Baby Shower Surprise!

My sister had a baby!!!!! First sibling of mine to finally take the plunge:) It is so exciting and fun for me. Its usually me laid up in bed in pain:) Hahaha. Now its her!! ;) Sorry, Tara, you know I'm kidding. Kind of ;) Fun to be the one to get to be the aunt!!! He is a handsome bundle of joy, but I'll give him his own post next:) But oh man is he sweet! She and Arthur done goodE. This post is actually about her baby shower. I'm just a little behind on blogging:) So, the girls and I decided to make a surprise girls' trip down to Corpus to attend Tara's baby shower for her new little guy joining the family soon, Crew. She was shocked! I'm so glad we were able to make the trip and truly surprise her. I hope she knows we love her a TON and thats why we couldn't miss it! Havin a baby is kinda a big deal, don't I know it :) And a big thank you to Joey for taking off work yet again for me to go to Corpus. He rocks. So back to the shower, the girls each picked gifts for Crew and I even tried my hand at sewing and made her some pretty darn cute burp cloths(well I sewed fabric on them to make them cute:) and got her a few other items as well. She had a great turnout and received lots of awesome things. The cake and decor for the shower was adorable. Her best friend, Nicole, and my mom did a wonderful job. Here are pics from our fun time down there partying it up for baby Crew!

Isn't this friggin cute?

The nursery is elephant themed so the shower was perfectly decorated!

Typical Tara :) Bless her. She always makes me laugh.

Typical Aubrey. Bless her. She always makes me cry. jk ;)

Cali helped string this little banner

The Candy Game! Aubrey and Ella helped my mom with making the board. I loved that my girls got to be part of helping with lots for the shower. They felt muy especial.

Yea for Shelby! I love her look of joy as she reaches for her candybar:) And I love big cousin, Ella's face too. Happy for her cuz.

Fondueing it up yall. We Smithies like to dippies.

Gift opening. And here are my burp cloths! Hard to see them but I was happy with how they turned out. Much harder than I thought they would be to make! I'm so not a sewer! But I'm trying to learn. Man, its tedious. And this is nothing compared to people that sew more involved things like clothes and stuff. Don't know how they do it... so Tara, you better LOVE these things :) Don't let Crew actually spit up on them. Frame them. Treasure them. :) Kidding of course. Hope he pukes lots on them and they get used! :)

Tara and her bestie, Nicole standing behind that super cute diaper cake Nicole made. I love Nicole. She is just a genuinely nice and funny gal! Glad Tara found her years ago and paid her to be her friend. 

Tara and I acting like, well, us. 

Me and one of my best friends :)

A sleepy not-feeling-so-great Cali at the end of the day. Poor girl. She did okay half the day and then tanked at the end. 

And I'll leave you with one last gem of a picture. My Mom waving goodbye. I think that was one of the best photo bombs ever. She looks just super happy to be sayin howdy!!
