A Valentine's Day Shower

On Valentine's Day, my mom hosted a baby shower at her house for me. It was a great way to catch up with a lot of people at once and get a chance to visit!

At my last shower I was so terrible about getting pictures with people, so I tried to make a point to get several this time around!

Here I am with an old friend, Jen. Her husband was stationed with David a few years ago during deployment. Now she is preggers with her second baby and due in just a few weeks! And here are some of my favorite people in the universe! I have adopted them as my "in laws" even though I truly have no relation to them. Mrs C has always treated me like a daughter and I just love their whole family. That would make Val my sister I guess, and I wouldn't mind that at all! Mrs. C made the softest, sweetest blue blanket for the baby! I will treasure it!

My super fun friend, Kelliann, was my Maid of Honor in my wedding. I wish we would have gotten to spend some more time together before I left town! She always keeps me laughing!

Adison made herself comfy amongst the presents! Don't you just love those blue eyes?

My brother, Benjamin, and his fiance, Jamie, drove down to spend the day with us. It was so much fun to see them both! Thank you guys for coming! It is hard to believe that the next time I see them, it will be their big day!!! Hooray!

And here is my favorite teacher of all time, Mrs Hilger. She was my high school English teacher. She has managed to teach four out of the five of us kids. She now has Haaley in her class which is hard to believe since Haaley was about 4 years old when I was in her class...
Thank you to everyone else that made it to the shower! It was so wonderful to see you all and to have you share in this special time!
And thank you Mom for making it such a special day for me! I had a great time! I love you!

I can't believe that Haaley is in Mrs. Hilger's class! How OLD are WE?

It was so great to see you and to celebrate your happy day! Time sure flies, doesn't it?! Can't wait to see pictures of your little guy and hopefully meet him if you make it back out this way before we leave.
