Two weekends ago now, I traveled up to VA for a shower for the babies thrown by some of my mom’s closest friends. Really all these women we’ve known for 20+ years & they’ve been like my 2nd/3rd/4th mothers growing up. Some of their daughters were also able to come too to celebrate the babies. And the bump got a little lovin’ too.

Hostesses & I, beautiful food & punch

The joint effort from the hostesses meant a fabulous food spread: curry chicken salad & rolls, veggie & chicken wraps, Carolina caviar & scoops, fruit, Nancy’s famous deviled eggs, cookies, bon-bons & the best lemons squares I’ve ever tasted. Along with a great punch {who’s recipe I snagged to share with y’all}.

Fun family friends

My mom & her friends love games. Since I am my mother’s daughter, I too think games are pretty fun. The guests played bingo while I opened gifts, they did a baby word scramble, & a pass a gift left or right game that I’d never seen but was super fun.

Speaking of gifts, the babies were once again super spoiled! Lots of necessary items given by the ladies who are already grandmas {matching outfits, hooded towels, baby wash & lotion, sunscreen & books} & fun things too {Wuba Nubs, mini Sophie teethers, the stroller hook, shopping cart covers & Santa outfits!}. And I made quite the faces as I opened gifts again this time too {I swore I was going to work on that}!

Gifts galore for the babies!

The gifts with the funniest response from the group: the photos on the breast feeding supplies from my Nana {the twins brestfriend} & my Mom {hands free pumping bra}. Mom also found our second crib set on clearance at her Target, so she snatched it up. Yay for having all the crib stuff! Thank you so much family & family friends! I can’t wait to take the babies up to VA to meet them.

Now comes the fun part, setting up the nursery & organizing our den turned babies central. Hopefully that’ll be finished within the next month so I can help decorate {before I’m too big, tired, or on bed rest}. I’ll be sure to take & share photos of that too of course.
