and i actually did a little crafting for the shower...and i think it turned out pretty cute (not quite as cute as if stacie or aimee or steph were crafting it, but hey, it's a start!). i got part of the idea off another blog so mom and dad built the base and i made the letters...you'll probably be seeing this again (with pictures instead of letters) at tman's first birthday (that was actually where the idea originated-for a 1st birthday). and then tanner so generously shared some of his toys and books to help add to the decorations.
and tamara added to the texas goodie basket with a GREAT idea...she got some dirt from rachel's parents' yard...so riley can be born on texas soil! it was so cute!
here's a pic of all the hostesses with rachel and her mom.
and the three of us (we missed you allison!!!)
