Okay… We didn’t know that was Ellie Mae in there. I’m slightly late in blogging this. I have no excuses. Only a husband 5 kids, three of which are homeschooled and one who is a tad high maintenance, three chickens, a dog, two fish, a glorious garden, a photography business…
I’m teasing! I love it all!
This shower for my sis and bro in law was a group effort. Full of sweet touches from people who love them dearly. We grew up in a small town and went to a small high school and both of us have kept in touch with our high school besties. They all offered to help. Even an old co worker of Amanda’s came early to help! Amanda is super loved. Amanda’s friends helped… my friends helped… it was awesome!
This was on the drive to Mill Valley… the clouds on the cake match the clouds in the sky!
The cake was made by a friend of mine… She is super talented! Shan
lives in the Sacramento area, the shower was in Mill Valley. Thats 88 miles. This was a well traveled cake. I was SO wound up and stressed out traveling with this cake! But, we made it!
Lady in the red leggings… Nancy. She loves me and Amanda like we are hers. We are. Her love language is feeding people, and ours is eating. It was a match made in Heaven. 😉
See that food table? Nancy and Danielle did all that.
And the couple on either side of Jillian… Dave and Danielle. They love me. Maybe Amanda too. 😉
If you look closely you can see in a few pictures some random things like small pin wheels, ribbon and rid-rac. Those were contributions from the little girls. They were so proud of their efforts!
Not only do Shans cakes and cookies look amazing… They taste amazing! I’m pretty sure I ate two of those huge cookies. And a piece of cake.
The dessert table… Amanda’s friend Jane contacted me and asked what she could do, I held my breath and just asked for what I REALLY needed… Baby’s Breath clouds. Much to my delight, she was all for it! And they were better then I could have imagined! And to add to the perfection… Katie’s gift. I saw it and asked if I could use it as decor. This was such a group effort. Letting go and letting others help with this shower is really what made it so special!
Mommy and Daddy… how adorable are they? And my niece got the best of both of them! She is even cuter then her folks. 😉
An uninvited guest. Or maybe we were the uninvited guess?
The “guestbook” onsies to sign and we also had diapers and sharpies and asked guests to write funny things on them, to give mom and dad something to laugh at during those long nights.
Amanda and Siobhan… Siobhan and Amanda
Me, Amanda and Siobhan. (Clearly we were on a hill and I was on the downhill side.)
Besties and baby besties!
