Last weekend we were blessed with a virtual baby shower hosted by Matt's mom in Oklahoma. Crazy what technology allows us to do. We had his sister in Phoenix, 2 other ladies in Ohio and Iowa along with all the others in Oklahoma join us in our living room in Anchorage.
It was my first experience with a virtual shower. The invitations were beautiful (hand made by Matt's Aunt, sorry I don't have a picture) and had instructions on to ship the gifts directly to us in Anchorage. I am still amazed at how kind and generous people are! We are so very blessed! We have had to purchase very little in preparation for Madelyn - I haven't bought a single outfit (ok, maybe I broke and bought the cutest little dress a couple weeks ago that I cannot wait to dress her in!) - and I think we'll have enough clothes, books, toys, etc for her entire first year of life.
