2nd Shower & Maternity Pics

Holt and I were showered by some wonderful friends a couple of weeks ago. We are blessed with some amazing/super creative friends! This shower was very special...I felt so loved and blessed by friends from all the different walks of life...Old co-workers, church friends, middle school friends, high school friends, college friends and family. It really was a special day:)

I have known this friend since 7th grade reading class...Her bangs were too tall for me to see the teacher, so I tapped her on the back and recommended that she maybe grow them out. We have been friends ever since:) Love you Thomp!

This was such a special gift...the VERY talented Katie and Mike Beitler painted this for the nursery.

Amy (Griff's GF), Aunt Lala and CoCo...My support team when this little dude gets here.

Holt's first pair of boots from Uncle Griffin!

My dear friend Amber from Church...I have gotten a lot of parenting practice from her two kiddos:)

The Hostesses...Minus: Mauri, Mav and Andrea:( Thank you girls for such a wonderful shower!!!

Our good friends the Grissom's took some maternity pics for us. Keith did such a good job!!

Our little dude loves to listen to music...his favorites seem to be Bob Marley, Guster, Coldplay and Death Cab.

I look pretty round:)

I can't believe how close we are getting....any day now!

Watch out! It's raining Ugly Dolls!!!

This past weekend was my Church/Family shower...and what a shower it was. I am truly blessed with Amazing friends/sister (hostess pic: see below) who really out did themselves. They made me feel so special and so loved...and I know Holt felt it too.

Jason and I are doing Ugly Dolls in the nursery (Another blog coming shortly) and the girls used them to decorate the shower. Mrs. Traci Duty is an Elementary Art teacher, so she had all her second graders paints these...How fun it that?!?! And Traci is framing one of them for me to hang in the nursery. It was such a special touch to the day.

This is one of my favorite gifts. My sister-in-law had this made for us. It is his name with the meanings and scriptural blessings below. Such a neat gift!! We have it hanging outside his room.

The Hostess gift....LOVE IT! I just know him and Holt are going to be best buddies.

Mr. Potato Head shirt..Thanks Katie!

If you know me and the person who gave this to us sure does (Thanks Ashley)...then you know I LOVE ketchup!! I sure hope little guy does too...

All the fun presents!

These two ladies are like 2nd Moms to me so I guess that makes them Holt's 2nd grandmas:)

Holt's real Grandmothers...I know they are going to be the best!

What a great shower and I can't wait for Mr. Holt to meet all his new friends!
