Congratulations & late Shower Pics

I came downstairs today to start my 3rd day of best rest and of course the first thing I do is open up the computer to check up on blogs. Being wrapped up in my own world, wondering if every thing I feel low is another contraction, I had completely lost track that Shannon would be testing today. Even though she is not a person I know "in real life", I feel like I do know her after all this time. Between convos on GP, email and blogs over the last 2 years almost I know she has a great heart and a strong faith. So when I saw she had posted today, I got a little nervous. Blame it on the hormones or just pure excitement, but when I read the word PREGNANT, I immediately started tearing up. I couldn't be happier for you Shannon!!

My sister hosted my family shower on April 4. It was a lot of fun and we got so many wonderful gifts. We are extremely thankful to all of our family & friends. I didn't really get any pictures of me with family/friends, but here's a few.

Me, the morning of the shower.

My cousin April & I. She's the one that has given us so much stuff to use for the babies!

Delicious food and pregnant lady cake!!

We appreciate everything we were given, but I was most excited about the letters that spelled out the boys names. They are absolutely adorable and I can't wait to hang them up over the cribs. You may not be able to see them well, but they are decorated with the monkey theme.

This is my sister Kelly (left) and my BFF Amanda. We've been friends since we were 4 & 3. She's just like a sister.

This is James and his mom, Grandma Susan.
