Baby showers!

Saturday was Shannon's baby shower. It was held at this little place called the Honey Tree Tea Room and as soon as I walked in, I saw immediately why it was so important to Shan to hold it there. It was the cutest little quaint setting for a shower. They had the whole upstairs designated for the party.
It was a fairly good turnout as baby showers go...we probably had about 15-20 people total. Yummy food and cake and Shannon got lots of great gifts. Our twins group had pooled together for a nice sized gift card so that Shan could buy whatever she felt she wanted most for little Mayah. The original plan was to get her a triple stroller so that she could get around with the twins and Mayah (her oldest, Ethan is 4). But she was never quite sure she wanted one so in the end we felt that the gift card allowed her the most flexibility.
It was really a nice things to spend the afternoon with Shannon's family and friends celebrating her new little one.
Across the country in California, another friend and member of the twins group, Jenn was also having her baby shower and some of the West Coast ladies from our group got to be there for her. I've seen pics on Tonya's blog and it looked like a beautiful day. Shannon and I talked during Shannon's shower about how we wondered how it was going across the country and how we wished we could be in both places at once! I would have loved to have been there for Jenn too!
I didn't get any pics of Shan's shower but did take lots on her camera so when she's feeling up to it I'll ask her to email me some. You can all check out the Staab family blog to see some photos of Jenn's shower which features a beautiful pic of Jenn . That was actually the first picture I've seen of Jenn so its wonderful to put a face with the name of someone I've known over two years now!
Today we switched out winter and summer clothes. The result is always the same. Drew needs new stuff. The girls need new stuff and everyone else is soooooooooooooooo set. And wouldn't you know...as soon as I switch the seasonal clothes and pack away the winter stuff...its cold outside today!
