Blog-Style Baby Shower!

I am so excited to welcome back my sweet blog friend, Joy! I had this idea last fall when I found out she was expecting twins, but between a move and lots of sickness - we lost touch for a few months. So, now I get the chance to host this special event for her and I'm excited!

Joy and her husband are missionaries in Indonesia and I thought it would be so much fun to give her a baby shower! I know there are lots of you out there who love Joy and her blog - so here is our opportunity to bless the socks off of her and her family. While her sweet boys are now a few months old already, they are still new to all of us!

So, let the party begin! Here's what we'll do:

* You can write Joy a note of encouragement.
* You can contribute a monetary gift which I will use to purchase things she can use.
* Or, you can do the shopping yourself and send a gift to me and I will coordinate getting the items to her.

~ Just send me an e-mail if you are interested and I will let you know how to mail things to me. There is a link to my e-mail address in the sidebar under my photo.

Since we are mailing overseas - let's work on coming up with smaller items. Some ideas of things they can use are:

* Mylicon drops
* Infant Tylenol drops
* Size six month and up clothing - onesies and cool summer outfits. It is hot there - so remember - cool clothing!

Count me in. Let me know when you need to things by or if a gift of money would be better.

I will give you money to use for the mailing of things.

This is a wonderful, wonderful idea! Thanks for including me! If you don't mind, would you send me your address? I've already bought her a few things but was waiting to mail them. I'll just send them to you instead and you can include them with the rest of the gifts! What date do you want these by? Thanks again for including me!

Hello Monica,
I love Joy, and definately would be interested. let me know how to send it to you. Thanks for letting me know.

Wonderful, thoughtful, sweet idea. Of course I'm in! Is there something (or two) that we can get Joy as well?

I would love to inclue some chocolate for Joy, but it would probably melt along the way. Any idea what else would especially minister to her?

Hi Leah, great idea - a couple of us have been thinking of ideas we could send for Joy. Let's try to think of things that she might miss from the states - I'll see if I can get any ideas from her as well...
