avery's sprinkle

i realize that i am just now getting around to blogging about an event that happened
over a month ago but i'm pretty sure i've got a good excuse :)

my mom + two cute sisters threw me + avery a little "sprinkle" to get us more prepared for her arrival. i always feel like i need to do something to contribute, so i offered to make the invites. my mom came up with the clever wording; i just designed them.
i thought they turned out pretty cute:

my mom had tons of delicious treats {i wish i would have taken pictures of the spread!} but they involved brownie bites from costco, pineapple, strawberries, cantaloupe, etc...all things that sound and taste wonderful to a very pregnant girl!

{i love you marianne!!}

{the twins + max had a party with all of the wrappings}

{max was also very happy to see his old "roomie" ellie! isn't she such a cutie?!?}

i was so happy to see all of you that were able to come + avery definitely came away with a small fortune of adorable little girl items. thank you!!

...little did we know she would arrive just one week later!!!

p.s. some of my sweet friends in nephi also threw me a TOTAL surprise shower for avery, but i don't have any pictures...natasha, wanna help a friend out?? :)
p.p.s. i'm trying to play "blog catch-up" today, so stay tuned for {hopefully} many more posts!
