A Double-Stuffed with LOVE Babyshower!

For those of you who don't know, my beautiful sister-in-law, Kirsten, is pregnant with IDENTICAL TWIN GIRLS!

Although she lives in California, she was able to come back into town one last time before delivery (which will probably be in 7-8 weeks from now), which meant we got to throw her a babIES shower!

I worked on the shower with some of Pat's best friends: Nancie, Julie, and Pat Sousa. I think everyone had a lovely time and I know Kirsten was showered with many lovely gifts! Those babies are already SO loved and will be SO spoiled (especially by, ahem, their favorite auntie!)

Have a look at some pics:

Chelsea and I made 2 diaper wreaths as decoration for the shower and also for the nursery if they choose. Chelsea had made me 1 when I was pregnant with Shyla and I loved having it in her room. I never actually used the diapers, but I did pull off the goodies as they were needed.

Shyla, of course, attended the shower! She is going to have so much fun playing with 2 girl cousins that are smaller than her! She was a very good girl at the shower and she had a lot of fun, come to find out, though, she was feeling under-the-weather and had a temperature of 101.3 when we got home. (sad face)

Kirsten received two beautifully knitted baby blankets (called car-seat blankets) from my Grandma Palmer. These are a treasure in our family and I'm sure the babies will treasure them also.
Big Steve spent a few days in Sedona and he brought back these ADORABLE onesies!

And then there was this gigantic box that everyone thought was going to have to be shipped back to CA for them. Turns out there was just a box of wipes with a note that the double stroller they registered for will be delivered to their home. He he he.

We hope Kirsten had fun at the shower and continues to feel good for the remainder of her pregnancy. And we hope to see those baby girls often!

What a fun shower! I can't believe there are about to be 3 new babies in your lives...eeek, I am so excited! I love the diaper wreath and might have to learn from you how to make one -- my head is swimming with ideas for my sister's shower!

Hey Kendra! The blog post was great! It was a fun day! Thank you again! The diaper wreaths were great and I love the idea of just taking items off as we need them.I wish I could keep the oreos forever they are so cute.But, I guess I'll have to eat them.
