Cora’s First Easter

Family Photo
Happy Easter from the DeSmidts!

This was our first Easter (and holiday) with baby Cora.  I am thankful we had this holiday to adjust to being a family of 4 before we took on trying to celebrate a holiday with ALL of our families.   Don’t get me wrong, it would have been wonderful to have seen everyone but I think I would have collapsed from exhaustion.

Surprise Baby Shower

Baby shower guestsOh my gosh – I am so incredibly blessed!  My boss just threw me the best surprise baby shower.

I wasn’t planning on having a baby shower because most of our family and friends live out of state so I figured we would have a “meet the baby” party sometime in summer.  I have to say I am so glad I got the experience of having a baby shower after all.

Happy Holidays

Christmas Card
We’re “expecting” 2017 to be a great year!

Alex and I made the decision to spend another Christmas in Rapid City.  It would have been hard to take a long vacation before the end of the year and right before one of my major fashion shows at work.  Furthermore, driving 12 hours one-way while majorly pregnant in the snow and ice did not sound like fun.  We promise we will try to make a trip to Wisconsin in summer so everyone can meet the baby.
