Cute As a Button Shower

Two of my sweet friends, Catrina and Caroline, wanted to throw us a little baby girl shower to celebrate our newest addition to the family. We decided on a date after the holidays, January 4th (Saturday), which turned out to be a day before a snow and super cold weather and almost 38 weeks along. So we hoped that all would be good and we could have the baby shower, and it worked out perfectly! No snow and no baby yet!
They decided on a "Cute as a Button" theme in our nursery colors, which turned out super cute! The girls made most of the food and d├ęcor, but did have cupcakes from Merritts (a favorite around here!).
The girls decided to invite couples since a lot of our friends here are Tony's friends too, and a lot of our friends brought their little ones so Cole had lots of fun and kids to play with. Here are the kids having a good old time!
In addition to friends, my Mom and Dad came in town for the weekend. We had fun hanging out with them as always! We had just seen them in Houston not long ago and they will be back when the little girl arrives soon.
Cole and Owen got into watching part of a movie and playing so much that they didn't even eat a cupcake! So they each had to have one before Owen had to go home. They were cracking us up with their HUGE bites!
We ended up having probably 20 or so friends/family here for the baby shower. It was really special and fun to see everyone excited to meet our little girl too! I've kind of missed out on some of that staying home this year...Cole is only sometimes excited about Baby Sister. :) We were blessed with lots of girl clothes, which we need if their poor thing wants to look like a girl...pink, flowers, bows, diapers, burp clothes, a sit & stand stroller...to name a few. We had a great time visiting with friends and celebrating our little girl who will be here soon! Due date is 7 days away!
