My Baby Shower

I'm finally getting around to posting pics from my baby shower this past Sunday. I really enjoyed myself and laughed the entire time! My mother-in-law and 2 sisters did a fantastic job getting everything together. I loved having my friends and family members from both sides come together to celebrate the pending birth of my little boy. We got a lot of cute stuff and now I'm more anxious for his arrival...just 29 more days!

Some of my guests teased me because I took pictures at my own shower...don't they know that I am a scrapper and my camera is like another appendage? The first 3 pictures are ones I took using the self timer after the shower. Don't mind the big stain on my belly- I dropped food on my shirt at the beginning of the shower...I guess I wasn't feeding Xander fast enough. LOL!

Troy came downstairs and caught me taking pictures- all he could do was shake his head. I love this one...look at all of that belly!

OK, I'll admit it- I thought I looked quite cute for my event (stain and all)! LOL!

My baby sister made the hats and BOTH Troy and I had to wear them. She got really creative by attaching the balloon to the top. My middle sis was all too thrilled to help put it on. I laughed so hard because Troy had this "I feel really ridiculous" look on his face! I wonder how this tradition started.


My friend Melissa bought this little outfit and teeny little shoes to go with it. Love it!

Nice little family shot. It was so nice to have my guys sitting up there with me helping with everything! Donovan told everyone it was his baby shower! He's too much!

I forgot to get a good shot of the umbrella (see it on the right side). My sister made it and it was incredibly beautiful...row and rows of yellow, blue, and white lace! I'm not the only creative soul in my family!
Troy's aunt is also an amazing crafter- she really has an eye for things. She created this 2-tier diaper cake- everyone love this!

How cute is this cake? My MIL's friend made it and not only was it beautiful, but delicious, too!!! I just fell in love with that little chuckling brown baby.

My MIL also made banners with Xander's name and estimated due date on them. I really loved and appreciated all of the handmade touches that made my shower special and unique. My sister made these little favors.
