34 Weeks Pregnant! Baby Shower! and Anniversary!

To view past weeks click here! 

Week 34 was a very exciting week! It was our anniversary (June 25th) weekend and baby shower weekend!! We scheduled the baby shower for that weekend because we thought it would be fun to have a weekend celebrating two very special moments in our lives.

My sister Von did the planning for the shower and it was wonderful! She spent so much time planning, designing and making the invitations, creating the candy bar, doing the decor, ordering the cupcakes, all to make the shower special for me. I am so grateful that she took it upon herself to host the shower and made an effort to make me aware that I in fact was the guest of honor. She spent many long nights preparing for this in addition to going to school, working, little league games and taking care of Camden and Jamison (though Andy did a great job at keeping them preoccupied). Both Chris and I are grateful for Von and Andy. I decided to have the shower at our home since it was mid way for a lot of people coming from different directions and also a lot of our family had yet to see our house. Andy brought by all of the additional tables to use, and seating just in case we needed it. Von came by a day early and together we visualized the setup. My mother and oldest sister Calista were tasked with food duty, they did a fabulous job as well.  Everything looked so beautiful and tasted amazing!! Someone even said it was very gourmet! Miky, Chris's step mother was tasked with the games. She too did a great job, the games surely kept everyone on their toes. We are blessed to have such amazing ladies in our lives. The guys in our lives are great too...but this was a ladies only event.

Here are some photos of the event:

In addition to spending time with our families for the shower, we got a couples massage, purchased our stroller and carseat with money that we got from the shower, got a top tier made of our wedding cake, we went to dinner at the Melting Pot which is something that we had been meaning to try (interesting, but we'll probably never go back) and we hung out at my parents house while they barbecued! We had so much fun. We took about 4 days off just to prepare for and enjoy the festivities.

Celebrating 16 and 1...and many many more to come!
