Ryder’s Baby Shower!!!

On Saturday, my sisters gave me the most perfect Baby Shower for Ryder!!  From the food to the decorations, from the friends and family to the generous gifts….it was just all so wonderful!!!  I feel so blessed to have such an amazing circle of family and friends!!

Laura made the cupcakes and they were too cute!!!  The toppers are made out of chocolate so you could eat that part too!!!  She is becoming Martha Stewart in her older years!!!ha!

Another creative crafty project by Laura!!  She used some of the left over fabric from the bedding and made this super cute memo board!!  The last page of the shower invitations had a BLESSINGS card that people could feel out.  By the end of the shower…we had about 10 on there!!!  Such a great idea and this little cutie has a perfect spot in the nursery!!
