Forney Baby Shower

I know, I'm horrible at keeping up with this! I'm going to try really hard this week to get caught up with all the posts.

On September 28, My sisters (Tracie, Kerrie and Chanda), my Mom and my Aunt Mary hosted a baby shower for me at the Reagin House in Forney. They did a great job with all of the food and decorations! I had a great time seeing the family and friends that were able to make it out. Here are some pictures from the shower.
Here is a picture of me at 28 weeks.

This is a plaque my sister had made for Karlie's room. I saw this poem in Greune this Summer at a store and started crying. I told Tracie and Aunt Mary that I didn't care what else went in her room as long as I had that. So they found someone in Canton to make it for me. I LOVE IT!
Aunt Mary made this box and the cards that were blessings for Karlie. After the shower I sat down and read them all! They were very sweet and I got in a good cry reading them.
