my first shower!

yesterday i had my first baby shower hosted by my friends katie, melissa, and ashley. we nicknamed it "the ge shower" since all three of them and most of the guests were either ge wives or employees. i was also able to invite four of my close non-ge friends from greenville - ashley, tammy, leslie, and lynn - to attend as well. the shower started at 1pm, and we had such a great time that i didn't get home until after 4pm! the girls had appetizers, lunch, and cake all ready for us when we got there, and everything looked so nice. we also played a couple of really fun games, and i got to open a ton of gifts for baby boy mart! i was excited and grateful and wierded out all at the same time ... i'm having a baby!! here are a few pictures that ashley took while we were there.

when i finally got home, john helped me unload the car, and we took the gifts up to the nursery so he could check them out. they ended up (if you know me at all you will be saying 'of course' to yourself here) in a nice and neatly organized pile on the floor. check out our little guy's stuff!

i cannot tell you how blessed i felt to have such great friends who would be willing to plan, cook, purchase, wrap, and/or drive for us and our little one. i know it takes time and effort to do those things, and i so appreciated them. a huge thank you to katie, melissa, and ashley for throwing me my first shower and to ashley, tammy, leslie, lynn, julissa, noemie, sara, and brandy - who brought baby ian with her! - for coming. i love you guys.

ps. be on the lookout for pictures of baby ian in the near future!
