So, you know the saying: 'April showers bring May flowers?' Well, we are hoping that is true for a little Riley Mae, because we had the most awesome surprise this week! A baby shower by mail! We literally went to the mail-box and it was filled with packages and cards for us that all came on the same day (mostly). We had a hard time carrying it all inside. It was so neat!
A huge thanks goes out to Brittany's parents, Aunts, cousins and Grandma who all banded together to make this happen and make us feel so loved and special. We are so thankful that we have girly clothes to help welcome a 'Mae flower' into the world now! She is going to be so cute...just look at what we received on her behalf:
(From cousin Tamara! Thanks so much cousin!)
(All from cousin Fawn! You are amazing woman! :) )
(Yes, these bows were homemade, and the gorgeous baby blanket too!)
(Look at these cute outfits! Yay!)
(And a leopard-bear, Riley's first stuffed-animal-friend.)
(All from Grandpa and Grandma Keel! Such adorable clothes! 2 dresses, a sleeper w/ matching stuffed elephant--thanks Gpa!, two fashion onesies, a 3-piece frog outfit set, and an adorable layette set that says "little sister" and includes those awesome socks that look like shoes. She's going to be so cute in all of them!)
(And such a sweet card! We love you G&G Keel!)
(All from Aunt Jana! Beautiful little dress, sleep n' plays, and matching caps, plus the cutest little newborn onesie that says "I love my Aunt." Can't wait to see her in them!)
(Grandma Viola, and Aunt Vicki sent these adorable finds: a newborn onesie that says "little sister", two bigger onesies that say "My Aunt is the Best" and "I was spoiled by my Auntie", two skorts, a little pair of cotton denim-looking bloomer-shorts, and a beautiful yellow dress that will be perfect for Easter next year around her first birthday. What a blessed girl Riley is! )
And as if that wasn't enough fun for all of us...Dean was remembered too!
