YoP Post # 28

I'm a bit late with my Sunday Post but Super Bowl Sunday is sort of a tradition around here :). I cooked for hours! Homemade KFC Honey BBQ Wings and Pizza with a side of Seasoned Fries also homemade. My team won! Yay! Now now don't get too upset. I don't actually know much about football. I just let Eddie pick a team and then root against him. I won last year too :)

About 7 Months Along
This is my sister. We've also been planning her Baby Shower this week. We got really lucky. I watch the Freecycle network and someone posted baby boy stuff and we got to go and pick the stuff up. Let me tell you everything was in beautiful condition. We (meaning She) had almost none of the things she needed. Now she has a stroller, carseat, swing, bouncer, and baby tub. Plus they wrote me a second time and said they had found a Playpen too. Now instead of asking people for a couple more expensive things she can ask for lots of the little things like a diaper bag, bottles, diapers, shampoo, powders and all the other small things people usually don't think of. We we're very blessed.

Cowboy Up!
This is what I've made for the shower. A cowboy set. I already gave her a baby blanket. We sent the people we got the baby stuff from a picture of my sister with all of it and they were very happy to see that it went to someone who didn't sell it but really needed it. Now since they gave us the Pen too I thought I would make them a Cowgirl set and send it to them. They have a 10 month old baby girl (which is why they didn't need the baby boy stuff anymore) and they said they would send me another e-mail when their oldest sons son out grows it. He was born last April which if my sisters babe is born on time will make him almost exactly a year older.

As you can see I've been really busy so the Cowboy Set is really the only thing I worked on. I didn't want to stress my arm too much but I really needed to get it done Now because the Shower is coming up soon.

Absolutely love the cowboy hat! What a great find on FreeCycle. It's nice to see good things put to use.

What a score for your sister! Yeah, baby stuff costs a lot not to mention takes up a lot of room. Good that someone who will love and use it for her baby picked it all up.
What a cute baby set.

Hooray for reusing stuff that is still in good condition. Baby stuff is outrageously priced--especially considering how long you use it for! Your cowboy set is darling--your sister is lucky to have you!
