Baby showers

Everyone in my department at work threw me a baby shower last week. Well, I don't think the guys at work would appreciate the term baby shower so let's just say they took me out to lunch and gave me a Target gift card (which was so awesome of them). We went to one of my favorite places, Vintage Pizza. Sooo delicious. It was really nice of them to do that.
Then the next day, my wonderful mother and sister in law threw me another baby shower. Here they are getting prepared for the event.

My mother-in-law Debbie made me this awesome cake. I don't know how she came up with it, but it was so cute!
I got a lot of great gifts that were much appreciated (and much needed). My face is getting bigger and bigger by the day. Perhaps that means the baby will come soon?One of my friends in my ward made me this blanket. I love stuff like this. It was so thoughtful.

And here are some shots of my ever expanding belly. 34 weeks along (I am now almost 36, I'll have to post a new picture this week sometime).Megan made a really great video of Elliot that I am going to post tonight too. He is such a wierdo.

I'm just going to say things you hear everyday:
"Dang girl, can you even walk?"
"I can't believe how big your belly is!"
Love the video. I should take some videos of the girls.
I still can't believe you're going to have a baby soon. I would pay to be in that delivery room.

I just had to comment on how cute your shower was, and how excited I am for you. I brought you back a baby present from Japan, so I need your address, even though it's gender-specific, so I can't send it to you until the baby is born.

I love that "Rockband" is set up in the background, classic.

Showers are great huh....ackward but great! Such a cute cake! So what is your hunch on the gender...I want your guess before the baby arrives, because instinct is often right! Your belly is super cute. I can't believe our babies are coming so soon...We really need to talk!

Vintage Pizza!! I'm so sad I missed it (not the pizza, but your shower!). Good luck! I'm so excited for you!!

You are so stinking cute. What a fun shower..well done mother and sister. That cake is adorable. Now I just have to be patient for your it to become a gender specific being. I really can't wait.
