My coworker Susie is lending us this book for Baby. It is a cute story and I can't wait to read it to our daughter.

We met our friends Joe and Rina at The Palace Grill for dinner this evening. We met them through Ted's cousin Edward, and we really enjoy their company, so we try and get together every few months. After dinner they gave us spun honey made with cranberries. I can't wait to try it on toast or biscuits tomorrow morning.

What a wonderful evening we had. My coworkers and friends Kitty, Francee, Sharon, and Cynthia threw Baby an amazing baby shower this evening. About 40 of my coworkers attended to help us celebrate the upcoming arrival of Baby. It is overwhelming and humbling to be surrounded by so many people who support us and are looking forward to the arrival of our daughter almost as much as we are.

Today was the annual SBHRA holiday luncheon. I was part of the planning committee and overall I think the event was a success. We collected nonperishable food and toys for the Unity Shoppe. We also raised over $1500 to donate to the Unity Shoppe.

We received this holiday themed bookmark from the World Wildlife Federation this evening. As much as I enjoy receiving bookmarks and calendars I hope they don't spend too much of the money they receive in donations on gifts for donors. Ted did say the last time he mailed in a donation the donation card asked what type of gift he wanted as a thank you for his donation and he checked "no gift" so I guess the bookmark is the low cost thank you gift.

We don't usually shop at Albertsons but Ted happened to stop by their the other day and they gave him a game board and game pieces. They have lots of fun prizes to win so we decided to shop their a few more times to see what we might win. Nothing I'm sure but it's kind of fun to play.

Ted and I are staring to work on Baby's nursery and we went to Home Depot yesterday to look at paint samples. We are not going to paint the nursery pink; we've decided to go with a more neutral color for her nursery.
