I'm a little late posting this. We had our first baby shower for Hollyn a few of Saturdays ago. (May 7). I wanted to make this shower co-ed/family friendly so Jeff could be a part of one (And I think co-ed showers are becoming more popular). So we made it less girly by having it at a park and grilling hot dogs... manly food ;)
We had a great turn out and it was so wonderful to get to celebrate this amazing blessing with our friends.
|The spread... mmmm!|
|A beautiful diaper cake made by Kelsey|
|Kelsey made these adorable blessing trees for people to right advice and words of encouragement.|
|Jeff's sweet grandma (Marti) lives close to the Jelly Belly factory in Cali so she ordered us tons of "It's a Girl!" jelly beans. So sweet!|
|The cake... "For this child I have prayed." 1 Sam 1:27|
|Yes, that is my best friend, Kelsey, who had her emergency c-section just 4 days prior and released from the hospital just the day before the shower... crazy girl! :)|
|Jeff getting some good practice.|
|My awesome friend Trina made this for Hollyn...|
|and this! (As well as an adorable pillowcase dress!)|
Ok, this is a play by play of me opening part of Kelsey's gift to Hollyn. Normally I wouldn't post pics of me making stupid faces but the truth is, baby stuff just brings the faces out!
|Kelsey had special ordered some handmade items from one of our friends who has an Etsy shop. (Sweettulipsboutique)|
|There was also a burp cloth and travel wet wipe case with "Hollyn" embroidered on them.|
|Ain't that the truth! ;)|
|Our friends (and parents... and my sis)!|
