As I mentioned briefly in my last post, my family hosted a sweet baby shower for me in Iowa over Thanksgiving. Can't believe it was already a month and a half ago and I haven't even gotten around to sharing pictures!
The shower was just lovely. It was so wonderful to have the chance to see so many of my relatives - some that I haven't seen in over a year - and to celebrate our upcoming bundle of joy. Hubby and I debated whether or not to travel over Thanksgiving - mainly because of convenience and cost, but I am so glad we decided to go ahead and do it.
So many sweet memories.
Here are a few photos from the day. All photos were taken and edited by my super talented sister, Sarah.

We started out with Rubber Ducky Punch. I found the recipe here and it turned out so adorable (and yummy too!). It was especially a hit with my cousin's little girls, who asked if they could take the duckies home afterwards!
We didn't have too much food at the shower because we had it in the afternoon after hosting a big family Thanksgiving meal. So of course, no one was really very hungry. Munchies and snacks were all we needed. But they sure looked beautiful!
We received so many nice things for our little one. Clothes and toys and books and blankets. I am so thankful for my family's generosity in helping us get ready for her arrival. Everyone was just so thoughtful!
After gifts we decorated baby onesies! I had seen this idea on Pinterest and suggested it to my mom. She thought it was a great idea so we did it! We just used fusible webbing from the craft store. Just iron it on to the back of the fabric, cut out your design, peel off the backing and iron it to the onesie. So easy!
We used a variety of different sizes of onesies so that they will hopefully last baby for awhile.
Some people made up their own designs, and I brought some simple patterns for those who weren't feeling as creative. Everybody's turned out adorable though.
When they were finished, we hung them on a twine clothesline in the dining room. So cute!
What a fun day! And what a perfect way to prepare for baby girl's arrival!
