Showered with Love and Gifts

This weekend my wonderful friend Sarah threw me a fantastic baby shower! I am so thankful for Sarah! Being so far away from home makes you long for friendship, and she has definitely become a very important friend in my life. We had a fun group of ladies join us on Saturday afternoon to celebrate Sophie's arrival in 8 weeks. I was so surprised at how many people were able to attend and the wonderful gifts that we received. I am so touched by the generosity of my friends! Sadly, I did not get a picture of the whole group, but I did get a couple of pictures of the cute setup. Once the party started I totally forgot all about the camera and was too focused on enjoying myself! My lovely friend Jessica (the amazing photographer) captured some really beautiful shots and posted them on her blog. Thanks for posting those Jess!

Here are some pictures:
I had such a blast on Saturday! Thank you again Sarah for such a fun time!!

While I'm at it, I realized I never did post about my showers back home while we were visiting in November. So here are a couple of shots from those. One was hosted by Jon's sister Jennii and one by my mother and step sisters.

This was a surprise baby shower hosted by Jennii!
One of the coolest things about this shower is Jennii and her husband own a photo booth and they set it up for our shower. Everyone took their picture during the shower and we later used the pictures to put into a scrapbook! It was such a thoughtful and creative gift, something I will always cherish!

This is the scrapbook that we have everyone's pictures in.

They also wrote us little notes next to their pictures.

This was the shower thrown by my mother and step sisters.
Jennii also brought the photo booth with her to this baby shower.
We now have pictures of everyone who came to both!

I am so thankful for all of our friends and family that were able to make it to our baby showers! I am also SO very thankful for all of the wonderful gifts Sophie has received. She is definitely one loved and blessed little baby and Jon and I are so blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives!
