The Office ROCKS

Nooooo, I am not talking about the one in Scranton, PA!!!
I am talking about JC's dental office! The ladies there hosted a "welcome home Emma" shower last night, and it was so wonderful!

Everything was in pink and green, and the dinner was so yummy! After working a full day, everyone was sweet enough to stay and shower us with gifts and dinner! JC's first assistant and her family all came as well to help us celebrate!

Of course, just yesterday morning I f*d exed my NEW camera (that won't turn on) back to Connecticut, and my old camera decided it was time for the flash to stop working AGAIN! I desperately wanted to capture the details of the night, but I only got about 6 decent photos. I borrowed a camera from one of the ladies, and I am waiting to get those downloaded as well.
Emma looked soooooo adorable! I dressed her in one of the G*p St. Petersburg Collection dresses and leggings and a HUGE red bow in her hair (which she kept on amazingly enough)! I tried so hard to take a photo of her before we left, and I even got my mom to take one of me holding her. Of course the flash wasn't working too well so here it is in black and white...

And once we arrived, I just started snapping away in hopes that a few would come through clearly...

My favorite detail of the shower was the pink and green was sooo cute, and it tasted pretty darn good too! Emma had her first piece of cake. She sat so still while one of the ladies fed her...she kept opening her mouth like a little baby bird and licking her lips in between bites. I wish I had that on video - it was so cute!!!!

After dinner, JC opened many many many wonderful gifts! Emma got so many new clothes and toys! It was better than Christmas! She really had a good time pulling the tissue out of the gift bags and then looking down in them!

Everyone was so generous, and we appreciate them so much! It was a great night!

I just started following your blog. This is one of the most beautiful stories! I was sitting here with tears in my eyes! Your family (of 5!) is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to read more! said...

I love that dress. And the cake and food look wonderful. What a nice thing for them to do.
I wondered how Emma liked American food? Guess she loves cake.

I noticed the cake right off! It is too pretty to eat...guess y'all didn't think so ☺ I'm glad it was so good. Emma is getting cuter by the day. She's a lucky little girl and looks to be settling in nicely.

Showers are so fun!

Where in the heck did you get that outfit... I love it!

What a gorgeous cake and nice spread! Looks like Emma is settling in.
Good luck with your camera - I know Maria had to ship hers off to be fixed a couple of years ago, too.
How about them Heels?!
