Baby & Bridal Showers

Weekend before last I had two showers to attend.  Actually one to attend and one to host. 

The one that I attended was a bridal shower for my brother and his fiance, Angela.  They are getting married tomorrow, October 2.  Our grandmother and aunts hosted the shower which was attended by lots of our extended family and members of the church where we grew up.

Jennifer was there and I was so excited to be able to actually see her two weekends in a row!  This was also where I broke the news to my family that I was expecting...  It was definitely a great surprise!

Angela and Keil, opening presents.

The shower that I hosted was a baby shower for my friend, Brittany, and her baby, Addison Clay.  One of my responsibilities was to make a diaper cake.  Mom and I were scared and definitely had no idea what we were getting in to.  Luckily, there are great websites on the Internet that include awesome step by step directions that say just exactly what to do.  Needless to say, we were very proud of our finished product!

This was the cake table.  Do you see the pumpkin that is surrounded by cupcakes?  It is actually a cake!  Isn't that amazing?  I didn't get a chance to eat cake but everybody that did said it was wonderful!

We were shocked when the RSVP's started coming in for the shower.  There were 54 people who were invited and 45 RSVP'd that they would be there.  There were approximately 50 people there.  It was definitely a little stressful but luckily for Brittany, everybody brought amazing presents.  She was able to almost complete her registry at one shower.  I was so excited for her!

See the green bath tub on the top with the pink bow?  That was my gift!  It was filled with bath accessories and some onesies for Addison :)  I hope that she gets lots of use out of them!
