Baby Shower...

With the in laws....
Most people have a negative feeling associated with the word "in law", but not me. I honestly think I've been blessed in that department. I have 2 mother-in-laws and they are both wonderful! They threw a shower for me this Saturday and it was interesting to say the least.

I got there about an hour early to find both my MILs and one of their mothers happily chit chatting in the living room. It was nice to sit and talk to for while. During this time I decided I would give them the gifts I made to say "Thank You",

We had lots of great food and the guests loved the wine and beer. My MIL also loved her martinis. A little too much to be exact. She was quite drunk by the time we got done. Even stumbling when she came out to help put gifts in the car. I didn't mind too much as it provided us with lots of entertainment, but a little annoying in the end. I suppose that may have had to do with all my soberness.

All the gifts were great and it was nice to be able to laugh so much. Below are some pictures of the gifts we got. Hopefully soon I will get the pictures from the actual shower to share!
This is all the bathing and feeding stuff and a few blankets.

And then we have all the diapering stuff. Including 4 big things of wipes, 3 small and even some little bags to hold dirty diapers in if you don't have a garbage near by!

This is some decorations and other odds and ends. The sign for her door matches the bedding perfectly, which I also got, but it hasn't shipped yet. Some books, pacifiers and teething rings. And the little bear was made by her great uncle.

These are the clothes and some stuffed animals she got. I can't wait to see her wearing it all!

She also got these two outfits and I'm thinking one of them will probably be her going home outfit.

The following were not gifts from the shower, but were gifts I want to share non the less...

My father and stepmother surprised me with my glider yesterday afternoon. It's sooo comfy!!!
