On January 25th my mom gave us a beautiful baby shower.  It was a quiet snowy day and everything was perfect.  The idea of being 30 pounds heavier and caught off-guard didn’t exactly thrill me so it wasn’t a surprise.  My family and I made the decorations and decorating the venue together was of course one of my favorite parts! Here are some of the photos from that day.

My sister in laws printed up these cards from Etsy to put at each table.  I loved reading what people put on the "Wishes for Baby" cards.
