Today was the big day! After days and days of preparation... weeks and weeks is more like it. The baby shower was beautiful! We had so much delicious food and wonderful sweet guests. All of our hard work paid off, because they were all thrilled with everything. I got so many sweet compliments. It's just worth it to me to go the extra mile to add special touches to make it memorable. Brittany was glowing and happy. You never saw her without a big smile on her face. We had so many family and friends show up. I didn't count, but it had to be over 50. You can tell by the full gift table that we has a full house. This baby is going to be styling in all these new outfits and I love all the books he got too. So many wonderful things! I'm always amazed by the sweet generosity of others. I appreciate that they love her and our family enough to come celebrate with us. Seeing all these cute things gets me even more excited for him to get here. I so can't believe that I'm going to be Grammy George in a few short weeks! :o)

What a fantastic baby shower. Brittany looked radiant and got lovely presents for the baby (who is going to be one lucky little boy to have a Grammy like you!). What a spread, I can see why everyone enjoyed themselves.

It looks very cute and fun. Sorry I wasn't able to make it. I did have fun being able to get away for a short weekend without Kaden. You know that doesn't happen very often. It makes me hungry looking at all those pictures of food. Love ya
