We’ve Been Sprinkled :)

We have had the sweetest “Sprinkles” over the past few weeks & our house is finally starting to look like a baby GIRL is arriving thanks to all the wonderful PINK things from sweet family & friends.  For those who may be wondering, a “sprinkle” is a small version of a baby shower when it is not your first child :)

A few of my sweet friends in Jacksonville hosted a Sprinkle in the beginning of March for Grace & we had a great time!

Yummy food & adorable decorations!

I forgot to take a lot of pictures, guess I was too busy having fun & chatting with the girls – usually when we get together we are distracted by dirty diapers, fussy toddlers, and temper tantrums!  It was so nice to just get to relax, enjoy some great food & talk :)

Thank you again to Whitney, Angela & Cherie!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, a few months back on our last trip to Pensacola before Grace arrives, Son’s family threw the sweetest surprise Sprinkle for me :)  We had a blast & everything was so beautiful!

Yummy Vietnamese food – everything was pink & green!!  Son’s mom made my favorite – spring rolls with peanut sauce!

The cake was so yummy with strawberry filling and said “A Baby is A Precious Gift” – so true!  And my SIL Kim made this adorable diaper cake.

We played the “guess how big Julie is” game – always a good laugh!

Lilo had fun helping me open Grace’s presents – she really liked this stuffed frog from our cousin Tam.  It was one of my favorites too – so soft & cuddly :)
