Baby Shower!

This past Sunday, my amazing sister-in-law Angie threw me an awesome baby shower! I had a blast. It was so much fun to see everyone was able to make it. Especially those of you who came in from out of town!

My mother-in-law Anita, sister-in-laws Renee and Angie, and me.
My sister Ashley, my Mom, and I.

Angie and Jocelyn.
The shower started out with everyone introducing themselves, and cutting a piece of ribbon to the length that they believed would fit around my belly. It was hilarious to see how large people thought I was! Most people had several (and some more than several) inches too much. My friend Emily ended up winning the game, she was almost EXACTLY on. But I think she had an unfair advantage, since shes a nurse and measures people a lot. ;-)

Measuring Ribbon. Clearly someone was WAY off! Haha.

Jocelyn (my niece) even got into the ribbon measuring fun.

Next it was time for the FOOD! As a pregnant woman, I have to say this was one of my favorite parts. Angie makes delicious food as it is, and this party was no exception. She made her famously amazing meatballs, which were my favorite part. There was also awesome salads, veggies, and egg-bake. For desert, there were some super cute, and very delicious cupcakes (I'll admit to eating two of them at the shower, then the two I was sent home with the next day - as I told Angie "I've never met a cupcake I didn't love").

Eating all the delicious food.

While people ate and mingled, others were able to make personalized onesies. They did this by using little iron on decals and letters. They turned out soooooo cute. I can't wait to see Henry in them. It's so special having clothes made by people you love. It was a great idea! Finally we opened presents! Henry got so many cute things! We also got some much needed diapers!

Now comes the hard part of putting it all away! The nursery looks like it has exploded. But overall, I had an absolutely wonderful time. Thank you Angie for throwing it, and thanks to everyone who was able to make it!
