Baby shower!!

Just after Valentine's Day, Melissa and Brad came for the weekend. Bobby had a brilliant idea that Mom and I should throw Melissa a surprise shower... so that's what we did!! She ended up being totally surprised, and had no idea it was coming! I was pretty proud we were able to pull it off! (Thanks to Brad for being in on the surprise!) We had 6 guests there, all friends from church and I was really pleased with the turn out. They all brought wonderful gifts for Lissa, and she was really grateful for everything since they are starting from scratch as this is her first baby. We played a ton of games (ok, so maybe I went a little overboard!) but I think everyone had fun! I had our friend Ashleigh (mother of twins) bring a bunch of socks for this game... All the socks got mixed up and it was a race to see who could sort them fastest. Melissa won! :)

I made her a diaper cake as my gift to her... it was super fun to make and I was really proud of how it turned out! (I'm so humble today... first the cookies, now the diaper cake!)

It's so fun having a sister... and it's going to be even more fun to be an auntie! :) I can't wait... just a little more than a month to go now!

Thanks for coming to visit, Lissa :) I had a great weekend with you! I love you, big sister!

Awww, thanks for posting these pictures. I was actually undoing the diaper cake on the weekend and couldn't believe how much work you put into it! I actually felt bad taking it apart! I'm glad you took pictures! Thanks again for throwing the shower for me. I was totally surprised and felt very special that you and Mom would do that for me!
Hope you're having a great week! Love you!
