Eli's Party!

Wow! Sorry it's been awhile since my last post! I haven't been this busy in a really long time! I have only had one night a week where I haven't had anything so I'm usually laying on the couch watching TV...

Well I had SO much fun at Eli's Party (aka, the baby shower)! I had no idea what to expect when Wes and I drove up to the party, but as soon as I walked in I loved every minute! We had so many friends and family there that it still brings tears to my eyes to think about it! I just felt so loved and I was so emotional I think because everyone was buying these precious gifts for someone they have never even met. My mom and my aunts were saying the night before the party that you feel so happy and so proud when other people say good things about your kids, and I know I don't fully understand that yet, but I think I got a slice of that at the party every time I opened the most adorable gifts for Eli from such sweet people! I LOVED it!

Jeff and Meredith really put on a great time! The food was delicious, everyone was so happy, and The Langford House was gorgeous! There were tons of pictures taken and here are a few of the ones that we have!

This was the cutest little coat that I have ever seen! It was a green, soft cuddly coat with little bear ears on the hood! Precious!

My aunt Judy, Sharon, me, and my mom. I was so excited that they drove in from Austin to be there!

Wes, me, Carol, April, Michael, and Robert (Wes' mom and dad, sister, and brother-in-law) at our house after the shower! Cute pic!

haha...notice the sign. This is the XXXL t-shirt Jeff bought for me to wear in the hospital with everyone's decorations on it...hahaha...

This is Jeff's van that was sitting outside the house letting everyone know where the "partee" was...hahaha...

Me, Meredith, and Hannah! Love you girls!!

Wes' Aunt Susan in blue, then Adriene, Robin, and me. I loved having everyone there!

What a wonderful, memorable time for you! I'm sure it made you all the more excited for Eli's arrival. Can you believe it's only a month away now?? I think we're both officially in the final stretch of our countdowns :)
