Surprise Baby Shower!!!

My sister, family and friends have all been up to NO good! They went behind my back and planned a SURPRISE baby shower for little miss Mia Lynn. They had all been told that I didn't want another shower because we just had one when we were pregnant with Connor. I guess you could say I didn't want to make people feel obligated to buy gifts after they had gotten me tons of things while I was pregnant with Connor. I had just planned on using most of the things we had from Connor's shower (which was lots of blue) and just making sure we stick a bow in Mia's hair so people would know that it's just a little girl dressed in blue!!! I was completely surprised and a bit overwhelmed on Sunday!!!! All in all, it was a GREAT day and I'm so thankful to have such a great family and group of friends that came to the shower. Mia will NOT have to wear anything blue now and probably has an outfit for every hour of the day! :)
The goodie table!!! Notice the baskets of reeses and nutty bars!! My favorites :)
The delicious cake!
Sitting with the MASSIVE amount of presents!
One of the sweetest presents I received was from Chloe. She wrapped up her first baby doll because she no longer needed her. She wanted me to have it so I can give it to Mia. What a sweet, sweet girl!!! Thank you Chloe!
THANK YOU to all of you that were involved in keeping this a secret from me! You guys got me!!!
