You can see the food table in the background, which included more of my favorite culinary delights: shrimp cocktails, fruits, veggies, and little sandwiches. And, of course, the cake, which C custom decorated! The imprint matches the invitations which she made herself.
After the food, I had some time to catch up with my friends, family, and coworkers. I had a pretty impressive turnout, including my friend from San Francisco, another from Boise, Idaho, and a third friend due that day with her little girl. We took a "comparison" shot just to remind everyone how huge I am!
We played a few shower games and then it was time to open gifts. I was once again overwhelmed by everyone's generousity and love for us and Little Man.
At the end of the shower, C had one more suprise. She had gotten baby pictures from my mom and mother-in-law and created a slide show out of them put to some of my favorite songs. There were some pretty neat pictures and a lot of tears from the moms - I guess that group now includes me!
It is impossible from these pictures to really convey the amount of time, energy, and most importantly, pure love that went into this shower. I have heard from almost every single one of my guests that it was the best shower they have ever been to. I have to agree.
C is definitely a one of a kind friend! I am so glad that she lives just next door and that our sons will be able to be friends, too!
Nursery tour video tomorrow!
