A baby shower!







My dear friends threw a baby shower for Gabrielle. It was such a special day surrounded by my closest friends and family. SO much love, SO much generousity! I was totally overwhelmed at times just thinking of how loved and cherished this child of ours is, then throw on all of the amazing gifts she received......comparing that to where she has come from. She deserves EVERY bit of it. One of my friends said it best after I opened the most gorgeous set of baby bone china for her, "Well, she certainly was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth, but she is having one put in it." We laughed so hard. She is so loved and has been for so long. I cried tears of happiness and feeling more blessed than ever. God is so good!
Oh, by the way, it felt so funny to go to my baby shower not physically pregnant......so I surprised my friends with a little funny and came with our referral picture taped to my belly! I have a cute pic of it, and started to post it and then realized you can see her face.........whew, that was close. You will just have to wait one more week! I am going to rub it in though, WAIT TILL YOU SEE HER!!!! :) She is a doll!
