"babies" shower # 1

wow. what a weekend i had! i've got so much to catch you all up on in the blog world but that's got to wait...

for now i want to tell you all about the amazing "babies" shower that some church friends threw me 2 weekends ago. seriously, i left the shower feeling so overwhelmed and blessed by the amazing church family that God has given us, and way more equipped to bring greer home soon and welcome charlotte in may. pink and blue stuff is currently spewing out of both kids' rooms, and i LOVE it :)

for your viewing pleasure, here are a few pictures and details from the shower:

some of the cute blue and pink decorations! there was a blue ribbon wreath with a "G" and a pink ribbon wreath with a "C". so fun and now currently hanging on the doors to our kiddos' rooms!!

this is my sweet friend, denise, sharing some thoughtful words that made me cry like a baby!! denise has been such a great role model for me in regards to parenting children to have a heart for God, and i'm sure i'll be soliciting a lot of advice from her over the next many years!

my mother-in-law, me, and my momma:

some of the other lovely ladies and friends who came to share in our joy:

the thoughtful gifts:

blue for greer & pink for charlotte:

and best of all, my dear friends and wonderful hostesses {ginny, denise, ashley, me, lindsay & cheryl} for the shindig:

these girls each mean a lot to me and i'm so thankful for how God has used them in my life. they represent a lot of long talks, tears shed, advice given, and prayers lifted. many of them have also each taught me valuable lessons about being a godly mother and i hope that i can continue to learn and glean from them as i step into this role myself.

so, that was my first ever baby shower!!! it was so much fun and i'm so grateful to everyone who came to celebrate with me. now it's just time to get sweet greer home and get this family thing rolling :)
