Ellie Clare Gets Spoiled!!

DSC_0173
This weekend was a whirlwind to say this least! Saturday was filled with lots of friends and family. Sweet Cali opened up her home for my shower this weekend. Along with my Mom, sister Lindsay, Greta, Kim, and Rebecca the shower was amazing to say the least!! These girls pulled out all of the stops for sweet Ellie Clare. I was honestly overwhelmed by the turn out and all of the gifts. Let's just say that Ellie's closet is stocked up....

I will have to do another post tomorrow about all of the sweet outfits this little girl has....I'm not sure who is more lucky, Ellie or her mama?!! This is hardly half of all that she recieved. My sister was smart, and assigned everyone different sizes in their invitations. I now have a bin already FULL with 6-12 month clothes, along with all of the things in the closet. What a treat! This also doesn't include all of the adorable sleepers and newborn things to be washed for her arrival.

Janna made the trip down, along with Colleen. Both lifelong friends that I miss terribly at times. I did get the chance to talk to both of them for a while at the shower and catch up!

Cali had the great idea to make onesies for sweet Ellie during the shower. Here is my Mom and Aunt Annmarie working on their outfits. The final products are adorable:

Sunday I raced up to Lori's shower in the morning. Here she is opening her outfit from me! Isn't it so cute? I love the turtles, and the tulip hat!

Lori and I are due a week apart. I am SO excited to share this experience with her, and have playdates in the future. My other best friend Steph had a little boy on Saturday morning. She is in Rhode Island, so I will have to settle for photos instead of seeing him in person.
Stay tuned tomorrow for all of the goodies!!
