Luckiest Babies on the Block!

Baby stuff is just the cutest. Can I get an amen? We had the best weekend ever and we were completely loved and spoiled by our friends and family. And these babies? Well, bless their hearts. They're just at such a disadvantage because of their lack of attention and love. Wait...nope!

These babies have been prayed for for years now and since the announcement of their impending arrival they have been prayed over, showered with love and affection, and basically spoiled rotten. This weekend was no exception as we had an adorable and really fun couple's shower on Saturday night and then an absolutely precious and incredibly thoughtful ladies' shower on Sunday. 

David and I are so blessed to be expecting these babies. We do not take lightly the praise and thanks due to a faithful God who has answered our prayers in such a wonderful way. And now we are overcome with gratitude to our friends and family who made us feel so special and chose to celebrate with us this weekend. I'll cover the couple's shower in this post and the beautiful shower hosted by my mom, my sister, and my Nana tomorrow so I can remember each one in separate detail.

There was nothing but cute from the moment we walked up to the front door. Bradley MADE this. I can't wait to hang it on the front door when the babies get here.

I love the sign in sheet. By the end of the night it was an enormous balloon bouquet. The cupcakes were absolutely to die for. And what baby shower is complete without baby photos of mom and dad?

Are you kidding me with these diaper cakes? So stinkin' cute!! 

Dave and me enjoying this wonderful night!

Sister, sister. Or should I say, Aunt Kristen :)

The beautiful, fabulous hostesses! Lifelong friends and honorary "aunts". 

Bradley and Lynch 
(I've told y'all the nickname story before...They are both Allison's. In college the sorority house sounded like a locker room with all the nicknames, but it had to happen. It stuck like glue)

Boots! P got brown and C got red. #TexasForever #IDie. Thanks Aunt Kristen, Uncle Brad, and Wally :)

Daddy-daughter date night!! She's got her first outfit to hit the town!

Zsa Zsa and Big Daddy. Already fabulous grand parents! 

And while we're on the subject of grandparents...I am in disbelief that Dave's parents avoided the camera! I already told my mother in law we were going to have to stage some photos because they don't get off that easily. Parker and Caroline are SO, so, so lucky to have the BEST 2 sets of grandparents ever. 

Courtney, Meredith and Angie- wonderful college friends.

Me and my sweet Nana. She's the best baby holder out there!

My whole family! I still look at recent pictures and can't believe how we've grown in the last year! We might need to start bundling since our line is getting so long :) Love you all!

"Thank you" is never enough to tell people what their kindness, generosity, love and support means to you. But I hope you all know that Dave and I are truly grateful. We're grateful for your friendship, and we're grateful for all you have done for us to make this time in our lives so special. We can't wait for Parker and Caroline to meet you! XOXO

What a great job they did! And I just have to tell you that my sister is also a Kristen, but my kids call her Aunt Kicken. It started when my oldest was little and couldn't get out Kristen and the name has just stuck. So just in case your Kristen needs a fun name, I would definately vote for Kicken!

Oh my gosh! My favorite picture is of Dave holding up the dress. Him, Nick and Vrba's expressions in the background are classic and typical. Oh Dave....I can't wait until he's dressing sweet Caroline and pretty dresses and matching bows! :) haha.
