Baby Shower

So, I'm a bit late with this post. I've been lazy this week, and I've meant to post, and I just never get around to it. I know, I stink.

We had my sister's baby shower this past weekend. It was SO nice. It wasn't a surprise or anything, she knew about it. But it was such a wonderful celebration. All our friends and family there to support her and her husband and these new babies. In a way, it felt like a celebration of everything she has gone through in the past year ... the cancer diagnosis, the surgery, the treatment, the surrogacy cycle, everything. And here we are, almost a year exactly from when you got her diagnosis ... and she went from finding out she had cancer and that she would never be able to carry a baby, to being cancer free, treatment free, and expecting twins in about 2 months!!

Here is me and my beautiful sister!

And with both the parents, my sister and Brother In Law!

And all the loot she got!

The shower was so wonderful, and very emotional ... my sister got up and spoke and pretty much made the entire room cry! It was a beautiful shower and a wonderful experience and I'm so glad it went off so well ... my mom and I put a lot of thought into it, and I think it came across!

Now we just need these babes to get here so that they can enjoy all the stuff they got! But not for another 7 weeks or so please!

Wow! That's some loot! How many people were invited? I guess if you're having twins, people have to buy two of everything.
A friend of mine had twins - one of the first to have a child in our circle of friends. I feel so bad now that it's my turn that I bought her baby grows - really beautiful baby grows but I bet they never got to wear them. It's just so tough to resist getting those small little newborn things and I just hope my friends are far more savvy with their gift giving at my shower than I was...

Lovely photos by the way!

Seriously, you look AMAZING. How are you fitting two babies in there? And your sister is beautiful and absolutely glowing...I wish you a very non-eventful couple of weeks and can't wait to hear that your niece and nephew have arrived in this world!

Take care--
