We Got Spoiled At the Shower

My sister and Auntie sure know how to throw a party!

(my sister even made baby BLUE punch for the punch bowl)

I had sooo much fun!

~ Look at all the yummy food~
The party was a smash! It was sooo good to be surrounded by all the friends and family that came to the party. I felt like I did on my wedding day, surrounded by love.

We got lots of nice wishes and promises of prayers for our new family member to be healthy and my labor to be easy.

William sure made out!

He got soooooo many gifts at the baby shower.

Check out the cake - it was made up of 30 cupcakes frosted all together to make one cake - It was so cute and delicious too!
Lots of smiling faces all day :)We played some fun games and had lots of presents/prizes for the guests. How nice it feels not to worry about the things we will need for him.

Thanks to everyone, we are ready now and that is a great feeling. We are only anxious to hold him.

Look at my living room afterwards! This is only HALF of the room, it was filled! Crazy, huh? I have spent all week organizing his things and washing, folding and hanging all his new clothes :)

Love this pic! It is the best! There are a few people missing that had to leave early - but we got most everyone in it! Thanks for coming!

You got some good pics! I loved the cake! It was cute and tasted good to. The last picture looks like you are buried in presents. Your sister and aunt did a good job:)

Wow looks like it was a fun shower. I love that cake! Okay, I'm getting in a grandbaby mood again...on with the show!! I'm excited to see this new little guy.

I went back for a second look at the onesie's. Gosh that brings back memories of just a year ago when my Kenzie was born and two years ago when Cayden was born, both in June, 25 and 27. I have so much stuff I wish I could pass on, ahhh...but distance is the problem. Besides looks like you are starting out with plenty.

Gramma Sandy (hahah)..or as some of the kids call me (Gramma Coffee, Gramma Zebra)...
