~Showers of Blessings~

As we prepare for the coming of our little girl, we have been so incredibly blessed by our friends and family. I won't list everything that has been given to us, but we are well prepared with essentials and non-essentials alike for our baby!

This week, the ladies of my church gave me a shower. I was overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone!

I wanted to share a few pictures - I completely forgot to take my camera along, so these pictures are from one of the ladies who hosted the shower.

The theme of the shower was Winnie the Pooh. I love Winnie the Pooh, and am doing my nursery with the Classic Pooh (along with other decorations - I'll share pictures of my nursery soon!).

My friend's daughter made the cake:



Each table was decorated with a Winnie the Pooh character, a book, a balloon, little cutouts and adorable favors for the guests. The favors were teddy bear grahams and gummy bears wrapped in pink tulle and tied with a pink ribbon.



As I mentioned, everyone was so generous in their gifts! Some of the gift bags seemed bottomless, as I kept pulling out outfit after outfit, item after item!



I felt very special by how well-planned everything was. It was a very nice evening!

Oh how adorable! I *heart* Winnie the Pooh too. In fact I still have my Winnie from my childhood. (o:

I'm sure you had a wonderful time with your friends and opening their special gifts to you. The end of February will soon be here! My baby theme was Noah's Ark and animals everywhere, but I really like Pooh, too. :)

How sweet. I am still so excited you are having a child. They really are a blessing. Our Sara is three months now and just such a joy! I am not sure if you knew we were expecting or not.

We have just had one baby shower this past weekend...and two more on the way at our church...there are 2 girls and one boy...

Can't wait to see pictures of your little one!

Praying for a safe delivery!

Love,
Lula
