Not So Wordless Wednesday

My wonderful friends from church hosted a beautiful shower for me on Sunday.  We were soooo very blessed by our church family.  I don't think we can ever use all the cute burp cloths we received.  Although I am sure we'll come close.  We are truly blessed to be part of such an amazing church.  I thank God for placing us there everyday! 

With my mom before we left for church
The table was beautiful!

The cupcakes were delicious!

My fantastic friends were my hostesses.  Two of them weren't able to be at the shower due to being sick or a child being sick.

Isn't this tutu super cute?!
My MIL jazzed this bath towel up a bit.

The quilt that goes with our bedding.

A sweet friend from church makes the most beautiful onsies, quilts and burp cloths.  She made several items for Ellie

Checking out the gifts after the shower.

Barry's grandpa meeting Ellie.  He came with Barry's parents for the shower.  He hung out with Barry, Ellie and Papa at home while us girls went to the shower.
It was a wonderful day.  More than I could have expected.  My mom and I spent all day Monday washing items we received and putting other gifts away.

Oh my, the shower looks beautiful and Ellie really cleaned!!! As for burp cloths, I can tell you we go through them like water, but Jax has reflux so that's part of the problem:). You never know what you will and won't REALLY need until you get to know your baby, so it's good to just have it all:). Enjoy, momma!

What a blessing to have such wonderful friends to host such a beautiful shower. The decor was beautiful (fit for a princess I might add), the cup cakes look devine, and I'm loving the "Very Hungry Catepillar"! So happy you had such a wonderful day and that Ellie's great grandfather go to meet her, how special :)

Take it all in sweet friend, every second. She is perfect in every way.
