Baby Baby Baby Shower

Thanks to all the ladies who helped host. Missing a few in the picture but they were with us in spirit.
Poppin some Bubbley for the Boland Babies!

The table decorated with trees that had helpful notes that the guest could take home with them. Some said things like "Take a delicious dinner to the Bolands week of ??-??" or "Diaper delivery and Rockabye Boland Babies week of ??-??" (of course there were real dates instead of question marks). We also took the trees home to plant in our yard as the babies special trees to grow with them.

Yummy food!

Aunt Laney, Junebug and Aunt Spencer. Don't we coordinate nicely for not even planning to.

The babies got tons of wonderful gifts!

The Boland Babies met Baby Harper for the first time.

Look, a print of a mama and daddy bird with their three little baby birds.

My grandmother made a different quilt for each of the babies. The one in the picture is Baby C's (our boy ). They match our nursery perfectly. Honestly, the picture does no justice for how beautiful they are in person.

So cute!

Cousin Amy and Baby Asa. Good practice but I'm running out of lap space.

My best girls!!! These ladies will be a huge part of our babies lives. Look at how fat my ankles are, haha.

Please notice that Kim Gravlee is rubbing my feet! Matter of fact, both the Gravlee girls took some time to pamper me. This could very well be the best present I got all day.

Last Saturday, I had my baby shower in Spartanburg. It was nothing short of fantastic! We had the most delicious food including my favorites, strawberry pettifor cakes from Strossners and mini peanut butter pies. (The shower took place before I found out I had gestational diabetes so I got to eat all the goodies.......I'm drooling just thinking about it). The babies got tons of gifts and Ben and I are beginning to think we may actually able to do this whole triplets thing without going into massive debt. The hostesses (aka most wonderful women in the world) even pooled together to get the babies their cribs. It was a fabulous day filled with the ladies I love most.....what can i say, doesn't get any better than that.


  1. I am so glad you finally posted pictures..You know big Deb and I wanted nothing more to be there and meet all the other fabulous hosts! I am pretty sure my friend Kristin would have been really mad if I had missed her wedding though :)

    You look beautiful and I am soo happy you liked the cribs!!! Everything looks perfect just like Melody said it would!!! Love you, JWS

  2. Aww Luce, I'm so sad I couldn't be there! :( Worst work schedule ever... you look so cute!!

  3. I love the quilt! Can't wait to see the other two. So glad you got some good stuff! Take care of you!

  4. Aww yay!! I love the photos!! It was such a gorgeous shower. I am glad you all got so many of the "needed items!" Here is the website for Jack and Janie. My favorite place for boys clothes so far. And Erik likes them too because they are "more manly!" haha
