Baby Shower #1

So, I was only going to have one shower to make it easy on both my mom and mother in law, but my MIL decided she wanted to do her own. So today, my aunts and mom, threw me a wonderful shower! It was my family and friends. 

I was very overwhelmed with the love I was shown. My aunts even had the shower catered! I was in shock!

Now I brought the camera and planned on taking a lot of pictures, but once people started showing up, I totally forgot. So here are pictures from the beginning of the shower!

The food!

Grandma (Great) Brown holding my niece Juliet

My friend Katie who I haven't seen in 7 years!

Sweet Linda from the ward

One of the coolest people ever! Jen!!! 

My sister and our crazy cousins!

The loot!
When I got home, I unloaded everything to get a picture. I just started crying! I couldn't believe how loved his little boy is already! My heart is full and I am so grateful for the people in my life! A big thanks to everyone who loves me and my son. It was more than I deserve.

General Conference :)

General Conference is one of my favorite weekends of the year. We usually go to my parents and the boys build models and the girls scrapbook. (I finally finished Aaron's mission album!!!!) Anyway, the Saturday afternoon session, I wasn't feeling too good and my feet were swollen, so I stayed home and lied in bed to watch. I started falling asleep when Neil L. Andersen started his talk. Right away, I knew it would be the talk that was just for me, so I sat up. I cried all the way through and wondered why this talk hadn't been given when I most needed it. But as I listened more, I realized that I wouldn't have listened. I was too bitter and frustrated. I am so grateful for this church and the blessings that I have received. And I hope and pray that the words shared at conference will be remembered by all.
You don't have to listen, I posted it more for my sake so that I could listen to it when ever I need it.
