Ok - well, in line with everything that has gone on these past 2 1/2 months, we are throwing together a spontaneous baby shower for Claire! We were supposed to have a baby shower on Oct. 1st, Oct. 2nd, and Oct. 16th. But with Claire's early arrival, we were unable to have any of them! So before she comes home (hopefully soon) we thought we needed to have something for her.
Because when Claire comes home, we will be on strict "lock down" as far as visitors go and as far as us going places. With it being the height of flu and cold season, we cannot risk spreading germs with Claire. So we figured we had to do something now if we were going to do anything at all!
So here's the plan - this Saturday, December 11th from 11 to 3, you are welcome to come to our home to visit, see Claire's nursery, or drop off a gift (if you had already purchased one for one of the showers). Or maybe you have already dropped your gift off, or your helped with the ham dinner or BLAST dinner, or you have helped in any other way including prayer - you are also welcome to stop by and get a bite to eat and visit!
If you need directions to our house, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Anita at 252-224-9121. Also, if you read this and plan to come, please let one of us know too if possible so we can plan on food. It's a floating shower/party so feel free to drop by any time between 11 and 3.
Everyone has done so much for us already - we don't expect anything else. But we have had a lot of people ask when they could bring by gifts for Claire, so we figured this was the best way to get it done in such a short time. We totally understand that it's a busy time of the year and many of you will not be able to make it.
Thanks for your understanding and we hope to see you there!
The Scott Family
