Baby Shower!

Wow what an eventful weekend we had! Friday after school Kyle and I left for the valley for our baby shower! We got there at about 8:30 and soon after Stormy and Shane came and hung out, it was so much fun to play like old times :) The next morning I think baby girl knew it was her baby shower day because she decided that at about 5 that morning she was ready to wake up, which meant I felt her in my ribs which made me not be able to sleep anymore... so after a few TV shows and a movie, everyone else woke up and we started to help my mom get ready for the day. She is so amazing, the shower turned out wonderful! Her and Whitney did an awesome job!

We had a really good turn out, baby girl is very much loved already and she isn't even here yet! We had about 30 people there and we were able to get everything that we needed for baby's arrival. It was very much appreciated and we are so grateful for everyone! We also had a "diaper drawing," you brought a package of diapers and got your name in a drawing for a prize. We got about 15 packages of diapers, with a very good variety of different sizes so that's really good! I wish we would have gotten a picture of the table, my mom came up with a little Christmas tree that was all decorated with baby girl ornaments, and a light pink table cloth with a runner that said "I love Grandma" in really cute different prints, it was so adorable! She did awesome!

While we were playing at the shower Dad and the boys (Kyle, Steven, and Derek) went out for pizza... my Dad told me that since they were giving me a shower they were going to give Kyle a bath :) Funny Funny Boys :)

Here are some pictures, I wish we would have gotten one with everyone that was there and the table, but I'm afraid we had too much stuff going on and we totally forgot :(

Here is Chelsey, Stormy, Me, and Whitney

The girls rubbing my belly for good luck :)

Talking to Grandma Bochat on the phone and starting to take things out of the bags to sort and really see what we got
We did however get a picture of the diapers!
Sunday morning Kyle and I left for Holbrook at about 7. We got to Holbrook just in time for my sunbeams class. Needless to say I was exhausted after such a busy weekend, went to bed early, and slept in this morning :) I have all the 0-3 month clothes washed and in baskets and I have baby girls diaper bag all packed for when we have to go to the hospital... we're ready! When we were loading the truck with all the stuff (it took the entire back of the truck to bring all the stuff we got from the shower) Kyle said "Okay Alli, we're ready, pop her out!" I wish it was that simple... :)

HOW FUN!! I am so sad we missed it! BUT that doesn't mean we aren't excited for you! and can't wait to meet miss baby girl. Odie ended up being sick ($164 later, dog meds are expensive!)and we had a CRAZY ZOO of a weekend. I love what Kyle said, okay pop her out! ...SHEESH... if only.

Yay! So glad your shower was a great success. Wish we were closer, I would love to see your adorable belly. Does baby girl have a name yet? Is it a secret? I can't wait to find out!!

By the way, thanks for the shower invite. Seriously, it made my day that you girls thought to send me one. It's hanging on my fridge!! :)
