A Shower for Addison!!!

On Sunday March 2, 2008, my sisters gave me and little Addison a shower for all of my VA girlfriends! It was so much fun! The food was DELICIOUS...I love party food! It was so much fun opening all the pretty little girl clothes and getting some of the room accessories! I can't wait for her to get here so I can dress her up like a little doll! :)

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, to EVERYONE for coming and making it such a special day! Not only was the shower fun but it was just wonderful to see all of you and catch up a bit! You all are so special to me and I miss each and every one of you! I feel blessed by God to have such special ladies in my life! love you all! Thankfully we've all started this blogging addiction and I feel like I can peek into your lives and see what's going on while I'm not there! :) Here are the pix from the shower. Mrs. Williams' camera is on the brink so some of them are blurry! Sorry about that! :) Can you believe I forgot my camera????

Can you tell I'm having a baby! The belly is definitely out there! ;)

Grace ordered the cake from her favorite bakery...Sugar Plum...and it was DELICIOUS!!!

Jenn, Katrina, Sarah, & Grace

Janet, Terri, & Ann

(Nanny was sitting by mom but I don't have a picture of her) Mom, Donna, & Cindy

Jen, Jessica, & Barbara Maggiore (Oh, there's Nanny in the background!)

Heather & Jamie

The Diaper cake! Katy made this for me. Someone made one for her at her shower for Callie and I just LOVED it! I was so excited that she made one for me to enjoy! She even made it in size 1 diapers so I don't have to take it apart too quickly! :)

It was so fun opening the pretty baby clothes and some of the accessories for the room! :)

This frame was from Alicia...such a cute idea! The letters for her name are magnets so you can move them all around. I'm going to try and keep the boys from figuring this out...I'll be missing letters before I know it!

This gift was from Ann & Terri and we just oohed and ahhed over how beautifully wrapped it was. I didn't even want to open it up! :)

Vonda sent this towel for Addison. It's a bunny and Ella Rose has one just like it! Wish you could have been with us Vonda!

Katy & me...doesn't she look GREAT!!! skinny minny!!! :)

Savannah w/ Aunt Beth

Grace, Savannah, Beth, Janet - my sisters did a FABULOUS job and I'm so thankful for them!

Sweet Savannah's always fun to have a baby at the shower for everyone to enjoy and love on! :)

I LOVE the diaper cake! I have never seen anything like that! What a blessing to have such good friends!

Jennifer said...

Looks like you had SO much fun!!!! You're so very blessed to have such wonderful sisters and friends to help celebrate Addison's arrival! You look fabulous and very very happy!!!!

Andy & Jen said...

You got so much great stuff! Mrs. Williams' camera seems to be attracted to me only when I'm eating or have my mouth open. What's up with that! :)

Katy said...

I was so relieved that Mrs. Williams showed up with her camera - I knew I could relax and EAT!! :) She did a great job capturing everyone - and the picture she got of us is much better than the one she took on my camera - we were cropped weird in it! I'm going to steal yours!!

Oh Beth, it looks like y'all had such a great time at your shower. I thought of you all day long and when the clock turned 2:00 there, I was so wishing I could have been there. Germany is great but doggone it, I hate missing all these special events like showers and birthdays. Grace and Janet did a fabulous job on your shower and I'm so glad your friends and family made you feel so loved and special! Love ya -V
