Nautical Baby Shower with My Family

Yesterday, my family threw me a nautical baby shower and it was so much fun! They put a lot of time and effort into make everything so cute and special.  Here are some photos from the shower.

My aunt made the cake herself.  She’s a fabulous cake maker and even made my wedding cake.

My cousin Marie is so talented when it comes to flower arrangements.  I love hydrangeas so much.



This photo of my dad and I always cracks me up.  You gotta love the 80s!

One of the coolest gifts I got was baby booties made by my Great Great Grandma Pasour (my dad’s dad’s mom’s mom) from my Aunt Daffy.  My sister-in-law also got an identical pair (she’s due the same week as me).

I received so many wonderful gifts and can’t wait to use them all with Baby E.

Here’s a shot of me, my mom, and Jen, my sister-in-law.


And here’s a shot of my Aunt Tonya and I — the shower was at her house.

I feel so incredibly blessed to be given such a special baby shower by my family.  Thanks so much to everyone who made it possible and everybody who came.  I can’t wait to bring Baby E into such a wonderful family.
