pictures from the shower

I thought I would post pictures from the incredibly amazing shower our dear friends hosted for us the other weekend. (This way our family can see all the festivities)

If you missed the post telling the story - click here. Sarah graciously took all these pictures (thank you!) Im so glad to have them because this will always be such a favorite memory of ours!

enjoy!

Here are some of the decorations. The girls out did themselves AGAIN!:

"FOR HE'S THE JOLLY GOOD BABY... FOR HE'S THE JOLLY GOOD BABY"

and here we are surprised & looking around to figure out how all this happened

Party hats!

Then the party really started .. meaning it was time to eat!

Then the games started. All the hosts had come up with some hilarious & perfect games. The first one I was blindfolded & had to pick out which leg was Freeland's by just feeling all of them:

Not to brag - but I dominated this game! Kidding, kinda. But seriously, its harder than you would think when there are a bunch of harry legs like that.

Then we played a pictionary type game. Boys vs. Girls. And the words were baby related like: circumcision, breast feeding, etc. It was hilarious.

(girls won. obviously)

Then we played another game where Freeland had to try baby food while he was blindfolded & guess what the flavor was. Each round he competed against another guy. This was so funny to watch (and I was so thankful it was him & not me!)

and seriously.. I was AMAZED. Freeland guessed almost every single one of them without any trouble at all. The man knows his baby food. Im pretty sure he was also the only guy willing to take full spoon fulls too. So funny.

Between every game we opened a few gifts.

this one was from Becka & Kevin. The perfect gift from them.. a steelers onesie! (freeland doesnt like the steelers) so funny!

All the gifts were so overwhelming. And we were so thankful for everyone of them. My mom also sent up a gift for us to open. Lots of osh kosh bgosh clothes (and overalls) for the baby!

Oh I cant forget the cake:

The cutest guest at the shower (henry - not adam.. no offense adam)

Freeland was playing with him and 'somehow' Henry ended up with his food all over his shirt so thats when this picture was taken - with his shirt off!

SOOOOOOOOO PERFECT! (it was an inside joke that he said we could pass onto our son)

Then we played one last game where we both had to answer questions and see who was right without knowing what the other was saying. We bombed at this game. Apparently I dont know my husband! (kidding)

This was when we were asked what the highest recorded number of births from 1 woman was.. the answer - 69 kids. And our reaction: (promise its not staged.. we really did this)

a few more gifts

Of course - a Baylor Onesie! Super Cute! Adam & Camille got one for Henry too so both our boys can wear them at the same time! Matchy Matchy!!!!

me with the hosts of the shower.

As you can clearly see Freeland & I had SO much fun and were beyond blessed by all of our friends. I still cant believe the amount of work everyone went to so they could put this together for us. We especially feel blessed that since our family cant be closer to us we have so many great friends that support us & are so excited to celebrate with us!
