Yeah for Baby showers!!!

 We had our “Family/Lifelong Friends Baby Shower” this last Saturday and it was more than I could have ever imagined.  I am constantly reminded of how blessed we are by our wonderful family and friends.  One of my best friends Kerri, my mother-in-law Joy, and my two sister-in-laws Jen and Kelli did a great job making Denver’s shower the BEST ever.  I cannot wait for him to experience the love from everyone himself.  He got a ton of wonderful baby goodies!!!  I was super surprised when my family from Kentucky and Houston made a special trip to Oklahoma just for the shower.  It was one of the best gifts ever.   Thanks to everyone for everything that you have done for Denver and us, you are all such blessings.   Here are just a few pictures from the shower.
The AWESOME diaper cake that Jen made...yes I am trying to talk her into making these for a living!
My wonderful friend Kerri, she is such a blessing to me!

We didn't even have to pay them to fold the tissue paper.  My grandma would be so happy to see this.

My amazing friends Vangie & Rhianon.  These 2 know me better than I know myself and they still love me! 

Em and I, she is my little buddy!

The best hostesses ever!  Jen, Kerri, Kelli and Joy

My friend Christa, she was my saving grace in nursing school.

My mom and mother-in-law, they can't wait to get their hands on Denver!

My family that flew in for baby Denver's shower.  Cousins Becky, Alex, Mia and my Aunt Dixie...my Aunt Teresa is missing in this picture but she also made the trek to OK.  I was going to try and photoshop her in but I'm not that good.


  1. I am so glad that you had such a great shower! I was sad to have to miss but I just couldn't work it out to where I could get off that weekend with it being my first week back from maternity leave. I am going part time as of march 13th so will be making more frequent trips down to okc. I can't wait for you and Grant to go and get Denver so we can all come and help spoil him! I love you all so much and can't wait to see you again.
    Love, Stef

  2. You had an incredible shower. Everyone did an amazing job! Denver is going to be rotten! :) He already has so many people that love him. I don't think his feet will hit the ground the first year he's here. :)

    And yes, I am an amazing friend because even though you yell, "INCREASE THE PEACE! SILENCE THE VIOLENCE!" to a bunch of middle school kids beating the crap out of each other, I still remained your friend. I don't know why, but I did. :)


  3. Your shower was awesome! I just had to tell everyone who asked that it was the best shower that I have ever been too! They did such an amazing job putting it on! And I can never get tired of hearing you talk, you are just too funny! So hearing the story of you going to Ethiopia (even though you had told it to me already) was such a treat! I could probably hear it another million times. I love that I can see it in your eyes the heart that God has given you for the people there when you talk about them! Love you guys!
