Awesome Baby Shower
The baby shower yesterday given by my friends was really awesome. Words can't begin to describe how grateful I am for the love, hard work, and time that was put into making this happen. This picture is of the lovely hostesses, from the left, Jill, Heather, Tiffany, me, Tabatha, and Vanissa. The shower was at Vanissa's house. She had the house set up very nicely for the shower. Everything really looked great. The food was wonderful. Mom brought the cake, red velvet, yummmm. The girls did such a great job. I hope I can at least take them to dinner one night soon to thank them. Then, if all of the hard work wasn't enough, they all pitched in to buy the biggest thing on my registry, the huge montrosity of a stroller/car seat combo! Wow! I'm very blessed to have such great friends. And Chesley is blessed to have so many wonderful people ready to take him in and love him!
This is me, Jennifer, Heather, and Tiffany relaxing for a minute. This might have been the only time Tiffany sat down during the whole shower. Yes, I notice these things...
These two diaper cakes are so cute!! The one on the left was made by Gail, and the one of the right by Heather. I don't think I can bear to take them apart, but everything there is usable!
And a big thanks to Ricky, Tiffany's husband, for coming over to the shower and loading everything in his truck, bringing it all to my house, and carrying everything upstairs to the nursery. Nathan got called out to work for this whole weekend. This is the first time in a long time for that to happen, of course the day I have a baby shower. And he's working today too. I hope he gets off in time to go to the baby shower today given by his family. A lot of people will want to see him. And a big thanks to Shawn and Vanissa for allowing us to use their lovely home. I know it was a lot of work to get everything together. It really looked great. Vanissa even had de-caff coffee for me. Talk about thinking of everything!
I'm seriously getting teary-eyed thinking about all that everybody did for me and Chesley and Nathan yesterday. A big thanks to everyone who hosted, attended, and helped with the shower.
