Addie and Emmie's Texas Shower

On March 10, we had the wonderful opportunity to celebrate Addie and Emmie with our Texas friends and family. My aunt was very sweet and hosted the shower at her house, and it was so much fun! In a lot of ways I still can't wrap my mind around the fact that two little girls will be joining our family very soon, but this definitely made it seem more real. It was also so nice to see people we don't get to see all that often living so far away. It was just a fabulous day all the way around!

 My awesome hostesses.
This is my Aunt Jan, sister-in-law Amy, cousin's wife Kristy, cousin's girlfriend Ashleigh, and me.


 I love this sign my mom made the girls.

 Ben relaxing in his Nana's lap.

Cute banner.

How adorable are these cookies?? They are from Cookie Couture Co. in Mansfield.


 To you these just look like cookies.
To me, they are little drops of heaven. They are called fingerprint cookies, and I love when my mom makes them! Apparently my Grandma Sherry used to make them a lot too, because everyone at the shower got really excited about "Sherry's cookies" when they saw them.

 My sister, Hailey, and me.

Large and in charge!

 Our friend Wendy made all the yummy cupcakes, and my mom made these cute toppers. In case you didn't notice, my mom was chief crafter for the event.

 My aunt did such a good job with all the cute decorations!

 Love these cute little birds.

 My dad's cousin Marca and her daughter Elise.

My cousin's daughter Maddie. Poor thing has zero personality...ha!

My friend Jessica and Mr. Ben. Who is getting about 12 teeth right  now!

Micah and Katie. I was so excited these two could make it. We all lived together our senior year at Baylor along with another three girls.

 And the aftermath. We were truly blessed by everyone who came out to help us welcome our girls!
