Showers Of Blessing

I know I've written about this before here on the blog, but we have the most amazing and loving church family.  I have never felt more welcomed anywhere in my life, and it is such a wonderful blessing to be apart of Smiths Grove Baptist Church.

Doing life with our friends and the ladies involved in the Woman's Ministry has been a privilege, and I look forward to seeing them each and every week. As you know, we don't have "family" in town, but we do have a church family, and it is such as sweet blessing. 

Last night the ladies of the church gathered to shower our little lady with love.  I was blown away by the turn out.  I guess when you have a small congregation every gets excited for babies.  

We had tacos for dinner followed by Riley's Cake, and my all time favorite sweet treat...Tea Cookies!!  The decorations were so beautiful...and practical.  I'm going to use the centerpieces  for Ellie's nursery. 

All I can say is Ellie is going to be one well dressed baby. She got sooo many cute clothes. 

We joked that I'll have to change her five times a day just to make sure she gets to wear all of her outfits.  Ha!  Honestly, I'm ok with that.

It was nice to already have all the big stuff like bedding, swings, strollers, and such because that meant we got tons of fun things like shoes, bows, blankets, quilts, and monogrammed everything!!

We had so much fun, and I love that my van looked like pink threw up when I left.

When I made it home Eric couldn't believe that it took four loads to carry everything in.  I can not express enough the gratitude in my heart for the outpouring of love for our family. 

Not only did they shower our sweet Ellie with love, they showered us with the blessing of friendship and a wonderful church family.  I am so, so very thankful.
