Celebrating Katie and Mary Elliott

My little sister and her husband are expecting their first baby any day now! A few weeks ago, we had the joy of showering them with lots of love and baby stuff. It was the perfect morning celebrating my best friend and my soon-to-be niece, who is going to be more loved (and spoiled) than we ever knew was possible! 

 Whimsy cookies...the BEST sugar cookie you'll ever eat! 

One of my Etsy touches..."Wishes for Baby" cards and "Advice for the Mommy-to-Be." I loved this idea because it was very personal and was something Katie could look back on for years to come!

 Instead of a traditional "guest book," we had everyone sign the book "Guess How Much I Love You" for Katie to keep in Mary Elliott's nursery.

 Three generations!

 Doesn't she look phenomenal? She's gonna be a hot mama.

 Hostesses with the guest(s) of honor!

Y'all know me, and I have to be cheesy for a second--I am so proud of my sister. She has become one of the most incredible, loving, patient women I know. I am thankful for her friendship and for her support, and I know without a doubt she is going to be such a fantastic mother. Mary Elliott is a lucky little girl! I can't wait to see this journey unfold.

Hurry up, Mary Elliott! We are ready to meet you.
 (Your aunt is going to spoil you and give you everything you could ever want!)
