Amazing Outpouring of Love

We had our Abilene Shower on Sunday. W-O-W! I was overwhelmed with all the women who came, and we are so blessed to be surrounded with such wonderful families. I don't think we will have to buy ANYTHING for our boys for the first year! I wish there were more words that meant deeper levels of "Thank You" because the general thank you just does NOT do justice. I feel much more prepared to welcome two boys into the world. Here are some pics of the shower:

Zach even surprised everyone and made an appearance at the shower! Dressed in his baby blue suit, of course! Kate & Summer did a great job of decorating for the shower and making it look adorable.

We loaded up all the stuff we received into 4 vehicles and unloaded everything into our house. Then on Monday night, Ann & Summer came over to help me organize everything. It took about 4 hours, but it feels so good to have everything out of gift bags and into organized baskets. Here are some pics of the piles!

Here are the blankets and sheets:

Toys & Stuffed Animals:


Last but not least, the CLOTHES! (Organized from infant to toddler, left to right!)

If any of you need boys clothing...just let me know! I have a few extras. haha

Well, today I am officially 29 weeks pregnant!

My ribs are beginning to hurt, but it's nothing too bad. The hardest part right now is the lack of sleep I am getting. I think it is hormone related. I can get very comfortable in bed, and I don't have a lot of things going on in my mind...but it just takes me about an hour and a half to fall asleep. Then I wake up to every little sound in the house. Not to mention my bladder waking me up about 3 times a night. Oh well...it's all preparing me for what's to come! I can't WAIT!

Wow!!! Looks like you are definately set for your precious little boys! So fun :) I'm so excited about starting to get things like that...I bet it makes it so much more real. Anyway, I looked at your maternity photos the other day and it's so hard to choose a favorite. They are all great! I really love the one of you and Zach where you are laying down looking up at him, so sweet. Looking good Kara, and you really don't have too much longer!

Your shower was so much fun! It was great to see so many people gathered together to celebrate the lives of these two little boys. I can't wait to meet them!

Love the picture of you and Zach standing back to back and looking around at each other.

Kara, You look awesome! I can't believe how much the boys are growing, growing. So glad you have all you need.
