Harper's Baby Shower!

As I have mentioned before, I have wonderful friends! I am so very blessed! A few weekends ago some of my besties threw a baby shower for me and Harper Ann! As you can see from above, the theme was The Very Hungry Caterpillar.

It was the perfect sized shower and I felt loved and supported just as I know Harper will immediately become part of our extended "family" as Shyla did.

I didn't take nearly as many pictures as I wanted to because I was visiting and enjoying. I'm hoping other guests took some to share! But here's what I have:

Abbie and Sadie.

My mom and Gavin.

Zac, Ayden, and Shyla (anxiously waiting for the go-ahead on the cupcakes!)

The Theme!

Opening gifts!
We were, of course, spoiled by the generosity of our friends and family with lots of clothes, books, blankets, a double-stroller, stuffed animals, an IPOD player, diapers, etc. Plus a Gadabout gift-card and purple lamp that were both delivered to my house!

And then there was the "show" part of the shower when Shyla decided to do this. For the record, I thought Stevie taught that to her, but he didn't. She learned it all on her own apparently.

Beth and Sadie toward the end of the party!

As I have said countless times, we have the best friends in the world.

I don't have any pictures but my good friend, Suzanne, also organized a collection through our work and we ended up with a very generous gift-card to Target! I had planned to use it on the double-stroller but since it ended up at the shower, we have used it on bottles instead.

We are filled with love.

What a wonderful theme for a shower. I just love that cupcake caterpillar and the balloons are too cute. That would make a good theme for a kids birthday party too. Hmmm.

So glad you were showered with love (and baby stuff!). Bet you feel better about Harper's upcoming arrival.

I love the theme! It looks like it was a great party and I'm sorry to have missed it, but it is just so wonderful to know how loved little Harper Ann is already = )

I LOVE the theme! That is sooooo cool! Seriously! By the way, I have a little something else for you (Harper) I was hoping to give you yesterday for our playdate, but we'll have to schedule another time. Such fun this looks like it was!
