My Surprise Baby Shower for Katelynn

So here in this picture my friend Amy tricks me and says that we are going to hang out for a while . I thought we were going to go down to the harbor and walk around a little and then maybe grab a bite to eat. On the way there Amy says she needs to drop off something at the church real quick. I asked her if she wanted me to just stay in the car and she's like no come in I want to show you our banner we made on our Mexico mission trip. ;) So here I go to walk to see a banner in the church. She takes me all the way around the opposite side almost (our church is a HUGE circle) to see this banner and we just cant find it. :) She says why don't we just go in here (the Hospitality room where we do most of our showers) and there were all my friends. My first thought was oh my gosh I forgot about somebody's shower because being pregnant 3 times your brain turns to mush. There were all my friends and when I saw my family I realized it was for me! :) So here are a few pictures of me being surprised. This was a week and 1 day before Katelynn was born.







































































Beautiful tables...



















and food...


















and flowers....


















Yummy! I didn't get to try these but Stephanie promises to make them again.










Adorable center pieces ( thanks Dee!)











Thank you to all who were involved in my shower, to Deanna, Jodi, Jaime, Laura, Brooke, Christi, Amy, Adrianne and Stephanie. If I missed anyone you know who you are and I really appreciate all of you and all of your sweet generosity. I totally didn't expect a shower seeing I was having another girl back to back, but the diapers and wipes are a tremendous help and Ryan and I truly appreciate everything! Thank you!

So glad it worked out well! There was lots of behind the scenes talk about what we'd do if Katelynn came early because it was so close to time. It was fun and we love you guys so much!
