Chelsea’s Baby Shower

We had such a wonderful time celebrating Chelsea and baby Isla!

I hosted the shower here at the house and went with a woodland theme.

Karen’s boyfriend, Don, made all these cool wooden bowls and was kind enough to let me use them for the party.

We had a nice turnout. Our family isn’t huge, but just about everyone was able to make it and we got some nice pictures.

The boys were thrilled to see that Chelsea was still there when they got home.

We had a nice time. I accepted my limits and purchased lots of finger foods from Trader Joe’s.  I usually try and make a bunch of stuff, but cooking isn’t my strong suit and I just plain don’t enjoy it. Instead of a cake, I asked Paul to make his famous cheesecake. He didn’t disappoint!

Chelsea was blessed with so many awesome gifts. Little Isla will be well provided for!

How cute is that quilt!!!

I can’t believe I’m getting another niece! It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that my little sister is going to be a mom. The years really fly by. I’m so excited for her and Nate and cannot wait to meet sweet little Isla.
