The Surprise Baby Shower!

So, my sisters-in-law (including soon-to-be) and my mother-in-law had mentioned something a while back about going out to breakfast just us together to celebrate baby coming, so I assumed we would just have a small little family thing.  Little did I know, my mother-in-law was planning a surprise baby shower for me!!!  On Saturday, I had wanted Joe to take me grocery shopping because we were in much need of some, and he mentioned something about going to the book store (I love that place, too bad books are so expensive).  So we went, and when we got back there were a million cars parked out front and a pink balloon on the mail box.  I was so excited!  No one has ever thrown me a surprise anything!  Some of the cousin's kids were there too, so it was nice for Ryker to have some friends to play with.  All the food was delicious and my mother-in-law made her delicious home made chocolate cupcakes (my fave, and probably everyone's fave once they try it!).  We visited and had a very nice time, and then we got to the presents.  Joe came back from driving around for some food and to open gifts with me!  Oh boy, were we spoiled...or should I say this little girl was spoiled!!!  I had Joe's cousin take pics of us opening gifts.  She took like a million so I am not going to post them all, but I will post a few.  It was so nice, and I just want to thank everyone for everything! :)

 Getting ready to open gifts

 A few of the guests
 Joe's sister Liana was kind enough to write down all the gifts for me.  She wasn't feeling well that day either, so thank you Lee for coming and helping even though you weren't feeling well!
 Little Livi wanted to help us... she is such a sweetheart and was a nice little helper!
 We got TONS of diapers!  Which is great!
 A couple of friends and family even got me some gifts (too nice!) and even thought of the big brother, Ryker! :) Thanks!

 I just threw this one in because I like the creepy look on my face!
 Pretty pink rose blanket from Joe's Mom.  She got that girl a million things. :)
 More guests...

 My other sister-in-law Tracy was so cute.  She wrapped up each individual thing in tissue paper and tied them up with super cute ribbon.
 And since I didn't want to post all billion pics and since we got more than the pics say, I just took a pic of a few of the items. Enjoy!

 Joe's mom picked out the cutest bunting(I think that's what they call those full body coats for babies) and check out that ADORABLE swimsuit! :)
 Excited to put this to use!
