Showered with Blessings.....

From the front door flowers that had "It's a Boy" ribbons.....

To the delicious and sweet cake, it was a day to honor and.......

Shower a sweet Mom to be with lots of love and an abundance of presents!!!

Jill and my dear friend Linda organized the elegant and fun day. The tables were set with quotes about Motherhood, and the most delicious array of goodies to enjoy.

It was a cozy time for Meghan's friends and family to gather....

to enjoy tasty treats and....

....an abundance of gourmet dishes.

Oma made her handmade chocolates in the shape of baby buggies and booties for everyone to take home as a remembrance of a very special day.

There were so many gifts....many of them made by hand and given from the heart. Oma made the most intricate baby blanket sure to make Donovan cuddly on his dedication day.

I am sure you guessed that I made a quilt....with an ocean theme to decorate Donovan's beach themed nursery.

Cousin Jacquie continued the tradition of a hand made blanket ( just gorgeous).

...and Linda made a crocheted blanket so that Donovan's Mommy has lots of choices to keep her baby boy cozy and warm.

Jill ( with her year of Mom experience) provided all of the essentials for the Mom to be.

....and her sweet friend Kristen gave a shout out to Meghan and Dustin's alma mater!!!!

It was a time of great joy and now our sweet Mom to be, and two excited Grandmothers count the days to Donovan's arrival. We couldn't be happier.....we couldn't feel more blessed.
