Baby Shower! {Colorado}

We had our first baby shower back home in Limon, Colorado over Father’s Day weekend. My awesome sister, sister-in-law and mom hosted…oh and Maelle helped for sure! Love these ladies.

They had awesomely, delicious, healthy yogurt & fruit parfaits and fun paper straws with the festive drinks. DSC_1086DSC_1085

It was so fun to see so many of my “moms” growing up in a small town. I had many of my “church moms”, “friend’s moms” and even my “Farm Credit moms” from when I worked there. I truly felt blessed to celebrate with all of these ladies.

Check out that adorable diaper cake from my cousins! The giraffe was made by my Gramps for my dad and his brothers – so it was a fun addition to the shower decorations and nice to have a piece of one of my favorite men there. DSC_1090

Lindsay had asked several of my “moms” along with my sister, mom and her to specify a characteristic that described me and to put a Bible verse with it to include on the mat of a picture frame.

They each explained why they chose that characteristic and verse – it was so meaningful! Lindsay noted that it would be a good reminder to me when days can be hard being a mother, but that I can remember these positive things and always lean on God.

Three of my best friends from high school surprised me by being there – they absolutely made my day and I was so glad to catch up with them!

Ronny showed up at the end of the shower to greet all of the ladies, and I’m glad we could get a picture with my Grams.

It was a great day, ending with a few maternity pictures by Lindsay.
