My Baby Shower pictures!

Sunday was my Baby Shower and it was incredible!!!! It took me and hour and a half to open gifts and there was about 25 people or so that could not make it....can you imagine how long we would have sat there opening presents!!!! I was really praying that the day would be awesome, because I kept worrying and making myself sick over the fact that my Momma was not going to be there , but as always God wrapped me in his arms and got me thru it. I have an incredible family and amazing friends that love us so much and already love Franceska. Here are some pictures from the day. In the top left hand corner is me with my sister's, my besties Kim and Kerry that I love so much, and yes I am the tall one of the family but I had heels on so I looked like and AMAZON WOMAN! My cake which was made by Carole from our church, she makes such good cakes, they are yummy..... Myself and then me and my girls. ,my DIL Megan, daughters Chas and Astrud, and DIL's Amy and Traci, they are all the Sunshines of my heart!!! Just wished Kellie could have been there.....:(

The Guest book table with the Diaper cake I made, my neices Dominique and Mariah and their mom, my so ,so special friend Yvonne, my bestie Jessica and I , and then all of my hostesses: Gina, Wendy, Aunt Mary, Aunt Margie, Aunt Ida, me , Kim, Lisa, Jenny, Jessica and Kerry

The top is our living room floor full of presents, the next two are my dining room table that seats 10 and it was solid presents ,even my Hutch was full!!! And the last pic is of my extra long couch with layers and layers of clothes for Miss. Franceska!!!!

The first picture is the gift from my SIL , Franks sister Olga, It is a turning music box with pictures for all of the "Firsts" in a baby's life and the star on top is engraved Franceska Danielle Rodriguez on one side and August 4. 2009 on the other, and on another area it says , Love , Aunt Olga. It is absolutely beautiful and I will treasure it forever! The second is a handstitched/crosstitched quilt that my Daddy bought me at a benefit and had Kerry wrap it from him and my Momma.....need I say more?????? The next is the diaper cake I made :), and then just a shot of my friends and family some of them before the shower started.

The first is my MIL , Marcela and I, (Love her!), I had my two girls Chas and Astrud sitting up there with me, sorry again the guest book table and another shot of my grandbutton Josh, Reese and Rayn watching so patienly.... I am opening my sister Kerry's present, it took me about 15 minutes to open ! She has been collecting things for 4 1/2 years so it was quite a bit!!!!

The first pic is of just the stuff my sister Kerry gave me, it took all of our BIG chair and large ottoman, just unbelievable, she is something else!!! Im sorry some of these are duplicated, like the diaper cake and then here is another view of my dining room table, and then another view of the fellowship hall at church full of guests!!!
Franceska is set!! and then some ......it has taken me two days to get all of it organized into her room!!! I will post pictures of her closet again sometime this week. Our last homestudy update is tomorrow so see all of you soon!!!
Thank you to all of my hostessess , friends and family for loving me the way you do, for already loving Franceska the way you do and for just simply being blessings in our life. I love every one of you!!!
