Showers of Blessings

My friends and family are the best.  I know what your thinking: everyone thinks that about their friends and family. Well I can say it honestly.  My friends and family are the best.  One friend in particular put a lot of time and energy into planning a beautiful shower for Peanut and I. She had a few helpers, but most of the work was done on her own. It was amazing.  Don’t take my word for it though, check out the photos below:


Every guest who brought a package of diapers to the shower was entered in a drawing for a door prize.  Check out the diaper cake, Nichole (the host) made it herself.

If you haven’t guessed already it was a fire truck theme.  Can’t have baby boys without fire trucks.  Just ask Hubby.  The tables had fire trucks on them with balloon bouquets attached.


We made Thank You water bottles (labels courtesy of Bean Sprout Studio) for guests.


Build your own Curry Chicken Salad and Salmon Salad Sandwiches, Fresh Veggies, Fruit Salad, and sweet treats were on the menu.



Along with beautiful beverages.  





To top it all off, a wonderfully perfect Cake made by Kerryjane.



No baby shower would be complete without games. Especially the clothes pin game. You know the one where you can’t say baby or someone takes your clothes pin?


There were gifts. Peanut and I really didn’t need anything since this is our third boy and we have saved all of our baby clothes. The gifts that we received were very special to me.



some handmade by family members,


some off my baby registry,


and some that guests just thought would be nice for us to have.

Our family is truly blessed to have such wonderful people to surround us with love.  Thank you everyone who helped make our shower wonderful, you are all very special to us.

See, don’t I have the best friends and family?


Side Note: The weather was awesome, I prayed all month for no rain. God is good isn’t he?
