Baby Shower in Ohio!

I went to Ohio this past week. Our families threw a baby shower for us. Paxton's room is being done in owls, so it has a real earthy feel. I thought the same should carry over to the baby shower.  A handmade baby shower is what I had. It turned out absolutely fabulous! I could not have asked for a better shower...except maybe some sun :-) Since I flew to Ohio transportation was an issue. What better idea than having a gift card shower? It was awesome! The love and support from family and friends was incredible! We couldn't be more blessed! Check out these pictures of the shower!

 Granny fluffing pom-poms. She did such a good job!
 Cakes mom made. Love the color!
 The set up!
Gift table. Josh's mom found the banner and it had zebras on it. With a little work, we put some owls on it. 
 Table center pieces. I'm not artsy at all and I painted those owls.  Clearly not my sister's work. Don't look too close...there were Valentine's day sayings on their little bellies.
 Owls on the walk way.  Taylor painted these. Can you see how much better they are?
Loved using mom's cricut for this! 
 The guest book. Taylor painted the tree and everyone signed in by making a leaf out of a finger print.
The table all set up with food! Yummy!! 
 The chandelier mom worked so hard on! 
 How cute are those veggie cups?
 Owl cupcakes made by Amanda and Victoria. They were so good!
 Owl pops mom and I made. These were almost the death of us. The lady on youtube made them look so much easier! But hey, they were still good. I got to eat a lot of mistakes :)
Four generations!!  My mom, Taylor, me and Paxton, and my granny.
 The cake had a surprise of my granny's strawberry rhubarb jelly. Everyone loved it!
 Tammy won the string game! That's what happens when she gives so many hugs....she knows just how big I am!

It was such a wonderful time! I was tired after it, but the day was perfect! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to put it together!
