Surprise! It's a Baby Shower!


A certain Spontaneous Clapper, actually The Spontaneous Clapper is having a baby!

I can't begin to tell you how overwhelmed with excitement I was when I came home one day to find a post from Dandy, announcing she was pregnant! I'm pretty sure I jumped up and down for five minutes, all the while screaming I knew it, I knew it! You see Dandy is a reliable blogger, unlike yours truly, and when she had posted sporadically for a few weeks, I thought to myself...'Gee, I wonder if that girl is pregnant?' Ha!

Simply put I just love this girl that I've come to know through blogging and I know for a fact that I'm not the only one.  She's made me cry, like the post about how her Dad saved two cigars on the day she was born so he could share one with her future husband on her wedding day. She's made me laugh as she talked about trying to herd the wrong children at Disneyland. She's made me wonder if there is any combination of foods she hasn't tried? She's freaked me out with marzipan babies. And, she's filled my craving of soft, sweet beagle ears many a time!

Very soon she and her husband will be holding their newborn son in their arms, in awe of the miracle that he is and in wonder of all that he will become, as his life journey begins before their eyes. There isn't a couple out there that I could be more happier and delighted to see become parents. This little Peanut is very lucky and I just can't wait to meet him!

So, while we all wait, this is a photo of the print that is on it's way to Peanut's house to decorate his room.


Love indeed makes a family.

From one family bonded by love in this old farmhouse to another far across the continent in sunny California, we wish you a lifetime of happiness together as a family.


~Remember the love friends~

This was seriously so much fun to do an internet baby shower. I got to give a gift and I didn't have to get dressed up and go someplace. SCORE!

I can hardly wait to see pictures of The Peanut. He is going to be beautiful

Lol, I think it's hilarious you knew something was up when I stopped my reliable blogging. I was just so darn tired! I'm fascinated by the posts you like and so completely taken by this whole internet shower.

I absolutely love that print. I found it on etsy over a year ago and I know exactly where it is going.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can't even believe how lucky I am to have a friend like you!

So precious!! Nothing like reading to your babies. I still read to mine, and they are 9 and 7... I bet I'll get to keep that up for a while too!

Blessings,
Sasha
