My baby shower

I feel like I have been falling so far behind on everything happening in my life now, but when it comes down to upload pics to the computer, or clean my house because our caseworker is coming over for our supervisory visit, you know what I have to choose. It seems so hard to grab a moment for myself. But I have done it and wanted to post pictures from my shower. I have such awesome friends who put together a wonderful evening for me. We were able to do it before my mom left, which made it even better. Here are some of the pics:

The most adorable cakes by my friend Amanda

Just look at these super cute favors. I thought they were truffles, but when I got mine home and realized they were cake balls, I ate every last one I brought home. Okay, I left one for Dan and one for Tyler, but the rest were mine.

Dumb present of me opening a gift, but isn't the gift so cute?

I felt so loved. People were so generous--we got all the bedding for the nursery. We got gobs of diapers and tons of wipes. I seriously think I might not have to buy wipes for a year. We got some cute twin outfits, and several gift cards that I have put toward our formula costs. But the one gift that made me cry was this:
Tara has an amazing talent, and she made two of these quilts, each just a little different. She also reads my blog, and so when she saw the quote I put up a few weeks ago, she took that quote and embroidered it on each quilt. How awesome is that?

A big thank you to everyone who made that evening so wonderful. I love you all!

I am glad that it was so wonderful! I was SO SO SO SAD that I was not able to make it (since I was in California). Looks like it was AWESOME.

Angela, it was worth every second to see your reaction. Like I've told you before adoptions hold a special place in my heart, and you guys are so neat I had to do something special! Good luck in Austin this weekend.

Leave it to Tara to think of something so thoughtful like that. :) What special blankets.
