This technically wasn’t a shower for me, but the gifts were for Joshua, so I’m counting it as my first shower. This is something my sister-in-law, Joan’s, wonderful friends came up with.
Every year, Joan joins her the girlfriends she’s had since high school, and who are now spread across Kansas, Missouri, and Colorado, for a girls’ retreat. They’ve been doing this for 27 years and never missed a single one. This time it was at Linda’s home in in Colorado, and they really surprised Joan when she arrived, throwing her an Aunt Shower!
That’s a Dr. Seuss topsy-turvy diaper cake (not a real cake, but one created with baby diapers so it’s usable by the Mom) in the middle of the table! It’s now sitting on Joshua’s dresser. :)
This was such a neat idea. Knowing how excited Joan is to finally be an Aunt (we weren’t the only ones waiting for Joshua!), her friends all bought gifts for her to open and then pass on to her nephew. Knowing our nursery theme, they did a Dr. Seuss shower for her. Does she not have the best friends ever? How clever and thoughtful is this?!
Joan got some awesome gifts from her friends for us. Isn’t it amazing how someone can be blessed through another? Who would have thought that I’d be getting gifts from friends of friends? So crazy!
You might have seen that onesie hanging in the closet on my last Thankful Thursday – too cute!
We’ve already got these picture frames hung- they look GREAT in the room, but I have to show you another time since the walls are currently a work in progress as we are hanging things.
Joan brought the gifts home with her and they were opened a second time by Mom and Dad Miller, and of course Phyllis had to wear the hat. :)
We came to Abilene the night before my Lil’ Pumpkin Baby Shower to watch our nephew, Carson, play his last home game (he graduates this year – they grow up so fast!
Afterward, we stopped at Mom and Dad’s and Joan said “why don’t you sit down for a bit?” and I did, ready to visit a while before we had to head back to Wichita. But oh no, instead Joan surprised us with the gifts from her Aunt shower! Unfortunately I don’t have any photos to share of us opening them, but I assure you it was a delight! Just to give you an idea, here’s one from my Abilene shower where I had to wear the Dr. Seuss hat. lol!
Please come back tomorrow to hear about my wonderful Abilene shower hosted by Den’s family! Can you guess what the theme was?
