Can you spell s-u-r-p-r-i-s-e?

Wow. I'm still in shock.

I just finished folding onesies and little pink outfits, even though the party ended around 3pm.

If you've never met my mom, then you've never met the best organizer on this continent. Sadly, I did not inherit much of her talent with hosting big dinners and family parties. For her, it is not only a second nature that comes naturally - it is a lifestyle.

Anyways, what happens when an elite hostess finds out her only daughter is pregnant? hmmm... I should have seen it coming...

A big biiiiiiiiig baby shower.

We had guests that flew in from Korea, Alberta and Sept-Iles, just for the occasion.

My mom's sisters and mother are just as excited about organizing a baby shower as my mom was so they all helped a lot. I had no idea this was happening and this morning, there was 33 people in my house only 4 of which lived within 30 minutes of driving from our place.

My dad, who was in Korea all week, managed to pull together a spectacular slideshow of baby pictures from DF and me.

We were completely "showered" with gifts that will be much appreciated when little Jade shows up. I don't think we'll be running out of burping cloths or facecloths anytime soon!

Come to think of it there's no much we'll need after this.  We're already on our way to receiving a stroller from my brother, we got money for the baby monitor and have a high chair promised to us from a neighbour... We're only missing a car seat and...

DIAPERS. Lol. I can't believe in the huge pile of gifts we got today there was not 1 diaper to be seen. I thought that was usually the "popular" gift at baby showers. But apparently, everyone also thought so and decided to be more original lol.

I can't wait to receive some of the pictures that were taken today...  My next baby belly picture is somewhere in there!  :) I promise to post it as soon as I receive them!

Here's a picture of DF and me opening presents...

Sounds like you had a lot of fun! Bummer you didn't receive any diapers, but there's still plenty of time to get some!

Haha Thanks Megan. What I received was wayyy cooler than diapers!

I was really not disappointed, just a little surprised considering the huge pile of presents. As you said... We still have plenty of time to buy them! :)
