A party like the one given yesterday

is commonly known as a shower, but yesterday was more like an all out downpour! My friend Amanda snapped a few (244) pictures, thank you Amanda! So, without further delay...
(I have no idea where Taye gets his dramatic facial expressions)
Lots of laughs!

More giggles:

Not all the guests were so entertained :) Here is sweet Laurel:

I don't know what I was thinking, but it almost looks suspicious...

So many good friends!

The best little helper (Taye):

And, an entertaining little helper at that:

Hmm... what one should she open next:

An Auntie Outfit from Tiffany, oh no pregnancy hormones...
Yep, just about tearing up:
In the next one don't look at me (please), look to the left, too cute:

More friends:

and Family!

Oops, looking at two different cameras:
Laurel was so patient waiting for a cupcake, my aunt saw her in this position for 15 minutes or longer:
More fun and friends:

Tarena was busy snapping pictures too, thanks Tarena! I'm excited to see what she captured:
Proof that I did get up from the chair :)
The Raffle (an optional fun thing, every guest who brought her favorite baby essential, like diaper cream or a pacifier, put the item in the beautiful box and got to enter her name to win a prize):
More Favors (you can never have too many!) & Name Tags:
Coconut & Red Velvet Cupcakes... How are you supposed to choose!
Thank you family & friends, yesterday was a pure joy!
We (Kelly, Nicole, & Baby Girl) can't thank you enough!!!

Oh my goodness! I knew I took a lot, but 244!?! Well at least you know the day was captured to the fullest! =) I think Tarena snapped a few of you and Tiffany before I butted in so she probably has one of you looking at the camera at the same time (sorry about that!!). Can't wait to see Baby Girl in all of the adorable outfits she got yesterday!

I'm so glad to see that you were "showered" with love and support! It looks like so much fun and I'm so sorry that I couldn't make it. (If it makes you feel any better, I didn't get to go to my class either...bummer.) I've got another gift to add to your pile. :)

Thanks for posting pictures of the fun!

Your shower was SO much fun! Your family and friends are so nice. Oh and I totally made chicken salad today because I have been thinking about it ever since! The food was so good.

Stefanie said...

sooo sad I missed it! It looked like you had a blast, and were showered with many awesome gifts! I can't wait to hear about it in person!

there is no better party than a baby shower, I think :) Looks like you got so many fun things for your little dolly. :) Can't wait to hear all about your special day!
