Shower pics anyone?

So I don't yet have all of the pics. My SIL has some in her camera that I forgot to get from her before she left. I am gonna either have to get them over the inter-web or wait until she comes back down from Seattle, presumably after bebez... So here are a few for you to check out!

My loverly cake made by my wonderful friend Robin! Unfortunately there was a little mishap when it was getting loaded, so Robin whipped up an equally delish substitute:
Here's the sub with the sheet cakes. They were yummy. Yes, I totally cheated on my GD diet, but I couldn't help it! The yellow cake had a yummy custardy filling that was just divine...
One of the little cakes. Since the theme was Alice in Wonderland she piped "eat me on each one :) And yes, you grew when you ate one, but not the way Alice did. haha!
One of the centerpieces which is now on my mantle. I loved all of the heart playing cards and the glittery hearts to represent the Red Queen!
Me and my good friend Eileen!
Eileen and I again chattin'
Presents! That's my niece in the background...
These are from said niece.. The blue says "Rock Star" and the pink says "Rebel" :)
This was just one of the many things my sister gave me. She knitted some beautiful AND super cool goodies for the babies! And she decorated onesies with tattoo patches and studded skulls and sparrows... I will probably use some of the pieces for the babies' going home outfits :)
A vintage swing coat for my baby girl! Gotta love that! From my bro and SIL, they also gave me more vintage stuff and a few handmade cool things too :)
One of the games. This one was a baby food game :) Rachelle, Becca, and Robin (L to R)
This was a swaddling game. They had to swaddle "The Duchess's' pig/baby" :) L to R - Shelby, Becca, Maddy, Rachelle, Jen
Relaxing after the shower with Gracie (my baby sister)
*Belleh*... and tired...
Ahhh, my chair!
There were about 20 or so people there :) all on my SIL's camera I am sure. All in all I was blessed with some great gifts and great time with my friends :) Got lots of gift cards, mostly from Babies-r-Us and a really great one for a spa in Portland that specializes in pre/post-natal treatments which I will take advantage of right after the babies are born. They even come to your hospital :) Got lots of books - Where the Wild Things Are (plus the big monsters to go with the book), Curious George, Alice in Wonderland, plus a ton more. One of them made me cry when I read it at home - "Love You Forever". OMG. If you haven't read it, make sure you have tissues when you do...
Other things included lots and lots of clothes, diapers, bath stuff for me, bath stuff for the babies, bouncers, a mommy clip, and plenty more. I was spoiled like you wouldn't believe! Josh got all into the daddy mode and put crib #1 together when we got home. I was procrastinating on that. So we just have a couple more things to get and we will be ready.

looking at your pics again...you are carrying the babies just like i carried lola...seriously, your body profile could be mine at 9 months with her (boobs and all)...of course, you still have a few more weeks...haha but it's just cool to see the family similarities...:) i carried xi differently. even though she was bigger, she stayed against my back so i didn't look as far along as i really was throughout the pregnancy.

i'm getting all teary eyed just looking at how gorgeous you are...you are amazing mama! i can't tell you how happy it makes me that you are going through all this...the most magical time of your life, i swear. i always felt like i was surrounded by pixie dust because it just was all so amazing to me that my body was growing a whole human being..and you are doing that times 2! wonder woman you are! *smooch* i wish i was there to do a belly cast with you...you HAVE to do one...and then paint it all wild and cool. :) your masterpiece!

love you...

What fun you must have had! And OMG- you look fabulous- you need to include your head in your belly shots more often! I'm slightly jealous that you got so many gift cards- we didn't get that many. Now you can have a shopping spree (online, darn bed rest) and get more essentials! You are almost done!
