Wonderful Weekend

I have lots of time to think these days.  Sometimes my brain wants to dive into the pregnancy paranoia thoughts, but I TRY to avoid that.  Lately I've spent a lot of time thinking about all the amazing people we have in our lives.  Our immediate families have been doing so much for us.  Our friends and extended families are so helpful and supportive.  It just makes me happy and gives me something positive to think about when I have down time.  

This last weekend made me realize it more than ever.  I had a houseful of family for the weekend (Mom, AR, Carolyn, Frances, Lyndy, and Kat) and they kept me company, did stuff around the house, provided food - all while I just laid on the couch or in bed.  There is nothing better than waking up and staying in bed a few hours with the company of three sweet nieces, and your mom and sisters bringing you food.

The one time I did get up was to go to my shower.  Big outing for me!  I don't even have the right words to describe how wonderful it was.  Everything was perfect - the food, the decorations, the company.  My friends went above and beyond and I appreciate everything they did so much.  Even though I was a lame guest of honor and had to sit on the couch the whole time.  Luckily there were some great photographers to capture all the wonderful details.

The incredible food and decorations:
Candy Bar - so cute
Diaper Cake, courtesy of Natalie (with a surprise in the middle)
Teeny tiny onesies - monogrammed by Corinne
Delicious cookies and cakes, beautifully decorated (the three cakes each were a different flavor and monogram)
Wonderful food and decorations
Pretty flowers and decorations - flowers courtesy of Rita's garden
Decorations and gifts - three beautiful handmade gowns from Mary Clay, made by her mother in law
Can't wait to read these cards!
