Baby Shower!

Our baby shower was this past Saturday and my friend Joanie (along with some help) did a FABULOUS job! Everything was so beautiful and we got lots of presents. My dad said he counted about 26 or 27 people which is pretty good since we invited 30. Steve and I feel lucky to have so many people who love us and love the babies already. Photos!

This, obviously, is me with some of the food. It was all so yummy! The shower was at Joanie's church and it was really cool the way they had it set up with this little serving area. That way we didn't have to try to arrange more tables for the food.

One of the cupcake-cakes. They were so so delicious and very cute! I ate like 3 cupcakes!

Check out that belly! Where is 8 more weeks of growth going to go?????

My best friend lives in Japan and she sent these super-cute kimonos for the babies. They won't fit for awhile but they are going to be adorable when they do.

Just an overview of the party.

One of the beautiful quilts that my mom made for the girls. She made them too many things to show pictures of them all. Some of my favorites were these pink quilts, the needlework family trees, the TINY little gold baby bracelets (she didn't make those but they were adorable) and the tiny little matching dresses. I think if she has her way, we are going to have two incredibly spoiled girls on our hands!

Some of the other things we got include: high chairs from my in-laws, books and music cd's, gift cards, a bouncer, bottles, a bathtub and lots of pink clothes! There were toys for the girls, a bumbo seat, thermometers, monitors and all kinds of other stuff. We got such a great variety of things! Thank you to everyone who came and made our day special!


  1. What a great day! You look so great, and so happy! :)

  2. What fun! The quilts are pretty. They will mean so much to girls. I think you look great. I good you feel great too! Thanks for sharing! Have a great week!

  3. Sorry that was supposed to say I hope (not good) you feel great too!
