Fall is still in the air. Though I've heard that it is supposed to be more summer like tomorrow, I just can't imagine that as I look out my window now. Today is our first day of our first full year of homeschooling. We are all excited, and a bit sad to see summer end. Wish us luck! Yesterday, one of my best friends had her second child. He is just so precious! Baby Benjamin arrived at 11:30am at a whopping 9 pounds 7 ounces! Everyone is happy and healthy, and they should be on their way home this morning. It was just a few short weeks ago when I was throwing a baby shower for baby Ben - so today I thought I'd share his shower invitation. I am hoping to finish up his announcements today, maybe I will share those tomorrow.
For the shower, I decided to try and use up some of the retired stuff I have. Stampin' up! just retired about thirty colors from their palette at the end of june, and I still have a decent stock of all 30 of those colors. We went with a Safari theme, in close to cocoa, taken with teal, certainly celery, (which is thankfully not retired!) and a little bit of chocolate chip. Please excuse the nice patterned gum wrapper that is covering up my address and phone number. LOL
