Xander's Baby Shower!!

Well, here are a few pictures I have of my baby shower on Saturday. My friends Jen and Kendra hosted it and did an Incredible job! It was so fun- and there was such a great turn out, good food, and fun games. It was a blast. I have to say, for my first baby shower, I am definately impressed :) I went from not thinking I would have one, to having one this good! I loved seeing some friends and family that I literally hadn't seen in months and years. I'm glad they came.

Jen made a super cute scrapbook for me to put my baby shower pictures in.. and she had all the guests write little notes and words of advice to me in the back of the book. I thought that was a clever idea.

Kendra and Jen took most of the pictures with their cameras since I was gabbing with friends and relatives the whole time.. so once I get copies of those pictures, I will post them.

Jen- the Party Planner!- and Me

All the girls thought it looked like I just had a basketball under my shirt.. (your right girls- I just wanted a bunch of free gifts- so I have been faking it this whole time)

My sister-in-law Misty is due a week after me.. she is having a girl (its cool to see how differently we carry our babies- since she is having a girl, her baby is really high, and mine is really low) I cant tell you how many times I've been in a store, and a stranger will come up to me and say, "Oh your having a boy!" I'm always like... "How do you know that??" and they say they can tell by the way I'm carrying my baby.

Mmm.. all the yummy food.. the cake Kendra made was heavenly... *pardon my drooling*

All the gifts I got.. I couldn't believe how generous everyone was (JEN!!). I am hugely grateful for everyone's gifts.. It got me even more excited (if that's possible) to have this kid! Except for the fact that I got- count 'em- 416 newborn diapers... and the mommies said I would use every single one of them... OH BOY. Better warm up my diaper-changing hands! Thank you everybody! I love you all!

The shower had a really good turn out and I could tell you hadn't seen a few of those girls in a long time. I overheard you talking about future girls nights. (TELL ME WHEN THEY HAPPEN) lol.... I can't wait to get lots of fun gifts in about 5 months. FUN FUN.... I'm sure you and Travis had fun looking at everything once you got home and opening everything up. It's like CHRISTMAS!!! So glad you had a good time. That was my only worry.

Oh P.S. I only had those two photos of you and I on my camera. I was too busy the whole time to take photos. I was writing down all the gifts and running the games so that was Kendra's job to take photos. And she took a ton. I want to get them as well so if she sends them to you e-mail them my way. I want to scrap a layout of your shower. P.S. we need to get togther and scrapbook again. I want to find some scrapbook place we can do it at here in Vegas. I miss ARCHIVERS in Boise.
