Our baby boy's shower

The highlight of our trip to Utah was definitely our baby shower. All of our family and friends in attendance made it feel so special. Matt and I are still amazed by -- and so grateful for -- everyone's kindness, generosity, and support.
We felt so loved.
And seriously, it was such an amazing shower. My family went above and beyond! The decorations were beautiful, the food was delicious, and the whole party was just plain fun.
There was a classic "shower" theme -- an umbrella on the invitation, clouds and raindrops above the food table, etc.
The food:

Before the shower:
During the party:
After the festivities:
My mom and sisters; Liz and Isaac; Alicia and Brody.
My sweet grandma.
The Northern Graf ladies!
To help transition while people were finishing eating, Heidi and Christian made a little questionnaire movie of me and Matt. If you have a few minutes to kill, feel free to check out what we had to say about our little guy and this pregnancy. A few disclaimers: 1) They interviewed us on separate days so no, we don't actually wear matching outfits. 2) My siblings make me laugh, so just keep that in mind, yeah? 3) Yes, I do talk louder and longer than Matt. Or so I'm told. 4) If you'd like a little peak at how random the workings of my brain can be, skip to 2:50. (Be sure to remember point #2, though! You should have seen Christian's face behind the camera. Oh man.) A historic icon, a rapper, an old movie and scriptures, all in one answer? Yep. Got that covered.

Thank you, again, to all who came! We feel so lucky to have you as a part of our lives and can't wait to make you a part of our baby boy's life, too.
