I mentioned last week that my sister threw a beautiful baby shower/tea party for me, which my Grandma Ann hosted in her home. How often do you get to have a for real tea party?! Well, maybe you are fancier than I am, but unless you count the ones on my living room floor with Blythe, rarely do I get to sip tea and eat scones and cucumber sandwiches with wonderful ladies.
My sister and Grandma went above and beyond in putting this little shin-dig together. It was beautiful. I was so impressed with the invites my sister whipped up too:
|Oh my goodness, my nephew: Wesley Paul. We are fond of that guy. And my beautiful sister, Kali.|
|My grandma and aunt have the best collection of tea cups and saucers.|
|I love this picture of Meagan, and since she is rarely in FRONT of the camera, I had to post it! And look at how she is staring lovingly at my mom. :)|
|My dad showed up to take picture and then saw Beth and Meagan, "Well! If I knew you both would be here I wouldn't have come!" Yeah right, I think he secretly wanted in on the party.|
It was so wonderful to get to share this morning with some truly wonderful women who have loved on me and prayed for me and blessed me in so many ways.
|Stole Beth's cell phone pic since she, too, is rarely in front of camera|
|The baby whisperer, with Lincoln|
|oh, Grandma Pat.. she hates having her picture taken.|
|Blythe had a little tea party of her on in the other room|
|and when I say little…I mean, little|
|But mainly, she was in it for the snacks|
|All the details of this day were perfect. Here were the party favors Kali put together|
|oh my land, this dress!|
|My mom had to get "Mommy and Daddy" something too :) Is it weird that I got Oreos at my baby shower for Blythe too? Do I have a problem?|
While looking through the pictures though, I decided that really a baby shower is a great time to make a pregnant woman [and her sister] make some really fantastic faces. I can't believe I'm sharing these, but they made me laugh. Do I seriously look like this all the time?! [Don't answer that]. I'm just glad Kali joined me for some of them.
Without further adieu… I present… the faces:
|I don't look excited…but I was.|
|probably my favorite|
|Caroline got the funny face making gene too!|
|Because when you get cute towels you should act like a beaver.|
|"oooooohhhhh… they're blankets!"|
