Baby Shower & Some Time with Friends...

One of my oldest and dearest friends, Rachel, is expecting her first baby(a girl) in February and yesterday I got to be a part of throwing a shower for her. It was a lot of fun and she got some darling gifts. There is something so sweet about baby girl things. Speaking of  "sweet"..... that was our theme, well "candy" was the theme, and I think we pulled it off pretty well. The colors were bright and just the overall atmosphere of the day was happy and upbeat.  I am so excited for baby Kensington Reeves and rejoice with Sean and Rachel as they enter into such a wonderful stage....... Can't wait!!!

here are some fun pictures of the day.... DSC_3555

Sweet treats : help yourself! :)




And here is the spread.... we went for a salad bar style...... Yummm......


It seemed to go over pretty well..... and I have learned my lesson...... one of those boxes of lettuce at Costco goes a long way. I have enough lettuce left over to feed A LOT of hungry turtles!



L ittle Miss Bekah was so excited to go to the "Big girl party". Here she is with grandma... already plotting what cupcake will be hers. :)




And here are the "guests" of honor...... Rachel and baby Kensington. :)



She got some really cute things......




One of my dearest friends. She has been such a blessing to me and I cannot tell you what a WONDERFUL mom she will be!!! Congratulations Rachel and Sean...... she is almost here!!! :)


After the shower...


For the past several weeks we have been going non-stop! Between parties, sickness, holidays, and several other happenings we have had little time to just hang out with friends (something that we LOVE to do.) So last night we finally had the chance to get together with the Lees. The girls acted like they hadn't seen each other in years and were elated to play together!

Anna was so excited to be able to sit at the 'big kid" table. As you can see we don't trust her with a plate of her own yet though..... :)



Bekah was thrilled to have someone to play dress up with and Riva and I even played a little dress up ourselves by trying little clips and bows on baby Lynnea. Look at all that hair...... so fun! :)
