Baby shower pictures

As promised! Here are some pictures from the baby shower on Sunday.

The place settings were gorgeous...real silver and china, a beautiful cloth napkin, and seed packets in the shape of a onesie.

The centerpieces made the whole room look cheery. The flowers were planted in mason jars with some pebbles at the bottom and moss around the top. Rae made blue gel candles in little baby food jars. They were realy cute.

Amy put juice in these glasses. They looked so neat with their little tags.

Amy and Tony happily pouring drinks.

Amy spent so much time working on this cake. I think it turned out great! She said it was supposed to feed 40, but I think it could have fed at least 75. I couldn't have any, but she gave me a piece to put in the freezer to eat after the baby is born. I'll let you know how good it is when I have a chance to taste it.

Rae came up with some fun games that everyone seemed to enjoy. Even Rod and Tim got into the games!

This is the ridiculously huge pile of presents we got to open! In order to not completely bore our guests, we opened as fast as we could. Unfortunately, that meant that we couldn't look through each and every gift as carefully as we would have liked. Once I got home, I sat down and looked through everything...we got some awesome stuff!

Apparently Rod was really surprised to get some diapers...not sure what this face was about.

This is a picture of me opening presents. Hmm. I don't know what else to say about it.

The 4 of us all got to sit together and take turns opening presents. It was nice not to be the only one in the spotlight!
Since I was in the middle of the action most of the time during the shower, I didn't get too many pictures. But, hopefully this is enough to give you a good glimpse into how perfect it was. We can never thank Amy and Rae enough! My Mom, Rose, Brian, and Tony deserve a lot of credit, too. Thanks, everyone!!!
