Busy Weekend...Baby Showers and Family Time!

What a weekend! It was a busy one for sure. It is always so much fun going to my hometown and spending time with my family. There is no place like J-town. :) Mark and I left early Saturday morning. My mom was helping host a baby shower for a family friend. Erin is 6 weeks ahead of me. It was such a cute shower and so much fun getting to compare bellies. :)

This picture below just makes me laugh. First, I look like a giant...I am obviously the closest one to the camera. (at least that what I am telling myself) I had such a great time! We sat around an chatted forever! It's funny because we all grew up going to the same church. We follow each others blogs and still had lots to talk about but I felt like I talk to them every day. Ha! Standing next to me is Ashley with her daughter Evy Kate, Erin (it was her shower), Kristal, and Whitney (who is on the verge of joining the blogging world).

Isn't that cake so cute.....
Saturday evening we went to the "First Annual Jackson Senior Trivia Night." There were not a lot of people there but we still made it a great time. Mark and I, my parents, my sister and her fiance, and my brother who is a senior!! It was good family time. We did find out we don't know much trivia. :)
Sunday after church I had my first baby shower! It was beautiful! My great aunt, and 2 aunts gave me the shower. They always do things so nice.
My great aunt made the diaper cake, her first time to even make one. :)
My mom gave these to me. It brings back SO many memories. My sister and I had suitcases that we used when we visited grandma. We spent EVERY Saturday night at my grandma's starting when we were infants and we were still going when I drove us there! Grandma would always get us ready for church. My mom thought the backpacks were more appropriate for boys...I agree!
What a great weekend. It's a busy busy week for us! My best friend moved in for 9 weeks last night. She is finishing her last nine weeks of clinical for school and we live near the hospital where she has to be. This was planned way before Mark and I even knew we were expecting. :) It's going to be fun though....we have never lived together!

Today is our 24 weeks appt.!!!! We are so excited, it's been since 18 weeks since we have seen the boys on ultrasound. WE CAN'T WAIT...I really can't....check back for an update. :) Happy Monday!
