Baby Shower Gifts

It's crazy. My little cousins are all grown up and now some of them are having babies. Yes it makes me feel very very old. My cousin Christopher & Aerica are having thier first baby next month and my Aunt and Uncle threw them a very awesome baby shower last weekend. It was a packed house.


As always it was wonderful to see all my family together under one roof.

So what do you get a young and hip couple expecting their first baby? They had registered for all the usual baby items, but with a family has gigantic as mine they had those things covered. Since they had a name for the little man picked out I thought a photo gift. So a few weeks ago, armed with my camera in Palm Springs I found as many letters from signs as I could to make up the name Sylus. I found out the nursery colors and viola.....


The letters are from:
S= Willimas Sinoma
Y= my cars license plate
L= a little hole in the wall Mexican restaurant
U= Banana Republic
S= Sammys Firewood Pizza

So that and a pair of black and white baby Puma's I think we ended up with a great gift!
