*Cason's Baby Shower*

Let me start this post with a picture of my daughter smiling as opposed to crying like she did almost the whole time at Cason's shower. I figured she would love eating cake and helping open presents. Apparently what she really needed was to stay in bed for a few more hours. Thanks to everyone who tried to talk to her, brought her presents, or tolerated her moodiness on Saturday! I did think she looked super sweet.....I actually got her hair in a side-wards ponytail. Jeremy said he didn't really like that style very reminds him of a dumb blonde girl!

Look at the wonderful cake and table set-up!
So much yummy food!
* Cason Gage Broom*
My sweet sister drove all the way to the shower and could only stay a few minutes before she had to go to work. When you scroll down you'll see the awesome present she got me!!! She is sitting next to my sweet 90 year old grandmother who also came. My grandmother is most excited that my dad will actually have a boy in his family now, other than son-in-laws. (I just have two sisters...)
Kayla brought Cassidee a present. Here she is opening it with the help of Me-mommy and her fun friend Presley!
Sweet shades, Cass!
My present from Kayla:
It was soooo cute. It is a great basket tht was filled with lots of baby goodies hanging on a clothes line. She raided The Children's Place and Cason has tons of good stuff to wear now!

Burp clothes with his name on them!
Teeny-tiny boy clothes! I didn't know what to think since nothing was pink---thank goodness!

This shower was hosted by my sweet, sweet friends.
I love these girls and am so grateful for their generosity and for thinking of our family and giving us a shower. So here's a shout out to my girls.....
Andrea (love your dress, by the way!)
Kimberly---it was at her house. She is so great to do this with her own little newborn to take care of! And, Cassidee's good friend Presley (who I never got a good picture of her face...)
Shara and her awesome hat!
Kimberly! You gotta look good while you're doing dishes!
And I didn't get a picture of Angie. She had to run out before all the hat fun to get ready for her baby's first birthday party!
But, thank you girls for such a fun time!! I'm so glad that I have wonderful girl friends and that my daughter has great friends in each of your kids!
Cassidee's present from Kayla.....a new outfit (AWESOME!) and cool sunglasses!

This picture was taken 2 1/2 years ago at my baby shower for Cassidee. I was around the same pregnancy week (35) and took this picture with Jodi B. (pregnant, but I don't remember how far along...maybe 3 months or so), Rachel S. (pregnant, but didn't know it at the time and is sticking her tummy out like a retard!), and Lindsay S. (not pregnant until the end of that year). Anyway, it's funny to look at what all has changed in our lives in the past 2 1/2 years. I have Cassidee and Cason on the way. Jodi has Reagan and baby? on the way. Rachel has Roselyn and baby boy (hello, pick a name) on the way, and Lindsay has Braden.

Our picture from Saturday. Kendra (35 weeks), Rachel (28 weeks, I think), and Jodi (15 weeks)
Cassidee loved the present she got from my hostesses as well. They got her a My Little Pony and some Hot Wheel cars. I know, weird mix, but it fits her so well right now. She is my little "bow-wearing-tom-boy." She won't leave the house without making sure her hair is pretty and that she has a few cars in her purse! Last night she was even playing with a dinosaur and growling at Jeremy! Go figure! Anyway, thank you girls for thinking of her. She loves her presents!
And now I'll end the post with two pictures of my little girl (tom boy) tormenting a frog. Jeremy found it on the driveway and Cass thought it was the greatest thing. She showed us how she could hop like a frog......
.....and then she chased it into the bushes where she proceeded to throw sticks at it!
My little girl! :)

That is so funny that she threw sticks on the frog :) I bet that made Daddy proud.

Tell Cass that we have tons of cars over at our house...too many, actually! She'd be in heaven.

Not much longer until Baby Cason makes his debut!

I love the side ponytail! I have done that to Sage a few times for a trip down memory lane. Cason's cake was really cute, is it his cake if he didn't eat it?

Side-wards ponytail....just swingin up above my head :) Does that take you back to Nelson dorm, you sleeping in Kristin & Linn's room. Good times!

Can't wait to meet Cason. Should be in Dallas in October. We'll have to meet up & catch up!

Looks like you had such a fun shower--now you get to look forward to using all that boy stuff. Hope you're feeling good these days--you're almost there! Y'all take care!

Heidi said...

Congrats on all the fun boy stuff!!

Noe Family said...

Glad you enjoyed the shower! You got some amazing presents. Maybe you don't need Carson's hand me downs:-) And can I say something else....we should've all pitched in and got Jeremy a new hat!! Maybe I'll bring him one to the hospital when Cason is born. ha,ha!! Love you!!

Lindsay said...

Girl, sorry I had to miss your shower (I was hosting one that same day/time). I have your gift, need to either find a way to get it to you, or stuff it in the mail. Glad you got lots of good stuff.
