Thank you Columbus Ave youth and families!

So seriously, we have the best youth group and church family in town! :) They so sweetly wanted to throw a little welcoming party for Bennett.

Here is the invite they sent out:
They generously did so much fun stuff and families showered Bennett with diapers, wipes, clothes, towels, toys and lots of Astros gear. (Josh was of course, so pumped with the Astros goodies!)

Here are some pics from the evening:

Playing fun shower games...
Guess the melted candy bar in the diaper...looks so real huh?

He looks so dark skinned here doesn't he?? wonder if that'll stay...
Typical Jackson these days...not cooperating for pictures.
Look at all these fun goodies - couldn't believe it! Wow!

Jackson having a ball with the big always!
I will say, i was pooped afterwards...and again, sweating like a pig (have i mentioned that before?? hormonal sweats right?? good lord!)
God was so good bc i was nervous about Bennett's feeding schedule for the evening, AND all the kids holding Bennett, i was praying for the germies to stay away! But he ate right before we left and was good until the very end of the shower...we rushed home to feed him, and i had all the kids used Germ-X before holding him, ha ha. Thank you Lord, you worked it all out.

We feel so undeserving of the loved poured out to us, thank you Columbus youth and families for taking such great care of your own.

More soon...
