Our Baby Shower Weekend…

Last weekend we had our baby showers…yes we had more than one! The weekend started off on Thursday with some much needed mani/pedi’s with my Mom and Aunt. Then we picked up some sewing supplies to make the bed skirt for the crib. My Mom showed me how to make it and when we put it on the mattress it fit perfectly!

On Friday, all the ladies hit the malls for some fun Las Vegas shopping. That night, we went to Hash House A Go Go for dinner, which was really fun! Brinley wanted breakfast, and they did not disappoint!
On Saturday, Anisa, Crystal and Sallie hosted a tea party for just the girls. The room was set up so cute and the tea and food was so delicious!
I drank my entire pot of blueberry muffin tea, it was so yummy!
Each person got their own tea pot and each one had a different warmer on it, they were darling!
After we ate, we played some fun baby shower games. One of which was to pass around a measure tape and each person had to tear off the length that they thought would fit my belly…then they all had to put it around me to see who won. Crystal guessed exactly right, but she was hosting, so Sarah graciously took first place, which only about 1/2 inch off!
Here’s a group shot of all the ladies having our high tea!

Saturday night, Steve Distler threw Vince a guys shower. They had a poker tournament and if you brought diapers, you got extra chips. Needless to say he came home with A LOT of diapers! Thanks guys!!

Sunday was the main baby shower. The girls had it set up with a fall theme. Everything was decorated so cute!
There was so much yummy food, omlet station with two chefs, sandwiches, salads, eggrolls, breakfast food and more!
Anisa made us the cutest diaper cake! It matches the nursery perfectly!
Here’s Vince adorning his “Proud Dad” hat!
The gift table at the beginning of the shower. By the end, you couldn’t even see the table and there were even gifts piled on the floor! Everyone was SO generous and we are so thankful for all the gifts!
This was the delicious dessert table, which I hit at least twice!
During the shower, they went around selling raffle tickets for prizes and the money went to us for diapers. Thank you!!
Here’s some of our friends who came out for the shower.
Rory was bartender for the shower…in the picture he must have stolen Vince’s “Proud Dad” hat!
Our dear friends, Marie, Lanny, Crystal and Rob. They made this event so special!
Aww, we are such a cute family!
These are the best girls anyone could ask for in their life. They put together this whole weekend for us and did such a spectacular job. They each hold a special place in my heart.

Another group shot of some of our great friends who came to the shower.

The proud new Mommy! This was the first time we got to see baby Jonah, who was born in July. He is such a cutie! The Sferra’s came in from Phoenix to celebrate this time with us.

I got to finally open my gift from my Mom, which was the baby blanket she made for the nursery. It turned out so cute and I absolutely love it! Thank you so much Mom!

Rob and Crystal got Anillie her first little Angel’s outfit, which is just the right size for her to sport next baseball season, yay!

So happy that our wonderful friends could come and celebrate with us!

The Farkel’s!

It was such a fun weekend, I was so sad when it was all over and everyone was gone. I will remember these moments my whole life, it was so special to me and Vince and I can’t wait to share these memories with Anillie. She is so blessed to be born surrounded by so much love!
