Showered with Showers

Planning for babies is a thrilling yet overwhelming process in so many ways, and any expression of support in this process blesses us beyond words. This past weekend our friends and family in Memphis showered our family with affirmation through their encouragement and through their generous presents.  Here are some pictures of the unforgettable weekend.

My friend, Julie, made these lion cake pops!  Her time and effort spent making these paid off- they were incredible! 

Julie also made alligator and elephant shaped butter cookies to match the jungle theme of the shower.  Tasted like they came straight from a bakery!

My wonderful mama

Here's my Aunt Sharon, one of the hostesses of the shower, who is presenting to our kids the biggest teddy bear known to man...

who is appropriately named "Costco," thanks to the suggestion of a friend.

My best friend since I can remember and hostess of the baby shower, Julie!

A table was set up for friends and family to write messages to the little one we hope to bring home from Africa soon!  I can't wait to compile everyone's messages for our little one to keep for the rest of his/her life so that this child will see the vast amount of people who are praying for him/her and are anticipating this baby's homecoming!

Here is Mrs. Colter, another shower hostess, who was kind enough to host this event at her home! 

Below are just a few pictures of some of our sweet friends with sweet hearts...

Thank you, Lord, for such generous friends!
