I love baby showers!!!


My second baby shower was on Sunday, January 17th at my home, hosted by my mom, sister, Laura Jade, Katie, and Ashley!  It turned out really GREAT!  Chris's mom even flew in last Thursday to be at the shower!  Katie & her mom, Linda prepared all the amazing food!  We had piggies in a blanket, veggies with hummus, bruscetta, a 7 layer dip with chips, cheese/pineapple/olive (and jalepeno) thingys! It was all very yummy and nicely displayed! 
Laura Jade & Ashley Ardemagni did all the decorations & game.  Ashley made me a really cute diaper cake with onesies and headbands/hairbows all over it, and an ultrasound picture frame!
My mom & sister did the invitations/cake & punch!  The cake was amazing! Tresa had it done at Shelby Lynn's (where I got my wedding cake)- a white two layer cake with strawberry cheesecake filling! I'm not a big cake fan, but this cake was awesome!!!

We had a great turn out, my house was filled with friends and family!  After visiting & food, we played the yarn game - where my guestes tried to guess how big around my belly was by cutting off a piece of string!  I guess I look pretty huge, a lot of people cut their string WAY too long!  Sydney Mick was the winner!  Next, PRESENTS! : ) I got a lot of great stuff for Hollyn!
Here is a preview of a few neat things that I received...

I was 34 weeks on Sunday
You can see that Hollyn has definitely dropped since last week!  I've been experiencing some pretty intense "lightening" pains this week!  Still looking forward to my doctor's appointment on Monday to see if we have made any progress!  I have no experience in this, but think she's coming early!

While we had the camera out Sunday morning, we had Chris's mom snap some shot of us around the house.  I did some quick editing with Photoshop, and here they are!
