A good answer
Feeling out of place.
In other news, I went to Chicago for a baby shower this weekend. My mom and 2 of my dearest friends hosted. It was beautiful - full of fun & love.
Fall/ Pumpkin theme - my favorite! (can you see those awesome decoupaged pumpkins!?)
A diaper cake :)
My mom made SO many mini pumpkin loaves - favors!
Cute welcome sign!
MIL and mom
people were so generous! we were certainly 'showered' with gifts
my dear friend Rachael
Mom (Grandma Cathy) made baby a "very hungry caterpillar" quilt!!
My mother in law (Grammy) made a beautiful crib quilt.
Guest appearance - this guy has guts walking into a house of ladies. He was picking up Mary and I got to meet their new baby girl, Alyssa :)
Kristen led a sweet devotion about parenting and motherhood. Now this is a girl who loves Jesus!
A bow hanger from Rachael :)
and the award for most fun wrapping goes to...
We opened gifts on and off throughout the event
I can't quite articulate all I was feeling-
overwhelmed by seeing almost every single person I love all in one place at one time.
very loved and blessed.
very grateful for people's generosity.
so excited to see 3 friends who came in from out of town just for this! :)
thankful this baby girl is going to be surrounded by people who love her.
