Baby Shower of the Year!

So my mom and Shannon hosted a baby shower for me this past Saturday at my dear friend, Laura's, house. It was incredible! They did such an amazing job and I was so blessed by everyone's help in preparing and all the thought that went into it. They seriously went over and beyond to make this day so special for Elsie and I.
There were so many moments when I would get overwhelmed and have to take deep breaths, not because it was crazy but because every moment was a reminder of how great our God is and how he has blessed me with so many great people in my life. I kept thinking "We don't deserve all this" and "Elsie is going to have such wonderful people to influence her in her life" So to keep myself from blubbering every five minutes I would just take deep breaths and bask in God's greatness.
I will let pictures explain the shower otherwise I could be writing a novel about it because it was that awesome! I will say just in case you can't tell from the photos, the theme was mainly pearls and lace. Pearls because of Elsie Pearl. Even the favors were cell phone charms hand crafted by my mama and had glass beads that resembled pearls. I just realized I don't have a picture of those. They were beautiful.
Entrance table... Guest filled out a return envelope, grabbed a raffle # if they brought diapers, selected a hand crafted name tag and browsed the photos upon entering.
This is the only photo I have of the table settings, this was set up the night before so there were still a few details added for the shower
Hungry anyone?The food was every pregnant girls dream, or regular girls dream, it was all so amazing!

Cake please! Chocoalate Cake filled with strawberry souffle!

Stairwell filled with gifts!!

Guest enjoying their food
I had two very special treats! I had not one but two people fly in for my shower. Coincidentally they both flew in from the Bay Area. Jessica my cousin and Tricia!!! Wouldn't have been the same without either of them. I was so touched they came out.
Best hostesses ever!
Me and the proud Grandma-to-be
