3 Wonderful baby Showers

I had the pleasure of having 3 wonderful baby showers as we began to prepare for Abigail’s arrival.

The first shower was February 20, 2010 at Jenni and Matt’s house. I loved this shower because it was a celebration of life. Jenni made the most magnificent food and had punches available for the pregnant and not so pregnant. On the television there was a looping slideshow of pictures of Bill and I when we were we were not posed or smiling. This was hilarious as I learned how often I am silly and enjoy sticking out my tongue in pictures. The pictures were of the many camping trips, adventures to Las Vegas, and fun times we celebrated together. We played a bottle game and dice game- and opened gifts. It was an AWESOME coed shower!

The 2nd shower was March 20, 2010 at Bill’s Aunt Rachel’s home in Golden Valley. This shower was about friends and family. Cindy and Rachel hosted this shower with delicious tea sandwiches, wonderful deserts, and fruit and vegetable platters. I was truly honored to have Abigail’s great grandmother Bet here from Florida, Bill’s Mom Cindy from North Carolina, and Bill’s sister Jill and Aunt Sue from Connecticut. It meant so much to me to have people come from so far for the weekend to celebrate with me. We played a few games that included naming the baby animals and filling in missing words in nursery rhymes. I have a lot to learn because I think that I did the worst. We opened gifts and laughed together. I loved spending time with family and friends.

The 3rd shower was April 3rd hosted by my Mom and her good friend Janis. This shower was filled with people I cherish from my past, friends of my mother, neighbors from Minneapolis and Edina, and family. I felt very fortunate that my aunt Diane was able to come all the way from Litchfield and bring my mothers childhood best friend Ruth Ann. I was delighted to see friends that I have not seen since Bill and I got married and catch on each of lives. We ate delicious scones, an assortment fruit and vegetables, and delicious deserts. I loved having the opportunity to introduce family, neighbors, and friends to each other and tell stories of past, present, and future. It was exciting learn how families have changed and grown.

I wanted to thank everyone for their support, generosity and kindness as we shared in the excitement of bringing Abigail into the world.
