Everyone was asked to send their gift by a certain day so that it would all get here in time for the shower. So packages had been coming in for over a week and it was so hard not to open them! We stuck them in the garage so I wouldnt be tempted.
The plan was to do a video conference through Skype while I opened my presents, but they werent exactly sure it was going to work. Plus the time difference created a bit of a challenge. But they got the video conference to work and those that were able signed in and were "there" with me as I opened all my gifts!
Janaya sent a box of decorations, so Lee got those put up and then we were off to the races. Lee's mom Sherry, my sister Heather, Janaya, and Cheryl were all on the video call celebrating with me. It was great to see familiar faces and to share in this exciting time with great friends and family.
We have been so spoiled with gifts and are so thankful to everyone that contributed to this fun event! I have the best friends in the world and I dont know if they will ever know how much all of this meant to me.
Lee took some pictures to share with those that couldnt be there. They arent too cute, but I will post them anyway! I am too bloated for cute pictures at this point.
