This past Sunday we had a baby shower for all our friends and family. The theme was as cute as a button and let me tell you I thought it turned out so cute!
I have to say Ryan, Baby, and I are so blessed to have such generous people in our lives! People to host the shower for us and people to bring us all these goodies that will help us care for our little girl! And to think we get even more love this weekend from our church family shower!
Today, I wanted to show some pictures to you because really that is the best way for me to share the experience with you!
One of our lovely hostesses made this invitation for us!
Baby’s initials all covered in buttons.
Cute as a button cake. The button that is covered had her name on it.
My aunt, another hostess, made this.
Plates made into buttons. The baby in the middle was inspired by this Pinterest project.
Everyone wrote a wish for baby. I took a picture of it, but also kept all the circles of notes.
I have been doing occasional pregnancy updates throughout, but I have made an image for every month.
They used these pictures with cute frames they made to display for everyone to see.
Our lovely hostesses! Gina, Brigitte and Aunt Debra. They really did a great job loving on us!
Hostesses thank you gifts were shower goodies with a tag that said:
Thank you for making our shower so wonderful! We hope this can make your next shower wonderful too!
I thought I would spare you all the gift opening pictures and make a collage. We got lots of goodies!
Things like an outfit with bikes on it for her to wear to Ryan’s triathlons. A tiny swimsuit. A doll named Emily from my sister Emilee. Custom art work and a quilt! Along with other useful things like diaper bag, Boppy, bath stuff, etc.
After presents we took pictures with different groups of family and friends. Just thought I would share a few.
This is Anita, Ryan’s mom and Vicki, my mom.
Never when I started blogging did I realize the real life friendships that could be made!
Ryan came by at the end of the shower to visit with some people and help load up the car. We were showering of our loot!
Now that the shower is over I am writing a ton of thank you cards! I purchased the pink cards from Hobby Lobby when they were half off so I got like 96 of them for $11. Then I found the free printable (which can be made into a lot of different colors). And there you have all our thank you cards for way cheap!
We are so very blessed to have people in our lives that love us so much! They all have been great support and encouragement during this transitioning time in our lives.
We are getting so excited for our little girl to arrive in the next few weeks!
Until Next Time- Truly Love,
