Baby Shower time...already?!

It seemed so far away when we picked the date...I guess time flies when your having a baby. My sister, Cheryl threw me the most lovely baby shower. It was really fun to have old & new friends, family from near and far, co-workers and church mates all together to celebrate our little one coming soon. Boston is already so spoiled with all the wonderful gifts we have recieved. Lots of excitment is in the air... lately my mother is so giddy and happy it is really all she can talk about :) Anyways the day was perfect, I really was not feeling like being the center of attention which is why I can't wait for Boston to arrive (then the attention can go to him instead of my huge belly). My favorite part of the shower besides the company was of course the "frost/decorate your own cupcake bar"! It was scrumptious...here are a few pics, ending with the grand finale of me at 34-35 weeks.

My sister and the cutest decorations :)
The favor...my mom hand painted all of these, I think it took her 2 days!
The cupcake bar...yummy!
Me opening presents

The games seemed to never end..but this one was fun to see people who don't have kids change a diaper and dress the baby in the relay race.
More presents!
My neighbor Erin had the winning ticket & won the gift basket for bringing diapers!
Me at 34-35 weeks...almost ready to pop out my little thanksgiving turkey!

The invitation was so cute too! Sorry I missed the day. I was on a trip with the Stringham clan (and my hubby).
