Katie's Surprise Shower!


Having my beloved sister, Katie, here to visit was AWESOME. It was so hard to let her go home! But it makes me excited that I will see her again soon, and next time, I'll be able to hold little baby boy Walker in my arms! Meg had us all (my Mom, me, Katie, my nieces) over for a mini-surprise shower/tea; she is always so good at decorating and hosting! I captured a few photos, but it was just fun to celebrate with Katie and spoil her with a few things for the little one coming soon. Molly was VERY willing to help Aunt Katie open her presents....she was so cute (and helpful!) :) Moll and Annie also helped Meg bake all the goodies...cupcakes, rice krispy treats with peanut-butter and chocolate (YUM), cookies....all colored bright blue in honor of the little baby boy joining the family. :)



Can you see those adorable napkins? Meg found them - perfect for Katie...preggo with an umbrella for all that Seattle rain... we were so thrilled Katie got some sunny weather during her visit.

Molly decided it was only natural to open gifts first!... she picked out the perfect pillow to give to her new cousin. The pillow has a big giraffe on it, just like her "baffy" lovies that she adores. It matches the "jungle" theme bedding and other registered items Katie has picked out for him.
Hmm...finally - time to eat! Yummy cupcakes await...Love the blue frosting in Molly's toothy smile...

Annie was hilarious. She dove face first into this cupcake! Hey - no shame in that! ;)

Aww, sweet Molly-Moo, who undeniably inherited her Daddy's blue eyes


Katie, Annie, and Mom chilling on the couch...hah- looks like Molly is sneaking another cupcake in the background

At the park - chilly and windy - but at least sunny! Looking at this picture, you would never know in a million years that Katie is 7 months pregnant! She amazes me!


Molly was giving the baby hugs and kisses goodbye...her tummy is so beautiful. This close up is probably my favorite - I just love it.


This is the closest I've gotten to holding that little boy in there...soon enough though! What a wonderful visit - thanks for coming, Katie!!! We love you!!
