My husband and I were extremely touched yesterday to receive an absolutely beautiful gift for the baby we are expecting any day now. It's a homemade colors felt book for our little one, apparently in the works since February! Isn't it gorgeous? The pages are pictured slightly out of order, sorry!

Thank you so much Melissa, LQ, Sharon, Tracey, Katie, Mollie, Andrea, Cate, Mary, Liz, Linda, Katie, and Anna for putting this together! Special thanks to LQ, whose idea it was, and to Mary and Mel for coordinating and assembling. I had no idea you were all scheming up such a delightful present. When Mel asked for my address, I thought she was just going to send me an Avalanche jersey as we are residents of Red Wings Country. I have never been happier to be wrong!
Timing wise, UPS delivered the package in the middle of a small belated birthday party for my sister so I was extra amused that the enclosed card congratulated us on our "new and improved family!" Ha! Fortunately, my sister had already opened our present so I didn't have to compete with the Flannel Friday crew. Thank goodness.
I want to apologize because I didn't realize how many people were waiting to hear that we received the package as Mel informed everyone it would be arriving yesterday. I was just going to put this post up. So, sorry! After I finally told Mel, she sent me the Google Document where this little band of international schemers had been planning for four months!
Once again, thank you ladies so much! I have loved being your virtual colleague. It has been a privilege and an honor!
