Date Night

Even though I am ready to have this baby, I'm so glad that she's held off making her entrance into the world. :) I've had a few activities that I've wanted to have happen before the baby arrives.

-This past weekend a friend threw me a baby shower with some of my mommy friends from T-moms, we had a fun time celebrating together.

-My parents have been on a two week crusing vacation celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary (which is actually in March, but since that's when Elliana is due to arrive they decided to move it up so they'd be home!) They just returned home on Monday evening. I know my mom really wanted to be home for Ellie's arrival and I'm glad they made it back in time!

-Yesterday Hylke had a big night at JH as they lauched their new name, Elevate. The launch party was awesome and they had about 120 students come to celebrate!

-And finally, tonight my dear friend Kelly has offered to take Noah OVERNIGHT so that Hylke and I can have one last night together before Elliana arrives. We're going to go out to dinner and then do whatever else we want to do and not worry about when we get home (not that it'll be very late...:)). One of the things I'm most looking forward to is laying in bed tomorrow morning...just being lazy!! I'd say that I'm looking forward to sleeping in, but chances are, I won't be able to sleep. But, I will certainly be able to lay in bed and rest. This is only the second time that we've left Noah over night (not b/c we haven't wanted to, just hasn't worked out). The only other time we left him was when we went to a pastors and wives retreat...not really a relaxing time away. :) Needless to say, I'm glad that we're going to be able to spend this night at home together, and not in the hospital. Although there are a couple more events this weekend (it is Valentine's Day weekend, of course) I think that this was the last BIG event I wanted her to hold off for. :) I figure if she comes after tomorrow we'll both be well rested and ready for her. haha.

I'll try to remember to take a picture tonight to document our last date night before the baby arrives.
