Showered with love

A few weeks ago my sisters and my best friend threw me the sweetest baby shower. 
IMG_3081My shower was held at my older sister Lisa’s house and it couldn’t have been any cuter or more special.  The only thing missing was my sweet sister Julie.  She is expecting a baby due in November and has been having a pretty rough time with morning sickness.  She was definitely with us in spirit.

I walked in the door and just wanted to cry from happiness at all their hard work and the cute decorations and precious friends and family who came to celebrate sweet McKenna.
IMG_3073They had the most beautiful, delicious food, I specially requested the cheesecake cupcakes from a local bakery, oh yum!
IMG_2992There was a fun ‘make your own hairbow’ station and I am just in love with all the cute hairbands Miss McKenna has to choose from now. 
IMG_2988Lori and some of her creative friends made some extra special ones.  Lori even recreated a specific one that I had pinned on pinterest.
IMG_3001All the guests got to take a guess at McKenna’s birthday!  I picked June 4th, we’ll see if I make it that far.  Her actual due date is June 10th.
IMG_3099I was just overwhelmed at all the generous gifts my sweet friends and family brought. 
IMG_2987My youngest sister Lori did an amazing job keeping track and writing down who each gift was from.  I never could have gotten my thank you’s done without her.
IMG_3023My sweet baby girl got so, so many precious outfits and lots of fun little shoes and socks.
IMG_3037Lori made this precious onesie for her new little niece. It has fun pink polka dot ribbon ruffles on the hiney.
IMG_3059One of my best friend’s Grandma’s hand crocheted this beautiful pink blanket. It is so special, I know just how much time goes into something like this and I just love it.
IMG_3046My younger sisters, Julie and Lori, got me my brand new diaper bag. It is now all packed and ready to go to the hospital any day. I love it, it has so many great pockets and a handy little changing mat, I can’t wait to use it with my little baby doll.
IMG_3052My unbelievable hubby even surprised me with an extra special gift, he sent a small wrapped box in his mothers care to give to me to open at the shower.

Pearl BracletA beautiful pearl bracelet, pearl will be McKenna’s birthstone, with her initials engraved in a precious sterling silver heart. Oh my goodness, fight back the tears, it is so lovely. Maybe she can borrow it for her wedding someday.
IMG_3074Speaking of my sweet hubby, Kenny came towards the end of the shower to say hello and thank you to all our guests and to help us load up all the wonderful gifts.
IMG_3084And, of course I couldn’t end the day without taking a picture with Kenny’s wonderful Mom, it was so special that she made the trip to be with me.
IMG_3077And my beautiful Mom, I grow to appreciate her more and more with every passing day, she is just my best friend.

It was just a wonderful day, I cannot thank my sweet hostesses enough for all their hard work and all my guests, everyone just made me feel so loved and special, I love you all!
