Our friends are the best!

So yesterday the small group from church that we host in our home came over at 2:30, the typical time. I'm thinking, yeah, another chance to fellowship and learn with these awesome folks.

Um, no.

They surprised me. With a baby shower!

You see, even though this is my third baby, I subscribe to my Mom's theory. Every baby deserves a shower and at least a few things that are new just for them. Plus with 4.5 years between Jonathan's arrival and this one, we're short on a couple things. I guess the purging/sharing bug got the best of me a few times.

But I really didn't think we'd get any kind of shower. LOL. Abigail looked at me and said, "I told you there might be a surprise one." In all her seven-year-old maturity and wisdom :-)

I wish the picture showed it better, but the cellophane wrapped tower is an incredibly clever diaper cake that my friends Barb and Stephanie made. That's Barb behind me in the first picture. These are the same friends who last weekend helped us with yard work. Have I mentioned how blessed I am with great friends!?!?!?

There are diapers on the bottom two layers, then onesies bundled for the top layer. Pacifiers and spoons were stuck in as decorations with a rattle on top like a cake topper. It was very clever, and I think these ladies should start a business. I know I'll never look at wrapping baby gifts the same way.

We're hitting the point where this baby could come anytime. It's hard to know since I usually go early. But we're under a month to the official due date. So if you suddenly notice a lull on this blog, you know why.

I'm probably at the hospital without those critical items: a laptop and internet connection. Horrors!

How fun, Cara. Hey, hard to tell, but I don't think you look much bigger than you did when I last saw you a little over a month ago. But I'm sure you must be :-) Counting down the days with you!

Getting so excited for you! And I love baby showers. I had three with Tanner. LOL. Church and then one on both sides of the family.

The best part is after everyone goes home and you get to just go through everything. Sigh. So glad your friends did this for you! :)

Oh sounds like such fun just one question what are onesies on the top layer?
you look very happy.
