Continued Showers

Last Saturday, I traveled north to attend another shower for Shylah, at the home of her mother's sister. It was fun to see and visit with Shylah's extended family, many of whom I had only met at their wedding.

The house was decorated top to bottom following an adorable onesie theme.

And when I say top to bottom, I mean top to bottom! Onesies everywhere! So cute.
A special item at the shower, filled with gifts for Baby Cayden, was a cradle that was made for Shylah's brother DJ, who died when he was a baby. It was made by Shylah's grandpa, and will be a cozy place for Cayden to snooze as a newborn. (When he's not changing clothes, that is. Lots of clothes for this little one!)
Nearby was a clever diaper cake following (as did everything at the shower) the blue and green color scheme of Cayden's nursery.
Each guest signed a wooden 'C' as a keepsake for his room.
We enjoyed a yummy buffet lunch of beef, chicken, fruit, salad, and even bow tie pasta salad and bow tie pasta crunchies to further carry through the theme. And aren't the place settings adorable?
Bow tie molded chocolate and rock candy in a jar of green candy made the tables fun and festive.
Shylah's friends Jessica and Kylee came from up north to share the fun.
Shylah with her brother Joe's girlfriend, Kelly, and her brother Austin's wife, Avery.
Mommy-to-be with the baby's grandmas...
and (some of) his great-grandmas. What a lucky and blessed baby!
Shylah's Aunt Mary who (along with Aunt Barb and Grandma) crochets the most beautiful blankets.
Daddy-to-be, David, arrived after the party had ended, to help load their many thoughtful and useful gifts into their two vehicles to take back to their home in Dayton. Just seven weeks until we will welcome little Cayden John to the world. So thankful for the prayers of family and friends, who will continue to shower this little one with love.
