We are behind on posting photos, so I'm taking the quick way out and doing a couple of photo update posts.
During my parents' visit in mid-November, we took them down to one of their favorite KC restaurants, the Jack Stack BBQ in the Freighthouse District. Before dinner, we visited the beautifully restored Union Station, which was in the process of being decorated for the holidays.
Dave & I met for our first date 4 years ago under the clock in the background of this picture.
These are a few from the fun shower that Katie threw for me. Katie and Stacey setting up the delicious food:
and the fabulous Red Wings jersey cake that Katie made. Eric was apparently providing suggestions on the appropriate number of spokes and feathers as she decorated it!
Several friends have strongly suggested keeping the twin bed in the nursery as a sanity-saving device. We weren't sure it would fit, but it seems to be okay. The baby has stuffed animals waiting for his arrival - a soft blue elephant I bought, Warren the Bear that Dave brought back from the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholders' meeting, and Georgie, the stuffed dog that belonged to Jerry and Dave as children.
The nursery is pretty much set up now, so more photos will be coming!
