Couples Shower - Feb. 7, 2009

Saturday night was Brian and I's first shower! It was a Couples Shower hosted by Brian's Aunts and Uncles - Jim & Laurie Barnett and Kam & Pam Miller - and was held at Jim & Laurie's house in Heath. It started at 5pm and ended at 7pm and we had a wonderful time! I was so excited to use my wedding book for all the guests to sign in too!

There was so many good foods and dessert - there was so much yummy fruit, I had to take some home with me! Brian's family got it all set up and the layout of the food was so nice! A lot of our friends and family came and it was so much fun finally introducing Brian's family to my family and friends.

We played a game where everybody started out with one closepin on your shirt and everytime you said "wedding" somebody could steal your closepin and put it on their shirt - whoever had the most closepins at the end of the night wins...the funniest part is when Jim was giving welcoming everybody and when he said "wedding" everybody attacked him to get his closepin. His face was priceless seeing all of those people come at him at once. Hilarious! Everybody kept waiting for Kam to say it during the prayer but he didn't! Congrats to my sister-in-law, Kate, for winning the closepin game!

On our way home from the shower all Brian and I kept saying was how wonderfully blessed we are to have such great family and friends. They showered us with gifts and we are so grateful!
