family baby shower

so, like i said before, last saturday was our family baby shower. it was downtown at megan and jeff's amazingly beautiful condo in houston. they threw such a beautiful shower. jeff, megan's hubby, is a chef at the houstonian downtown, and he is seriously an amazing cook! they came up with a fancy menu for the shower, and all the food was delicious! we had open faced sandwiches...chicken salad, lamb, and ham. all good! we also had bacon wrapped green beans and potato hashbrown things which were soooo good. for dessert we had yummy cupcakes and homemade strawberry iceream. it was seriously all so good!

a lot of people were able to come into town from josh's family, and it was great to see everyone. from my family we had people drive in from trinity, humble, needville, and pearland. we really appreciated everyone making such a huge effort to be there for us! the only hiccup was that josh had to carry my grandma up the stairs to the second floor where the main living area is, but she was a trooper and it went really well. i was worried about that part, but there was no need to worry. josh was our hero! :)

here are some cute pics from the day...
