Saturday was our baby shower, which was fantastic :) My mom and sister did a really great job planning and organizing everything . . . and people were so generous! We got a ton of great stuff for the baby.

Today I'm not feeling too well (hopefully it's just allergies) so I'm not going to write too much, but I wanted to put these pictures up:

Aren't the decorations cute? They even put balloons on my chair to dress it up. (The shower was held at my mom & dad's house.)

Opening presents, with the help of my sister, Lisa (in blue):
My mom, sister & I (it's a little dark)
Shower Guests:
Cake (yum!)

My cousin Coleen brought brand-new baby Delainey (only 5 weeks old!).
Coleen, Delainey, Aunt Cathy, Jenn, Aunt Chris

Tina & me
Lisa, Mom, Emerson (6 months) and me
Mom, me & Helaine (Dave's mom)

All of the women on my dad's side (minues Caileigh, who was playing at home :)

So that's it for now. I feel like I should talk about everyone's presents, because they were so generous, but I guess that would be pretty boring for anyone reading this. I'll have to post pictures of the chart from the shower. Lisa made it (it's really well done) and everyone made guesses about the baby . . . everyone seems to think it's going to be big! (I agree.) I'll also have to get a picture of the bracelet that Lisa had made for me . . . it has my birthstone and Dave's and the baby's---so the baby better make its debut in May!

Looks like a lot of fun! I can't believe how close you are.

Say hi to Tina for me--I haven't seen her since the summer we worked together (randomly) in PA!

We had such a great time! You got some wicked nice stuff!!!! It was really nice to see everyone too. You look great, finally getting bigger!!!!!! I can't wait to meet my niece or nephew!!!! And if the baby is not born in May it just means we need to add new birthstones to your bracelet!!! :)
