Connection Group Baby Shower

On Sunday, our connection group (a.k.a. Sunday school class!) took us to lunch at Jason's Deli and showered baby Owen with gifts.  Lynlee was so excited and took total control.  She unwrapped every gift at lightening speed!  Here are some of pictures from our lunch.  Thanks again to everyone.  We are so blessed to have such a wonderful support group!

Adam and Helga Coleman!

Cody and Shannon Davis! Sorry Shannon, but this is the only picture I got with Cody in it!

Ian and Lauren Hardaway, plus Helga too!  If you look closely you can see baby Hayden in Lauren's Moby wrap.  She is only a week (or two) old and doesn't Lauren look amazing!

Jill and Mark Robertson sitting by Mark and Abby Milbrodt!  Abby is 20 weeks pregnant and finds out Thursday what they are having.

Jason, Katie, and Zach Rowe!  BIG thanks to Katie because she organized everything!

Jon and Kristin Bodenstein! She is also expecting a baby boy in March.

Here's a big group pic.

Lindsey and Jon Richey sitting by Joni and Cody Crawford.  Joni is expected a baby boy in just a week or two.  

Jennifer and Josh Francis!  Big thanks to Jennifer for sacrificing her lunch to write down all our gifts.  We were both having a hard time keeping up with Lynlee!

Here's the princess herself!  She is attempting to "read" the card!  

Thanks again to everyone! It was a great lunch!  Sorry I don't have any pictures of the presents, but let me assure you that they were all super cute!


  1. Don't worry about it! He does that in every picture. He probably thought it was Katie's camera though so he will get a kick out of it being your's!! :) Ha!

  2. I was more than glad to help you! We had a lot of fun! Why are you not in a picture???

  3. Sarah, did I seriously not get a picture of you!? I thought I did!

    I'm glad you had a good time. We had a GREAT turnout!

  4. sarah! found your blog through alicia's! it was good to see you sure are a cute pregnant lady!

  5. Friends,

    I googled "group baby shower" and found your posting. Here's my question ... we've got 10 babies coming into our church this Spring. If you were putting together one big baby shower for all the babies and their moms and dads, how would you go about it in a way that didn't leave anyone feeling left out?

    It's just that to plan 10 different baby showers sounds like it will tax everyone involved in ways that aren't all that great. Thanks for letting me know your thoughts. Just so you know I'm not a kook, check out our website ... Godspeed.
