Luke's Baby Shower Weekend

The weekend has certainly made me feel special! I got to see all 4 of my favorite friends at the same time and celebrate Baby Luke at my Long Distance Baby Shower!  Checking the mail this week has been so much fun. We've been getting lots of sweet gifts and cards from our friends and family.  I saved all of them and opened the cards and gifts on Saturday with Jessica and Susan at my house and Skyping with Brandi and Diana. 

Talk about a long distance shower... Jessica drove in from Phoenix and Susan flew to Las Vegas from Kansas to be here with me! I'm so lucky to have all 4 of these girls in my life :O) 

I got to see everyone over Skype, meet Brandi's new baby boy --- John David, talk babies, and open gifts.  Plus, they got a tour of the baby's room and Owen spent lots of time showing off for his buddies, Tristen and Sara Beth. 

Not only did Brandi and Diana plan the shower and mail invites to our family and friends--- They designed and mailed decorations that Susan and Jessica put up all over the house and coordinated for them to pick up food and cupcakes for us to snack on during the shower. 

Every detail was adorable... water bottle wrapper, cupcake toppers, banners, balloons, streamers, and ribbons. 

I love the "Special Delivery" banner! So fitting for a long distance baby shower where all the gifts were delivered to us in Las Vegas. 

Diana and Brandi really thought of everything---- Water bottle wrappers, cupcakes toppers, matching plates and napkins, balloons, streamers, banner, and food! 

We got lots of cards, gift cards and even restaurant gift cards for dinner after the baby is born! 

I loved getting new clothes for Luke. He'll have tons of hand-me-downs, but these new outfits are extra special since they are just for him! 

Brendon's mom sent us a new baby monitor! 

Is it possible to love a bib? ...Because I think I love these elephant bibs! 

I was so excited to get an Ergo Carrier for wearing the baby. I've been talking to other moms about how to manage two little ones and everyone seems to swear by the Ergo. I can't wait to try it out! 

I'm in LOVE with the burp cloths and bibs that Meamaw made for us! She even made matching shirts for Owen. I can't wait to see them together! 

Owen couldn't wait to eat the Milk & Cookies cupcake! It is a vanilla and chocolate chip cupcake with buttercream frosting and a cookie on top. Yum!

We are so thankful for all the gifts we received and can't wait to use them with our new little guy! 

Tristen, Owen and Sara Beth loved seeing each other again.  Technology is so cool! 

I'm so lucky to have such wonderful friends that are excited to celebrate with me!

  1. Yay! I can't believe it all worked out. So grateful to Jessica and Susan for being our hands and feet in Vegas. We are so blessed to have you as our friend, and so happy that you felt special. That was completely the point! I'm still giddy about the shower!
