GIRLS' NIGHT WITH LIZZIE

Spring really has been full of so many good things, one of my favorite being the arrival and adoption of baby Lizzie.  We wanted to celebrate her and shower Christy with a few more fun things, so we came up with a special night that was hosted this past Friday.  What a gift it is to walk through life and motherhood with these women - I am richly blessed!

My sis, Ellen was kind enough to design invites for us on the fly based on the nursery colors Christy is using.

We had a yummy spread full of sweet and savory treats and drinks.

(nobody ate the diaper cake, but it was a fun touch.)

Everyone passed Lizzie around who spent time being a delightfully cuddly baby, sleeping and eating.

The evening passed in a blur of talking, eating, laughing and Christy opening gifts.  (She's not expressive at all😂.)

I have not yet gotten over how trippy it is to see glimmers of my children in one of my bestie's kids.

Isn't she a doll?  So far, we see a lot of William with some hints of Violet and Maya and Quinn as well.  She is just precious!

We sent everyone on their way with donuts, though I didn't get a great pic of them wrapped up.

It was truly a wonderful night with some of nearest and dearest celebrating all that God has done!
