Bracken Baby Shower

Tuesday night my little sister Jacki Bracken, the solo blonde in the family, had her Baby Shower at my parent's house. It was so great to have everyone back at home for the week to help Jacki celebrate such an exciting time in her life.

Baby Bracken was spoiled rotten with lots of toys, blankets, and even his first BYU onesie. My Mom was an incredible hostess and made all the red velvet cupcakes, put together adorable party favors, and even made a giant cake out of diapers. When my dad saw it sitting on the table the first words out of his mouth were "Wow! That cake's gonna taste like crap!" I love my Dad!

After all the presents were opened and the guests went home, Jacki's cute girlfriends from High School stuck around and had a few good laughs. It was all around a fun evening and Jacki is hopefully a little more prepared for Baby Bracken to be here in 10 short weeks. I can hardly wait!

Sorry I missed the shower! I think my check probably got there too late! Oh, well. I hope you can get her something with it, anyway. Wish I could have been there. It looks like everybody had a great time!
