Heading Home

Howdy, Everyone!
Well, The family is on the road again and heading for home. Finally we can shower them with gifts and celebrate the arrival of Ali and Mark's little baby girl.... so, get online to Babies R Us and find that perfect gift for our newest member in our little piece of humanity. They should be arriving in FL by the end of the week...

Check the original post for the registry information.

The theme is "Pretty in Pink." Books, clothes, toys, bibs, blankets...I know that some items on the registry are NOT pink, so be creative! Have fun...

If you have a photo of the item (or of yourself) to share, please let me know, and I will post it to the blog, so the Strachans can see it (you) and have a record of everything that will be coming...

Otherwise share your thoughts, words of motherly and fatherly wisdom, or a favorite baby thought or memory by posting a comment to this blog. If you don't want to create an account, just shoot me an email and I will post it on your behalf....

Have fun shopping and coming up with your pink item!

Zoe Susan was born at 5:05am at 8.3lbs. Ali and Mark were able to be present and participate in the birth. Mark even cut the cord! They are ecstatic! Here are the photos mark sent via cell phone...We'll keep you posted on the next step for the shower portion of this blog! Enjoy the photos!

Ali has requested that everyone please wait to send gifts to FL because there is no one available to sign for packages and hold them until they return...We'll keep you posted on when we can start shopping!

We are also thinking about choosing a date/time when we can either email a photo/link or call Ali and Mark to share with them the items we purchased from their registry. If anyone has done a virtual party/shower, please feel free to share any ideas or thoughts about how we can best connect with them from a distance.

We are also thinking about a theme...maybe it'll be everything nice like sugar and spice OR book bag OR photo album. Whatever that is, we'll also let you know...

Ciao for now,
