Bible Study Baby Shower - 7/11/07

A post has been a long time coming. It seems as though many bloggers are a little "sluggish" in the heat of the summer... My friend from church, Alicia, planned us a fabulous baby shower last month! I wanted to share some pictures from the event! It was held at our "Young Married Couples" Bible study leaders' home. We are very thankful for the many blessings we received there! Not only were people from church there, but my friend from college, Meghan, her sister, mom, fiance and his daughter were all there, too! We have had two more showers since then - one with each family.
This is Mary Jo and me with the beautiful "diaper cake" that she made for me! She is so talented! I really appreciate the hard work that she put into the cake! I was so thrilled to be receiving one - as I have admired the many that she has made for many of the gals at church. It was finally my turn!

A close-up of the cake. It is sitting in baby's room right now. I can't bear to disassemble it!

One view of the room during present opening!

Me and Meghan. She gets married on Sunday! Woo hoo!

Me elated after opening our "shopping cart cover." I am such a germ freak that I was thrilled when we received this off of the registry!

Our beautiful and tasty cake! Also see the delicious banana cake that is next to it - courtesy of Meg's mom, Colleen!

Me and Alicia. Doesn't she look great!?! Just had baby boy #2, Blake!

Overall, it was really an awesome shower and we felt very blessed by all of the generous gifts! Thank you!!!

only one month to go, that's exciting! Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yes, we have found that all babies are different- and our little girl has a mind of her own! I have a friend that does baby wise, and it works for her, though it isn't really up my alley. To each his/her own, I guess! Good luck with your upcoming delivery!
