Emily's Utah Bridal Shower

 On the 5th of February we had a bridal shower for Emily.  It was at Valerie's house and Andrea, Val and I put it on.  We invited some very good friends and tried to stick to her color theme of hot pink and lime green.  I think it turned out especially nice.  Everyone who came was so, so, nice.  
               We had several really yummy salads and hummus with pita chips.  For dessert we had chocolate velvet cake, cream puffs, chocolate strawberries and a delicious caramel puff mix.
 I know Emily was so happy with her party and so happy about all the lovely gifts she received.
 Here is our dear friend Paulette.  I took started taking care of her adorable girls when they were just little.  Sara was 5 and Amie was 3.  They became such good friends with Andrea and Emily.  In fact Sara and Andrea have been BFF's since then.  I love Sara and Amie.
 Here are Dani and Melanie with her cute little baby Broderick.  Melanie and her family have been our dearest friends since before she was born.  In fact it is her Dad who baptized us years ago.  
 Emily and our granddaughter Danielle.  Then there is Chris who has been a family friend forever too.  In fact, I was her very first babysitter when she was only 2 days old and her family went to a wedding.  Jordyn is playing with little Tate our great-granddaughter.
 For one of the games I had a cute jar filled with jelly bellies.  Each guest was to count the jelly beans and the closet to the actual count was the winner.  Just as Jordyn picked up the jar by the lid I said, "Don't hold the jar  by the lid, it will fall."  No sooner had I said it, the jar fell.  Only some jelly beans fell out.  Then it happened a 2nd time and we had jelly beans all over Val's floor.  As luck would have it, Jordyn won the game guessing only a few numbers short of the 556 that were in the jar.  We observed the 10 second rule and ate the jelly beans anyway.
 Here are Mackenzie, Jen and Val.
 Our soon to be daughter JaNee and Andrea with Paulette in the background.  Paulette is certifying to be a yoga instructor.  I think that is awesome.

 A good time was had by all.  We played some games, ate, talked, laughed and Em got lots of wonderful gifts.  Everyone was sooooo generous.
