Baby Shower at Matt's Work

Beautiful (and yummy!) cake by Esther.
As soon as we found out we had been matched with a boy, Matt's coworkers got busy and planned a surprise shower for him.  I was so proud to keep such a wonderful secret for a few days and was thrilled to be invited. (There are no pictures of me there, but I promise I was...) :)

Today at lunch, I snuck into the Petsmart store where he works and managed to sneak into the break room unseen.  My accomplishment was small compared to the girls who brought in presents, cakes, pizzas and party decorations--all while sneaking past Matt at the desk.  I learned that Matt can be pretty clueless. :)

On the clinic's lunch break, his manager said she needed to go over some performance stats with him in the break room.  When he walked in, about 20 of his coworkers greeted him with a "SURPRISE! and CONGRATULATIONS!"  He was SHOCKED!!

 LOTS of goodies!!

They did such a good job putting together this surprise, and they SPOILED us with so many things!  Lots of adorable outfits, diapers, wipes, medicines, blankets, towels, washcloths, toys... some of everything!  They seriously got us way too much stuff. But we are grateful.

So thankful.  It is such a blessing to have so many wonderful people in our lives.  I also think it's a huge testament to what an awesome man Matt is that his coworkers did something so special for him.
