Wonderful Baby Shower

This past weekend our wonderful Connection Group hosted a shower for Westin and Katie graciously opened her house for it. We are so blessed to have such a close group of friends "doing life" together. We have all been together for years and have had countless baby showers. They are always so fun. :)

Here is the beautiful table. Katie said she must love me since she even planted flowers for me! Haha! I was definitely feeling the love with everything she did and with what everyone did for the shower.

The absolutely delicious petit fours were so cute with "W"'s, booties and safety pins on them.

This was such a cute idea! We had to guess how many pieces of candy were in the jars and whoever was closest without going over won them.

Sour Patch Kids are my absolutely favorite candy but I was off by about 100! Haha! Jill won them and was so sweet to give them to me. She knows how much I love them. I shared with her. ;)

The hostesses. Jill, Helga, Lindsey, Me, Katie, Jennifer, Desty and Abby.

This was a cute onesie that Lindsey's sister-in-law made me. You might have to click on the picture to see it better but it has owls on it! Too cute!

Gran (my Mom) got Westin this cute outfit. I love little boys in this style of outfit. :)

Two of the little kids I used to nanny for were able to come so that was fun. It was such a great shower and Cody and I are so overwhelmed by every one's generosity through out my whole pregnancy. We are truly blessed and thank the Lord for each of you!

I love that little owl onesie! So sweet. You should "shadowbox it" once he outgrows it. It's too fun to pack away.....Oh, and next year, you won't BELIEVE that he used to fit into it. =)

Hi, I wanted to add your button to my page..but I dont know how? Can you tell me where to put the info I get from your page.

I dont remember how I found your blog, but I check it daily. I used to live in arkansas (little rock) and my boyfriends family all lives in rogers/fayettville area, so its funny that I read your blog and your friends from arkansas as well.

THanks, allison
