This morning my church gave me a WONDERFUL shower for Harper. It was just so overwhelming and perfect. I am SO thankful for my church family and my Sunday School class. If you are not plugged into a church - you are missing out - it is so nice to have an "extended family" of so many kind and Godly people. I love everyone so much!!! This post has about a ton of pictures but I want to remember it all! This was the front table where I had people sign my baby book.
This is my beautiful friend Rachel who prayed for me so hard when we were struggling for a baby and who encouraged me and I just adore her. She worked so hard at the shower and made sure that everything was just perfect.
There were 12 very special girls who helped throw this shower for me and I am so thankful for each one. They made it absolutely perfect and they are all sweet friends to me. This was a picture of me and 10 of them (and the food table!)
Yesterday I got a letter in the mail from Laurie that just made me cry. She wanted to give me "sisterly" advice and just some thoughts before I had Harper. It is something I'm going to treasure forever because I just love that we are raising girls together.
All I can say over and over is "God is just SO good!"
Me and the two Judys. This is my mom on the left and Scott's mom on the right. I was so glad they were both able to come and be there!
Two of my old TRI CHI sisters came to the shower and I was so excited! They are both very special to me and I was thrilled to have them there.
This is my friend Kelli that I used to work with and I miss her so much. She is one of my most favorite people in the world. I was so excited she came today! It was so good to see her and visit with her!
This is my pretty friend Isabel. She and her husband are moving soon to North Carolina and I'm going to miss them SO much. They were the first friends we made in Sunday School and we think the world of them!
My friend Hillary surprised me and drove up from Little Rock for the shower! I was so excited to see her that I almost starting bawling on the spot but I held it back. She came with Shannon and Katie and I was thrilled they all came. They are so sweet - they sat on the front row and watched me open all the gifts.
Laurie was so sweet to write all my gifts down for me. I enjoyed having her up there with me.
Scott and his dad came up after the shower to help us load the car - this is me with Scott and his parents. Scott and his dad worked hard all day fixing things around the house and putting together the stroller, the pack and play, the bouncy seat and anything else that needed put together. They were a HUGE help. And Judy helped me after we got home to organize things.
Me and 3 pregnant girls from class - we were missing Ginger. Vonda is due in May, Amy is due with TWINS in April and Robin is due in March. I love sharing this with them!
Mary Avery helped with the shower and her husband brought up her sweet little boy John Michael at the end. He is precious - even in an ALABAMA outfit. I would say Roll Tide right now but I have too many Mississippi State friends. (I just want an SEC team in the championship, ya'll. But I think FL might be our hope!)
I promise to post pictures of the nursery eventually - I just want to wait until I have everything on the walls!
