Rachael's Shower

Cindy and I hosted a baby shower for some sweet friends of ours, Brett and Rachael. Ben has been buddies with Brett since middle school and I got to know them in college, then we all ended up in Louisville at Southern together... we miss our time with them now that we are in Clarksville. Here are some pictures of the day:Instead of having a cake made, we decided to go with trendy cupcakes. A friend of ours from church made them for us... she loves to make cupcakes if anyone needs them made for their next function!
Cindy and I getting ready for the shower... it was a lot of work, but so much fun. I really enjoy organizing parties like this!
Somewhere along the way we decided that it would be fun to make cookies as shower favors... about half way into decorating them we changed our minds. We decided to take the easy way out and dip them in chocolate. My mom is the Cookie Queen and can make them look like Martha herself decorated them. I didn't inherit that talent so I will be dipping cookies in chocolate from here on out. They may not be as fancy, but they sure taste great!
This is going to have to count as my 34 week belly picture (actually I will be 35 weeks tomorrow). Rachael and I are actually both due November 23rd. Cast your vote by leaving a comment on who you think with have a baby first.

You both look great!

Laura, Thanks for the comment on our blog about Austin's prematurity. I didn't know you had a little brother who had been born that early. What a miracle! We met several babies in the NICU who had been born around 25 weeks, and they usually had an even rougher time than Austin did. Praise the Lord that your brother is doing well.

Thanks so much for the cupcake spotlight! I had fun making them. So glad they were a hit!

I'm going to guess that you will have Rex before Rachel has her little one.
