I have been so ill this past month (strep, sinus infection, kidney stone and kidney infection), that the only party throwing I managed for the big day was dinner with them and our little family. Also, they were already scheduled to go to my sister's house by the time I scheduled with them, so our time with them and our access to extended family was limited.
Laura loved helping me plan and prep for the party - especially because the recipients were two of her favorite people in the whole world - and did a great job keeping it a secret from Grandma and Grandpa. (The decor was all golden yellow and we had streamers!) Sara learned how to say "Happy Nursery" and dished out lots of hugs. I got to break out my new dishes - aren't they fabulous how easily they are customized to any party occasion?! And Jason made ribs in his new smoker. It was simple, but a good party and I hope it made them feel loved. And I was still feeling sick enough to forget to take any pictures of the occasion - doh - but here is a recreate (since I still had the papers) of the dishes!
