and connection to your cell. Definitely state of the art!

Here is a shot of a wind turbine from the sunroof of our car. Scary how close they are to the road, huh? Now you know why Jeff has to keep an eye on failures! You wouldn't want those blades falling onto a passing car!

One of Jeff in the kegel bowling lane at the Lucke Hotel. Kegel is sort of a combo between bowling and skeeball. There are 9 pins and they are on marionette strings. You bowl with a holeless, small ball and the lane is hourglass. Very fun, but unfortunately, my center of gravity is a bit off these days, so I wasn't able to play!Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And finally, me at 27 weeks and 3 days in our room.Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

I will post more later in the week. As soon as Jeff gets home from Greenville, I can get the shower pictures. Take care all!
