Today we were able to celebrate my baby boy-to-be Everett at the historic courthouse in downtown McKinney. It was a wonderful time with friends and family and we are so blessed to be able to bring our baby boy into such a love filled group! Sometimes it is so easy to feel alone in parenthood. You’re the only one who’s child sometimes acts like a brat. You’re the only one who feels overwhelmed at the idea of having two children under one. You’re the only one who is exhausted and sleep deprived. It is always nice to sit surrounded by friends and family that love you, many of whom have felt exactly how you feel.
We had so much fun decorating the venue and putting Everett’s cute little tee-pee on display! Then, in true Kendall fashion, I bought too much food (haha). We had taco soup, 3 charcuterie boards, a build-your-own trail mix bar, sangria, and 2 cakes. FAR too much food, but thank heavens for leftovers. We’ll be eating well for weeks (and my lucky coworkers will get cake on Monday – if its in my house I’ll eat it all…so ill take it to work).
The decor was so fun! Very light and earthly with lots of vines, moss, ivy, twinkle lights, and (of course) we provided crowns & flower crowns to accessorize with. LOL.
I had a wonderful time with everyone and feel so lucky for the generous gift we received from friends and family. Having a baby can seem overwhelming but there are definitely some items with Kenz that we found were VERY helpful in mitigating the worst parts of a newborn. Luckily we’ll have them for Baby E.
Thanks again to everyone who came out! it was a LONG day (I’m currently in PJs laying in bed counting down the moments until I can curl up and go to sleep) but I’m so thankful!!
