Whew! Well I am still recovering from baby shower pics will come later, but the big surprise was my sister after all!!

My dad walks in all of the sudden holding the hand of my 20-month old niece and says "Look who I found in the hallway." It took me a second to realize it was Rachael and then I saw my sister and just about burst into tears! I was absolutely shocked and couldn't believe all of my family and some of my friends were able to keep this secret for so long. It was perfect! My sister left her two older boys with a friend in Texas and flew to Washington Friday and she leaves tomorrow morning. I'm so happy they were able to have her here, especially since I have not seen her since last August. The whole family plans to come up in June after the baby is born and after her husband returns from Iraq. I can't till they will all be here.

Besides that great surprise, we got lots more gifts and feel so lucky that we have so many supportive friends and family. My mom planned for everyone to bring any size diapers to the shower, so we have lots of diapers to start off with. We also have sooooo much clothing. Now we have to make a list of what we still really need since Lila will be here very soon. It's all becoming very real.

So that's the short version of yesterday's event. As soon as I get pictures from my sister and her best friend who were being my "paparazzi" - I will post a few. My DH was a little distracted playing with all the little babies who were there and forgot to take pictures on our camera. LOL! What a fabulous day!
