Our First Shower!

This weekend was our very first baby shower! It was so much fun and we will always remember it. Kyle's firm threw this one for us and Gary (Kyle's boss) and his wife, along with Richard and Becky Books, hosted it for us! The theme was all "Bs"..."balloons, boas, beer, barbecue and of course lots of baby stuff!" Pink balloons and frilly boas dressed the tables and everyone enjoyed yummy BBQ before indulging in this spectacular cake. Isn't it cute!

It was so great to celebrate our joy with so many of our friends. Here's a few pics of us unwrapping gifts -- we got so much good stuff, including a cute diaper bag, bottles galore, cute outfits and hats, blankets, toys, lots of diapers and the list goes on. Kyle also got a bottle of Knob Creek, cigars and a sippy cup ; ) This clever gift came from Frank and was a refreshing gift for Kyle to unwrap after seeing so much girly stuff! Oh yeah, and the 8x10 framed picture we unwrapped was hysterical! This was intended to be a joke and everyone got a kick out of us showing this beauty off -- it's a picture of Richard Books from several years ago! In the midst of unwrapping it, I kept thinking..."Should I know this person???" Kyle knew exactly who it was and everyone got lots of laughs admiring it!

It was a fun night and we feel so grateful to have the support of such wonderful people in our lives! We can't wait to introduce Kate to all of them! By the way, the precious little girl I'm kissing is Miss Lauren, daughter of Kami and Eric. She's so beautiful with her big blue eyes! She's growing up so fast and is turning one this week! She and Kate are sure to be great friends!

  1. Great pics! I am so sorry that I won't be able to come to your shower....I was looking forward to seeing you (and the other OCU girls) but Bailey has both a studio run for her dance recital AND a soccer game. I'm trying to figure out how I'm going to swing it. I hope you have a great time!
