The Shower!

Maybe I should put up a Table of Contents so you readers can skip to the “interesting” parts?

1. Review of family in town

2. Baby Shower overview and photos

3. List of gifts acquired with giftcards


1. It was fantastic to have our Moms and sisters in town this past week! We ate a TON of delicious food, and played several rousing games, all of which my mom DESTROYED us in. I’ve actually never seen Ryan beaten so thoroughly at Ligretto. She even won the new game Heather introduced us to. And by won, I mean she showed no mercy. NO MERCY! My Mom was really helpful when it came to buying all of the post-baby shower accessories, and was a lot of fun to have around in general. Heather, Shelly and Debbie-Mom were a lot of fun to hang out with! They always make things more festive!

2. In other news we also had the baby shower last Saturday, and it was beautiful! My friend Samantha planned a great party, and Kat and Regan brought food and drinks; together they made the perfect party. It was great to see so many of my friends from work and school, and it was really nice to have family there. Here are some pictures of the Event:

I really got a lot of great things. Plenty of wash cloths and little baby clothes! I got a Boppy and toys and a diaper sprayer for the cloth diapers, and a lot of blankets and baby accessories 🙂
