The next day we headed to church (a lot of our family came with us) and right after the service we had a baby shower! It was so much fun, and I was so amazed. They have only known us a few months, and yet our church put together such a great party. The cake and punch was delicious, everyone was so generous, and the fellowship was so wonderful. We have been truly blessed with such a wonderful church, not to mention friends and family who are so supportive (and also generous!!). I couldn't believe all the stuff we brought home: cloth diapers, wipes, sheets, clothes, breastfeeding items, handmade clothes and shawls, gift cards and toys. Elizabeth also got a ton of toys as so many people wanted to keep her involved. I can't thank everyone who came and gave us such wonderful gifts enough though. Not to sound like a broken record, but it was so generous, and we are very blessed to have so many people who love us.
I wish I had some photos, but was unable to take any since we were busy opening gifts. ;) However, I'm sure we'll be getting some from the ladies of the church soon (which I'll post later). However, I did take a quick photo of some of the cupcake cake and regular cake we brought home with us. It's doesn't adequately show how super cute these cakes were, but I wanted to show something from the party. I'll post some pics later of some wonderful gifts too, but in a nesting moment Mark and I put a lot of it away before taking some pictures. Whoops!
|Yummy cake and cupcake cake. So adorable!! I'll get a pic of the whole thing later on.|
