Some Shower Pics

I had an awesome shower on Saturday. Here are just a few pictures to share with you. Blogger is acting up and will not let me arrange them in order. We had an awesome time celebrating Spencer and honoring Alyssa-Joy and Evan.
What touched me the most was that my babies were included in the shower. There were pinwheels with their names on them, wind chimes (they would not stop ringing or blowing and it was not even windy!). I am so glad I was "forced" to have a shower. We were shown how truly loved and blessed we are.

Awaiting my expected end,


  1. You look fabulous!! What a beautiful celebration of all of your babies and their lives. That's such a gift when you have people in your life that remember to honor all of your babies. I hope to have that someday in my life too. ((hugs))

  2. What a pretty shower! Was that a lake I saw in the background?? Kudos the the shower planners! It looked awesome.
    What a great idea to be able to honor your heavenly babies! Its so hard to find ways to celebrate them and its great that yall were able to!

  3. Where did you have the shower at? What park? Beautiful pictures!

  4. So lovely!!! I know what you mean about being so touched that people honor your other babies too. We didnt have showers for Nicholas & Sophia or Alexander (we were too early when they were born- heck, even Bobby and Maya were here for their shower, LOL!). But our cake for B&Ms shower had these three little people at the bottom: boy girl boy and my MIL made an announcement explaining who they represented and then, to really make me cry, told everyone that the stars at the top represented the babies we had lost in miscarriage. It was amazing to have them all "there" at that shower, and to acknowledge us as parents to all of them.

  5. I'm so glad you had a nice shower! You & Larry are loved, Marie! That is beautiful how all three of your babies were included. xoxo

  6. Saw these on Facebook. I love the kids cakes. How special that all your babies were included in this shower of blessings on you, Larry and little Spencer.

    You look great!

  7. I absolutely love that your two angels were honored as well! What a wonderful time! You two look so happy! :)

  8. MMMM cake... yummm
    Congratulations on making it so very far and thank you for giving me hope.

  9. Looks as though you had a blast at your shower!!! Love the pictures....

  10. Marie, this is absolutely beautiful! I am so excited to hear that Alyssa Joy and Evan were honored. :)
