twin baby shower

My Sister and my Mom hosted a twin baby shower for me this weekend.  It was fabulous!

I decided that a new dress for this occasion couldn't possibly be deemed as frivolous and made a slight detour on Friday to Queen Mother Maternity.  I was all ready on Saturday morning and all set to go and pick up a bouquet of flowers for the hostesses at Mill Street (my all time favorite florist).  Little did I know that there was some festival going on and the entire street would be closed... so I had to park really far away and I spent the walk feeling way too guilty for walking that far (and almost turned back twice)... but it was worth it.

I arrived to a house full of excited woman (many on their second glass of wine).... I fully believe that a shower without booze should be illegal and that even though I may not be fit to drink, everyone else certainly is!

My Mom found these favours online... little egg soaps in a nest... so cute!

Love the edible arrangement!

The amount of gifts and people...  slightly overwhelming!  The twins are two lucky little babies!

Nearing the end of the gift unwrapping... with my Sister Steph (who happens to be the only person I know brave enough to wear orange, I love it!)

soo.... just how big is my tummy?  well according to my aunt it's 40.5 inches of greatness!

Funniest moment of the day.... when they opened the first cake box and discovered that this shower was really supposed to be for Andrew!

We thought that the second cake must be for me... but alas no.... apparently it was also Andrew's birthday.  I have to say he was quite confused when he arrived and everyone started singing Happy Birthday!

My lovely Mom and I... thank you Mommy (yes I still call her that) for all of your hard work!

and the Daddy-to-be!

I threw this pic in so you could get a close up of the new dress... apparently it does double duty and is also good for nursing... I will have to figure out the strange slits at a later date.
I had a great day and am so grateful for all of the hard work that my Mom and Sister put into making this day so special for the twins and I.  It was so nice to see so many great people.  These types of days are never long enough but it is so great that they take place.

I will share more details of all of the great gifts that the twins received sometime soon!

Happy Tuesday!
