Celebrating Kelli's Baby!!!

Saturday, Feb. 14 was the morning of Kelli's shower. She chose to do it at 10 am, so it was perfect for brunch (and you all KNOW how much I love brunch foods!) Here's what our menu included: sausage brunch squares, ham croissants, fruit kabobs with yogurt dip, veggie pizza squares, cheese & crackers, proscuitto wrapped melon, smoked salmon on cucumber slices, deviled eggs with chopped pecans and bacon, and chocolate dipped strawberries. I think that's everything anyways. Oh - and that yummy punch that you make with sherbet!!! Everything was SO good! I'm SO mad I didn't take a picture of all the food!!! Anyways, we had a beautiful clubhouse that we had the shower at, and everything went so well! It was so much fun! Afterwards, we realized that this was the FIRST shower (bridal or baby) that we ALL were able to be at. It was so much fun to be together, and celebrate Kelli's baby boy that is coming in April!!!

I made Kelli a diaper cake! I LOVE doing these for gifts - they are sooo cute!

A friend of Kelli's (Melissa) helped us out with some of the plans for shower. Melissa's mom made these adorable little favors. She did little pacifiers out of lifesavers & jellybeans, and then these cute little booties that we filled with blue m&ms. I found some hershey kisses at walmart that were wrapped in blue foil and had "it's a boy" flags coming out of them. They were SO cute! We had these on all the tables - it looked really cute.
Since it was Valentine's Day, Melissa ordered a cake with blue hearts on it! :) It was yummy!

My sister Kim brought me down several outfits for Callie to wear that weekend (because we don't have any summer clothes yet - it's still 30 degrees here!!!) Kim's neighbor had sent them down for Callie to borrow, and this dress was one of them - it was SOOO cute!

Here's the "prom" picture - Kim pinning the corsage on Kelli.

I tied a balloon to Callie's dress, so I could see her at any time! :) She just ran around the room the whole time, waving and talking to the ladies. Every now and then, a sister would take her to run outside for a bit, but she really did great. I think it's because she thought the party was for her! :)
Mary was in charge of handing Kelli her gifts, and she helped keep Callie OUT of the presents too!

Kelli opening some of her gifts....this blanket may be THE blanket. (You know Courtney, how every mom has a FAVORITE blanket...i remember your post about Sawyer's blanket....and this one for Kelli even has the polka dots on it too!)
This onesie says "Daddy and I agree...Mommy is the boss!"

One of Kelli's friends has a diaper bag business (Note to Kelli for when I have MY baby!!! :) ), and she made her this ADORABLE diaper bag for sweet Baby Joseph when he comes!

Kelli's husband Scott is a HUGE surfer, so someone got them this cute little tummy time mat that looks like a surfboard!!!

Thankfully, these pictures were AFTER the shower was over. We had stacked up all the gifts and stuff to take home, and Callie somehow got into the diaper cake! (no worries, I fixed it later), but she looked at us like "I don't know what happened here people!" I think she was after the brush/comb that was put in the diaper cake - she had that in her hand and was brushing her hair when she was discovered!

Here's Kelli and Melissa - they have been running/training partners for 4 or 5 years now - done countless races, half-marathons, and marathons together!

My mom & sisters and I all got her the car seat that she registered for! Very exciting!
