The Baby Shower

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

The baby shower was amazing, thanks to the incredible planning and copious amounts of hard work, decorating prowess, and culinary artistry of Sherry, Leigh, Cindy, Minga, Annalisa, Ravyn, McKenna, Cheryl, and Libby.  Wow, what a crew!! 

The games were a blast, the room and door prizes were adorable, the food was to-die-for, and above all the company was just excellent.  I was overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and affection and special wonderful things for baby Avelynn (and a few things for me, even!).  

The amazing decorations courtesy of Leigh and the girls' decorating prowess


That's my queen chair in the corner next to the lovely Annalisa


Check out the flowers, the cute baby bottle with candies, and the adorable decorations


Even the cupcakes carried the pink footprint theme!!


The decorating committee sure blew up a lot of balloons


The obligatory belly shot - wow I'm big!!


I got to meet my aunt Cindy! She and my mom look SO much alike! (Sherry left, Cindy on right)
