"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him. In love He predestined us to adoption as sons through Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:3-6

Showering Elliana

On Saturday, August 24, some of my dear friends threw Elliana a shower.  It was held at Treva's house and was such a special time.  Everything was perfect and there were such special touches on every detail.  We felt so loved and I am so blessed to have these sisters in my life.

First we ate....

Food and Drinks! Adorable cupcakes made by Nancy Bradt

 Then we played a game....

A fun game I've never seen before.  Kelly came up with the idea from a game that was played at her shower, but she put a twist on it.  The first Sunday we were at church with Elliana, Brent had to get up and take Raelynn potty.  I was already standing up with Elliana in the back and he handed Declan off to me.  Kelly looks over and laughs because I'm standing there with Elliana in the ergo, Declan on my hip, and let's not forget the baby in the belly!
So her idea was that the participants had to have a baby in a carrier, a baby on their hip, and a baby around their leg while hanging laundry on the line.  It was a race for the ladies who played.  It was pretty funny! I said they should have had to stuff a pillow in their belly too:)  And midway through we should have spilled milk on them--"uh oh, baby spit up"  It was fun!!




Jaime trying to hang laundry through the 'wind storm'.  And it was pretty funny because her daughter, Avrie was at the shower and had spilled her clothespin basket while she was competing.  So she got a very real life experience while playing!

Then Chiara Rusev gave a beautiful devotion on the topic of adoption and how God places us in families. 

Then we were showered with diapers!  Such a blessing!!
