Showered with Love, Creativity and Friendship

We had a wonderful baby shower at our house a couple weeks ago, hosted by my sister Stephanie, Mom, and good friends Kellie, Susan and Stacey. Susan Watson, me, Kellie Martini, Stacey Bossert, Stephanie Flores (sister), Betsy Allaire (mom)It was fun and creative, and the house was FULL of women that I love.  They came from McKinney, North Richland Hills, Hurst, Mansfield, Houston and even South Austin! :) They spoiled Baby Remington and his Momma rotten!

The ladies from my family made the trek down from DFW.It was hard to get one where everyone was looking and smiling! From left: Annabelle, Karon, Mom, Marianne, Madi, me, Aunt Bobbi, Stephanie, Avery, Bo, Katrena

One of my girlfriends from high school, Amanda, came down with her two kids, Caden and Brady.Me, Caden (4), Amanda, Brady (11 weeks) The food was fantastic -- Kellie and Susan out-did themselves! And Stacey had the cake match the baby's room! It was so good and so cute! Stephanie made a not-your-traditional diaper cake in the theme of sushi. It is so cute!

Here's the cake and the "sushi cake" :) We didn't do any games (thank goodness! ;) but there were some fun crafty projects that people worked on for the baby, like decorating onesies for him, and writing messages to Jer and me for a scrapbook that Kellie made.

These are so fun! You guys are so creative! Many people brought books for the baby, signed with messages to him. Jer and I have read all the messages from our loving friends and cannot wait to share them with our little guy.

On their way home, everyone was invited to take a little treat: a newborn diaper decorated and filled with cookies, courtesy of Stacey. The message on the tag suggests that people follow our growing family here on this blog. Such a wonderful touch!

So cute and such a thoughtful touch! We are so very blessed. THANK YOU ALL!
