Sunday was the day for all the festivities, which started with the baby shower. My mom and her good friend Amy hosted the shower and they did an amazing job- complete with icecream sundae station (which is a pregnant girl's dream, let me just say)!
The icecream sundae station- oh happy day!
Some of the adorable decorations!

I felt very loved and appreciated at the shower. There were so many wonderful people there that I have known since my childhood- it was a truly special afternoon that I will always cherish. Of course, I can't forget all the wonderful gifts I got too! People were amazingly generous and Kyle & I were truly blessed with all the gifts that we recieved. Some of the gifts were particularly meaningful though. We had a few handmade blankets given to us and my grandmother crocheted our little guy an outfit and blanket that is the cutest thing ever! Plus- my brother & sister-in-law gave us a llama themed gift basket that was awesome! Here are a few of the llama goodies:
We also got a few llama onesies, a llama bag, llama bumper sticker and llama mug. Too much llama you ask? Never!

After all the shower wonderfulness, we moved on to celebrating my grandparent's 60th wedding anniversary. It pays to have family member who work in the right places- so, we were able to have their anniversary dinner at the restaurant my older brother manages, TJ's. It is an amazing restaurant inside the Jefferson Hotel in downtown Richmond. The restaurant is currently closed for dinner, so we got the entire place to ourselves!
Enjoying appetizers- don't ask me why I'm the only one looking at the camera...

It was a great evening filled with family and wonderful food. Can't get much better than that! Our busy weekend was amazing, but exhausting. We're glad to be back home now and we're not going anywhere else in 2010! Now, we've just got to get ourselves ready for this baby- 9 weeks to go!
