This morning, we had a baby shower for Elena, CDA's Volunteer Coordinator. She is due in January with twin girls, and we are so excited for her! Jennifer was a great hostess. We had lots of yummy food, played some fun games, and just enjoyed each other's company all while celebrating Elena!
Hope you enjoy these pictures of the festivities :)

More balloons on the front door!
Danyelle and I attempted to make this banner/arch work, and I think we put in a good effort… even if it did look awful!
Fruit with yogurt dip, blueberry muffins, cookies, sandwiches, veggies and dip… all so yummy!

Rachel and Elena are just a couple weeks apart, but Elena is having two babies and Rachel is having one.
Our first game! Everyone had to stick their hand in the diaper bag and without looking, guess an item that was inside.
Twin #1's team went first
What could it be?!
Brianna searched for something "hard to guess"… She finally pulled out a pacific with the plastic cover on it and guessed correctly!
Now it's Clara's turn!
The Name Game… Everyone had to make up first and middle names for the twins using the letters in Elena and her husband's full names. Some of the combinations were hilarious!
Danyelle giving out prizes for Elena's favorite names and the silliest names.
Time to open presents!
Heather gave her this cute bath towel and some other fun bath items.

Looks like it's something good!
Baby shampoo and wipes are definitely necessities!
What could it be?!
A bit of an emotional moment!

I thought the packaging on this was really cute :)
These cute outfits were from Alice.
Danyelle and I found these coordinating dresses for the girls and thought they were too cute!
Sarah gave Elena all sorts of tiny baby clothes! It was all wrapped up in this pretty knit blanket.
The sweaters looked like doll clothes!

They also gave her these adorable outfits…
She looks pleased with whatever it is that's inside!
