The Presents

Well, since Jen would like to see the gifts that we got, I figured I would take some pictures. We got TONS of stuff!! I actually had to leave some stuff at my mom's house because we couldn't fit it all in our car (P.S., We are going to have to buy a bigger car...three car seats will not fit in our Sonata). Anyway, I just can't believe how generous people are. Amongst all of the clothes and other baby supplies, we had people give us 2 matching cribs, a twin boppy, a bouncer, a swing, and other people gave us money, which we were able to buy two car seats and a double stroller with. Honestly, we are SO blessed to be around such giving people!

Here is all of the stuff that we were able to fit in our car (Hannah was squashed amongst it all in the back seat). Actually, I found two more bags of new clothes after I took this picture, so this picture doesn't contain everything.
I wanted to take individual pictures of some of the homemade items because they are adorable. Scott's cousin-in-law, Haley, made these blankets, burp cloths, and bows to match the two outfits.

My cousin-in-law, Cortney, made these adorable pillows for Bailey and Brynn, which are going to match perfect with their bedroom.

My mom made these cute burp cloths and bibs.

My step grandma made this beautiful blanket.

Scott's aunt Janette made these adorable sweaters.

No one made this onesie, but I thought it was hilarious because if these babies have even an inkling of Price genes in them, they are definitely going to have big butts (or "Peaches," "EGGBs", "Ghetto Booty," "Bubble Butt," or "Huge Heinies" as some of us Prices have been called. Ok, I'm kidding about the "Huge Heinies" one, but yes, people have called us the other ones and many other names that aren't appropriate).

There were a few other homemade items that I didn't get pictures of. My sister-in-law, Jill, and Scott's aunt Frances made some adorable blankets that I couldn't fit in our car. My mom will bring up all of the items that we weren't able to bring.

Here are a few other pictures from our trip:

There were a few days that the temperature got into the 90s while we were in Cali. Hannah and I decided to take a dip in the pool on one of those days. She loved swimming by herself with those floaties on.

Yeah...I don't think I've ever seen my daughter this dirty before.

Above is my niece, Sam, and Hannah.

Hannah and I were also able to enjoy a night and day with my friend Stacy and her daughter Montana. We went to this really fun place that had a ton of bounce houses. The girls had a lot of fun! I had a lot of fun too but thought I was going to go into labor with all of the bouncing and climbing that I was doing.

Anyway, overall it was an awesome trip! Scott was able to come down for the last 4 days of it, which made it even better.

Wow! Those babies are going to be the best dressed babies in town! Everything is so cute--love all the homeade goodies. The diaper bags are adorable. Baby gear just keeps getting cuter. Makes me want to have another one just for the gear.

That onesie is hilarious! The butt comments took me down memory lane. I'll always remember my nickname, "Huns" and David would add, with the big fat buns. I also remember walking the halls at EGHS and someone grabbed my butt on more than one occasion...I'd turn around and it would be a bunch of guys pretending like nobody did it. And just be glad the song, "I like big butts and I cannot lie" didn't come out when you were in highschool.
Anyways, I'm glad you got lot's of stuff-- you'll need it.

Good luck putting it all away! I'm sure you will figure out a way to organize everything, it will be a good challenge! That onesie shows that Aunt Peg still has a good sense of humor. Believe me, you guys say it is the Price rear end, butt (hee hee) it comes from the Italian side of the family because I had it too. As you get older, it kind of minimizes. I was teased and pinched in high school as well. So be proud of it! It's part of your heritage. :)

It was so good to have you all here! Thanks for letting Hannah stay the night with me! We had such a fun time - I can't wait to see her again. I hope that I will love Bailey and Brynn as much as I love Hannah....I worry about that but my sisters tell me not to worry...the love for those new little ones will just happen. Hannah will always be my special girl as my first grandchild-she stole my heart on day one, and has a tight hold on it still! I am so grateful to you Maran for being so willing to get these little ones here. I see that it is difficult for you, and I appreciate your are a wonderful mother and wife, and Scott is one lucky guy to have found you. You are truly a blessing to all of us. Love to all - Julia

I am glad everything went so well, looks like you guys are ready! I especially like those little pillows, maybe I'll have to make some for our baby boy, so cute!
