Nina's First Shower!!!

Nine years ago a girl from Germany came to live with my family for the school year.  We fell in love with her quickly and she fit right in with the Caraway's.  Anyways, we kept in touch after she went back to Germany and she even came to see us almost every year.  While living in the MC, she met a boy and continued to date him even after she left the U.S. Long story short, they got married and moved back home.  They married quickly at the courthouse so she could go ahead and stay in the States. But they planned a wedding and we just got to bless her with a shower! The best part is that this was her actual FIRST shower.  I don't mean for HER WEDDING, I mean EVER.  She had never been to a bridal shower because they don't have them in Germany.  It was a wonderful day and I only put a few of all the pics we took. 

ok...props to "Friend of the Year" for showing and helping me make her delicious truffles for the shower.  They were soo yummy and cute (even if they weren't Rach standards...she makes them way cuter)!  Rach, you are the best!  Thanks for your help!
I love this platter...I use it all the time!  Wedding gifts are the best!
Johnah had this cute idea to wrap our gifts in these bags and make a centerpiece out of them for the gift table.  This was before everyone came....the table was later loaded down and presents surrounding the table on the floor.  She got a lot of fun things!
We all made two desserts...this was my second.  I find it pretty funny that the girl who doesn't really like chocolate brought TWO Chocolate desserts.  Johnah made these really cute mint choc. brownies and April made her famous Red Velvet cupcakes and cream cheese icing...they are way too good.  Sondra, Nina's MIL made an amazing fruit salad that I seriously could not stop eating.  Anyways, everything turned out just perfect.
