A Pea in a Pod...

... A Bundle of Joy, McKinli Fennell is having a BOY!


So for those of you who don't know, or haven't heard yet, my little sister McKinli is having a little pea pod and she is less than a month away from having her little boy, Tytan. Last Saturday, April 18, I threw my sister a baby shower and it was such a fun day for her.









We invited a bunch of her friends from school, her co-workers, all of our extended family from the Taylor and Fennell sides, and family members from the father of her baby. For those of you who came and supported my little sister at the shower, I wanted to thank you all personally for coming to the shower and showing you support. It means more to McKinli and our family than you will ever know. Support is the one thing my sister needs from people more than anything else right now. McKinli is a very strong-willed girl and I know that the trials and rough days ahead will make her stronger and better because of the good choices she is now making - especially the decision to keep her baby.




Anyhow - the shower turned out really well. There were people constantly coming in and out of my mom's house (where the party was happenin') and McKinli had a grin from ear to ear as friends and family gathered to show their love and support.



My mom helped out tremedously with party favors, food, and a fun house! She is such a great party planner and helped to make it a memorable day for Kinli....



There was tons and tons of good food, and my mom created the coolest looking baby basinett out of a watermelon and an assortment of fruit. She also created sugar cookies as party favors that were decorated in the shape of a onesie that all of the guests were able to take as their dessert.


I am in the process of creating my website and blog for the photography business I have recently been working hard at... so once that is up and running I will let all of you know so that you can see the fun pictures I took of McKinli for her maternity photo shoot out at Antelope Island on the beach. The pictures turned out great and I will give you a little sneak peek at some of the pix... just because I'm feeling generous today... haha! =)
BUT PLEASE, SINCE I AM LETTING YOU IN ON SOME OF THE PHOTO SHOOT PIX, PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT OF YOUR HONEST OPINION OF WHAT YOU THINK OF THESE... I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR FEEDBACK! Thanks everyone!
