Our 2nd Baby Shower

This past weekend we  traveled down to Matt's hometown for another baby shower thrown by his side of the family.  The trip in itself was awesome...but the shower was icing on the cake!  The details were kept a secret from me once again and boy was I blown away by everything!  I haven't gotten all the pics back yet but couldn't wait to share with you all!

The shower was hosted by my sister-in-laws (Dayna & Nicole), my mother-in-law and a close family friend (Jenny).  Let's start with the decor...colorful and gorgeous!  Without even realizing it, I matched it all too. :)
Nicole made these gorgeous ribbon trees!  She let me have this one for the nursery since it matches perfectly!! :)
As for the food... what a spread!  Two types of homemade soup (Lentil and vegetable), sandwiches, pasta salad, fruits and veggies, samusas, bacon and cheese ball...and  the punch... oh my word.  (I have a thing for punch! haha).
The cake... was amazing!  Dayna and her mom made the cutest preggo belly cake from scratch...seriously impressed and eager to be taught how!

We played games, laughed and just enjoyed each others company!  It was seriously an awesome time with some lovely ladies.  The gifts were beyond what we expected for Baby C!  We received a lot of clothes to fill the closet and a lot of useful items to make our baby's first years comfortable.

Matt's parents got us a digital camcorder to make home movies! 
One of the hostesses, Jenny made this gorgeous diaper cake!!  How cute, right?! 
We also received a couple gorgeous gift baskets full of goodies!

And some pics of me with family and friends.  Like I said before, I still haven't received pictures from everyone so I don't have many of all the ladies who were in attendance.  I do want to take this time to thank the 20 some women in Matt's life that took time out of their Saturday to come shower us with love and support for our soon-to-be here addition!  We feel so blessed!!
