Anna's Little Pumpkin

Among other things this weekend, I was able to co-host a baby shower for my good friend Anna.  I met Anna when I moved into my ward about a year and a half ago.  She has been nothing but fun and friendly from the get go!  Anna is due Jan. 3rd so it has been fun to talk and compare pregnancy stories with each other and have a buddy to go through all of this with! 

We decided to throw her a "little pumpkin" shower since it is fall now.  We had a fun time preparing delicious food like Autumn soup, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin chocolate chip bread, wassail, and gingerbread cookies cut into pumpkins and dipped in chocolate!  I think its safe to say we feasted well!  Here are some photos from the event! 
Here are all of the trimmings!
A lot of Anna's friends were able to be there! We had a good time visiting, sharing pregnancy stories, and making her some adorable hand appliqued onesies! 

Shauna, the guest of honor and her "pumpkin", and Mackenzie
Can't wait to meet your little one Anna!  Lets keep our fingers crossed that BOTH these little girls come in December for the tax break :)
