Thank you Dennis for typing this up for me!
The plan was that Karen and McKenna would both be here for a visit this week. So, we thought it would be great to give them a double shower since they are both expecting boys this September.
However, McKenna couldn't make it.
So Karen and Tyler will bring her gifts home to her.
Amy made the decorations from Kim and Kris's appearance on the Rachel Ray Show.
The picture below doesn't even do it justice.
They were beautiful, and now Erin wants to make some for Violet's nursery.
Love this shot of my nieces.
Lindsay, Ashley, Brooke, Whitney, and Carly.
We were able to Skype Karen's Mom in from Texas. She was right there with us throughout the shower, making comments and asking questions. It was so cool.
Karen announced the baby will be named Rich, which is her maiden name. Love it!
See those two little buckets? Wasn't that a creative way to wrap a gift for a little boy!
And Carly made her own wrapping paper. Are you kidding me?!
She is expecting her FIFTH baby in four weeks.

I don't want to show too many of the gifts or I will spoil the surprise for McKenna.
Fun my Dad popped in. But Susan had already left so he couldn't take her home.I don't think I got that story quite right.
Also, it was fun to see the new husband, Gard. My niece, Lindsay, had just gotten married last week.
Along with him came Bret, Whitney's husband. Aren't they CUTE!
The 2 hour separation for these honeymooners must have felt like torture.
Rivka and Hosanna were a little over the top about the balloons.
So they decided to take a few home.
I told Carly she may need to let a few out the window in order to see the road.
Amy does love this punch.
Don't worry, she didn't do this until after the guests left.
And, furthermore, please know that she gave me permission to post this picture.
We missed McKenna !!!
We would have loved to have her, and her little "baby bump" with us.
Also A BIG THANK YOU to Amy and Erin for working so hard to make this gathering so special.
There were many who attended who I purposely did not take pictures of...only because I'm trying to be less annoying with my camera.
