All the hostesses!
A few of the little girls that were present!
Four of my players showed up for the shower, which was precious! They were so excited for me to open their gift! When I did, I found BUTTPASTE AND PICKLES, LOL!! It was priceless! They thought they were hilarious for buying me buttpaste and they are very aware of my obsession with pickles. There was also a blanket in there as well but they never remember that was part of the gift! Funny girls!
The pickles and buttpaste!
The players that gave the priceless gift!
At one point we took a picture of Kellen, Amanda, Amber, Brek, and I! Kellen, Amanda, and I all played for Brek at ACU and Amber was our trainer and is our co-worker now! Kellen is holding her daughter, Amanda is holding one of hers while Amber is holding her other, Brek is holding hers, and I am holding my belly/Ava:) It is pretty special that we are all still here and starting our families!
The group with the kiddos!
I also had several family members come! My mom and dad came up for the weekend so Mom could go to the shower! I was SO excited to have her here to meet the few people she still hadn't met and be enmeshed in my life here for a day! Bethany drove from Austin just to attend the shower since she did not make the First Colony Shower, -- PRECIOUS! Kayla and Aunt Vicki drove from Lubbock on their weekend together since Kayla didn't get to make the First Colony Shower either-- PRECIOUS AGAIN! My grandmother drove in from Seymour to come to the shower and came with my Aunt Janet, Cousin Tanya, and her daughter Summer! Thank you guys for thinking of me and making the special effort:)!! Love you!
My Mom and I!!
Also, Amber, one of the hostesses, a good friend, etc... made a diaper cake! It was awesome, so CUTE!
Thanks Brr! If you look really closely you will see the ribbons around the diapers
have Ava Reese on them:)
Finally, we were amazed at the hostesses’ generosity, all young married women and they got Ava's crib as their hostess gift! Unbelievable!!
Beyond that we were showered with many gifts. We once again were abundantly blessed by the graciousness poured out over us!
It was such a great day, I was very TOUCHED!
P.S. -- sorry the pics are small, for some reason they wouldn't go larger!
Anyhow, beyond that...
1. Season has now ended. It should not be over but we were unjustly left out of regionals! The girls on my team are crushed and rightfully so! They had an extremely successful season that ended to soon. Please pray for their spirits over the next several weeks.
2. Since season is now over, Jason and I have 10 weeks to get ready for Baby AVA!!! I can't believe it is so soon! We have a lot to do, so please pray we will be efficient and enjoy every minute of preparation!:)
3. I have not seen Jason's side of the family besides Mamma J since I have been pregnant! We go down there for Thanksgiving and I am so pumped to see them!!
I will finally end this long winded post! Goodnight!
