A Sweet Shower for J.D.

My mom and sisters threw a little shower for us last weekend. It was so sweet. Kasey had it at her loft (which is super fun and trendy), and it was so special to me. We had just a few girls there who are some of my closest friends, and I felt very "showered" with love, gifts, friendship, and blessings. It was so fun to open little boy things and to think about having a little boy (in less than 5 weeks!) who will use them!
Kasey, Kara, and my mom worked so hard on preparing everything for the shower. It was perfect! My mom even made this precious diaper cake.

It was so fun to have Jim's mom there too!

Here are a few of the girls who came. For some reason, we didn't end up getting a picture of everyone. They are all so special to me. I was honored by each and every friend who came.

One of my favorite gifts was from my mom (please ignore my fat face in this picture!). When I was opening it, she told me that it was a "used gift." That seemed confusing to me, since there are no boys in our family who could have originally used something. I opened this precious pair of jeans....and she told me they were my dad's when he was little! They have a leather tag on the bag that has "Bubba" etched in it.
I am not usually very sentimental, but what a special gift!

Kasey probably worked the hardest on her gift for J.D. It was this amazing afghan...that she crocheted! My grandmother tried to teach both of us to crochet...and Kasey was the only one who ended up learning how. I didn't ever catch on. There is no telling how many hours she spent on this beautiful blanket. Thank you, Aunt Kasey! I love it...and I know J.D. will too!

What an honor to have such special family and friends.
I am so thankful J.D. will be loved by all of these special people!
