My Pregnant Sister and Her Baby Shower!

I had the privilege of throwing my older sister, Shonda's, baby shower this last weekend. It's her first baby and she's due about November 24. So far all we know is it's "Baby Blessing" because they chose not to know the gender. I guess we'll see when it makes it's grand entrance.

These first pics I wanted to take of her and try out some fun poses. I love how they turned out and I hope she did too.

I told her she might feel silly but just to go for it and the picture turned out so pretty.

The yummy shower cake.

Many wonderful and generous gifts

So in all this I realize there wasn't a picture taken of Shonda and I. Grrrr! Oh, well, happy shower, Sis! Love ya!

I realized that we didn't get a pic of us after I looked at my camera. :( But you did get some great pics of the shower. It was so fun. I just showed Jeremy all of the gifts. Now I can set up the room! Thanks so much!!!!!

You did a great job, I think photography is your new thing. Shonda looks so cute too, it doesn't look like she is carrying any extra weight. Tell her I said hello, and we can't wait to see what the baby is.
