My amazing mother in law, Marva, and two dear sister in laws, Kelsey and Cortney, really out did themselves. They had been working and scheming for weeks, and you could tell!. There was so much love and attention poured into every little thing, it was so fun to see it all unfold! Since the shower was at my mother-laws beautiful home, and I was staying there for my visit home, they were so sweet and didn’t banish me from the house, but rather let me hang out and watch the loveliness unfold! I loved being around all the day before, soaking up all the the creative things going up all around me! The best part was they knew I was doing her room in purple, so they somehow managed to find all sorts of girly delightful things in that lovely lavender shade! I mean, I’m talking everything-from plates, to the cutest party favors ever-nailpolish-all different shades of purple, and hanging puff balls and lanterns (which they gave me afterwards and are now hanging in her room!!)…everything was purple!
I cannot even tell you how blessed I am to have married into this family. I am reminded of this fact often, but today was extra special. The excitement over this baby girl has been non stop, and the shower was another way for them to show it! Marva has been praying for grand babies since the moment Brandon and I said I do-almost ten years ago now! She has been so excited and anxious to have grand babies, and when we told her as newlyweds we were on the ‘five year’ plan, it about killed her, but she begrudgingly accepted…but I’m convinced secretly prayed that birth control wouldn’t work! But as we began to try, and we finally stared that things weren’t happening in the timing that we wanted, she started praying! She did get her first grand baby from Brandon’s sister Kelsey, a sweet little guy named Taj, who is two now! As so, her joy is multiplied to have another grand baby on the way, and this time a girl! She didn’t hold back either-it was so girly, frilly, and lovely!
The shower was perfect, and it was such a joy to celebrate with everyone!
Julie and Alicia Faumuina. Alicia hand made the sweetest treasures for our baby girl, including
a blanket, beanies, headbands, leg warmers!! and even some fancy onuses! I was amazed at her
talent and how she found the time with two little guys at home too!
Oh how my heart was so full after those two showers. What a blessing to be so loved on, spoiled, and pampered by family and friends!!
