Baby Showers

This is my first "Show us Your Life" post! When I read Kelly's Korner Blog this morning, I knew I had to be a part of this blog roll.

I had the best baby baby showers an expecting Mom could ask for. Between the 5 girls in my family and our 10 beautiful children, we have become Master Shower Throwers! When I was pregnant with Ella, my sister/SILs decided to split into two's and give me 2 showers. One in the town I am from and one in the town in which I currently live. They were both so beautiful and the thought that they put into these showers, every little detail was perfect.

This was the first shower they threw me and Ella. It was in my home town and all of my closest friends were there. It was held at my sister's home.

The best part of this shower were from these little cards. These are cards prayer cards! On each card there is a prayer for my little one. Ranging from my child's development up to her marriage. Of course I was sobbing! Each prayer held such a great significance in mine and my child's life. The prayers were passed through out the room and read aloud by my closest family and friends... Talk about powerful!

My sister always accents with beautiful flowers! I love that :)

Chocolate covered strawberries were delicious and also a great compliment to the decor! What you may not notice is that the light color is a pink. So delightful.

I have to say that these ladies have mastered the food! I mean what is better than shower food spread across a beautiful table for all to admire, maybe we should do some catering??

Here they are! My beautiful sisters! (and me)

And last but not least, Presents!

My next baby shower was just as wonderful! It was held in my current town so all of my new friends and my husbands friends were able to come. The food was amazing and I definitely had my share ;)

My SIL made this beautiful banner that says "Sweet Ella." I loved this and I even used it at Ella's First Birthday! Maybe I will use it forever more...

The cake was so delicious and it matched my invitations!

Every guest took home some of these beautiful cookies that had Ella's monogram on it!
I must learn how to make these.

This was such an enjoyable time in my life and I was so lucky to have so much Love and Support! Since I am in some crazy baby mode this week,it is fun to look back at all of the blessings a little one can bring!
