Shower of the Baby variety

II had my baby shower this past Saturday. I loved it! It was a long day though and I was happy to go home and relax and go to bed early afterward.

That morning my family had a funeral to go to. It was a beautiful service and the spirit was so strong. It was for a guy that went to my home ward from when I was young. He fought cancer for 4 years and passed last week. He had a wife and a young child. It's so hard to think about but I know they are comforted by the knowledge of the Gospel and that they are sealed for all time and eternity. 

After the service we went back to my parents house and had lunch. My dad and Sean had work so they missed out. We ate and let Noah and Cortney take a nap. Then us girls left to Ondas house to set up for the shower. Corey and Justin took the kids to the mall. 

The theme to the shower was Dr Suess. I got a lot of ideas off Pinterest. It turned out so cute! The food table was full of Dr Suess books to go with each food item. My favorite was the cake. I'm not usually a cake person. Our wedding featured a giant muffin and little mini muffins instead of cake in fact haha. But this cake was as delicious as it was beautiful. My sister Amanda had her friend make it. She is crazy talented and never went to school for it either. She just taught her self through the Internet. Amazing right?! My sister Amanda and brother Justin are lovely people and paid for the cake for me. How kind right :) I saved pieces for the guys in the family to have too a d they were very grateful. We saved the bottom half of the cake to use for a birthday cake for either Noah this year or Rebekah. Maybe we will do a party for when she comes home. We will see. 

The shower was pretty chill which was nice since last shower for Noah was way packed and loud since it was coed. I think it was appropriate and fun that time since it was the first child and a boy Sean wanted to be there. But this time having a girl I wanted it to be more girly party. We only played two games, the guess how big mommys belly is and gift bingo. After the game and gift unwrapping we cut the cake and ate of it's deliciousness. Most people left after the cake but the ones that stayed painted their nails and chatted more. I loved painting our nails. It was girly and fun. It was nice seeing all my friends and getting lots of adorable outfits for Rebekah. Also it was pretty funny that there were three newborns there and 3 pregnant women not including me. Tis the time for babies in my group of friends. 

Rebekah you are one lucky girl. Not only do you have a very loving family and cute cute clothes to come home to but you also get lots of friends for play dates !! We love you sweet girl. Only 7ish weeks til we meet. I'm now 33 weeks along. You are kicking and moving like crazy as usual. Daddy calls you his wild one haha. Love you! 

My mother in law took a bunch of pictures but hasn't sent then to me yet. I will post then as soon as I get them. For now here are the few I took.
