Baby Shower

My very first baby shower....oh what fun!! I had SUCH an amazing time, and was completely overwhelmed and blessed by everyone's love.

I thought it was so cute that they had both "It's a girl!" AND "It's a boy!" banners =).

We have only been attending this Church for a little over a year and a half, but we absolutely love it there and the people have become like family to us.

My mother in law and sister in law came to the shower. Here is a pic of the two of them, and me and my giant belly:

They had tons of yummy things for us to snack on:
We played games...and ate cake...

And opened gifts galore...One of the ladies made each twin their own quilt and even put their names on them...I got really choked up opening these...



One of the ladies "wrapped" her present in a tote, & then noted in her card how totes were about to become a way of life for me...indeed!!

And how cute is this sock "bow"???...



I can't even begin to express how fun it was to open boy AND girl stuff...I feel so incredibly blessed!!
Little Abbey Mae's first dress...
More homemade blankets....(my face is not disgust here, it's OHMYGOSH-THIS MUST HAVE TAKEN YOU FOREVER!!)

The whole thing was so much fun. I couldn't even sleep in that morning, I woke up so excited! It was like Christmas or something!!

I sat there and just tried to soak it all in...I am finally pregnant...attending my own baby shower...it was surreal...and wonderful.

We feel so loved and so incredibly blessed. I hope each of you out there has a Church family as wonderful as ours!
