Westin's Church Shower

Thank you for your sweet words and excitement for us. I love your thoughts about Reese remaining the princess and angel she was always meant to be. Very very true.

Jason and I are still thinking of names. Well, at least he is! With Zach and Reese I read through a baby name book (even though we loved those names I had to be sure), so I'm letting Jason decide this time. ; )

Shannon's small group shower was so much fun Sunday afternoon at our house. I have been so excited about it! I wanted it to be fabulous for her. We had a great turnout despite the cold and rain. Young moms get out no matter what for a little break. ; )

The hostesses with Shannon

Jill, Helga, Lindsey, Shannon, me, Jennifer, Desty, & Abby
Guess how much candy is in each jar?!

A few gifts

I love this iron stroller. I borrowed it from my mom, and Zach enjoyed pushing it around saying, "choo-choo train."

My favorite part of the shower...little bites of perfection. ; )

Delicious punch

I am so ready for warm weather I went with a spring themed centerpiece in an iron basket. Shannon reminded me that Westin is due this spring, so it worked well!
The table with some of the goodies

Shannon received many wonderful gifts for Westin. He is going to love all of his toys and look precious in his little outfits. Not much longer until he arrives...I can't wait!

...seasons of refreshing may come from the presence of the LORD.

What a nice group and the house was decorated beautifully! Hey, I would love to know the punch recipe. Can you share? We are doing a shower for my Sis-in-Law soon and it looked really good! You could just email it to me if you don't mind :) You were so sweet to have that shower. I know it gets a little easier to do things like that, but hard still, I am sure. Can't wait to see what name Jason picks! You are so brave! :) I am sure it will be great! At least when I was naming kids after the first, I just stayed in the "A" section!!

What a beautiful shower. I would love to know where you got the iron flower planter, I have been looking for something similar to that to use for a shower that I am hosting this spring.
