I can't even begin to tell you. My heart is so full writing this post.

My eyes started welling-up with tears just as I sat here, simply thinking about putting this story of these precious miracles into words. 

1 year and two months ago...TODAY... Nicole and Jason welcomed their angels from heaven into this world.

Read on for their amazing story and read about our attempt to honor momma the best we knew how, at her baby shower celebration...

Planning a baby shower can be such an incredible opportunity.

Throwing a party for a friend or a loved one means you have the rare honor of blessing the heart of a momma-to-be and celebrating an unborn life!

One of my dearest friends in my entire life had not one, but two precious baby boys and I had said honor of throwing them an elephant themed celebration of life.

She and her husband had been through an incredible amount of obstacles (bed rest, born at 26 weeks, countless trips to several hospitals, a tracheostomy), so more than ever, I wanted to be sure it was memorable and made momma feel like she was one of the most special people in the world, because to me, she is...

From the invites, down to the toothpicks...everything you see here is hand-crafted and made with love.

Game 1:

Game two: Everyone brought a onsie that represented them in some way. Every gift opened, the momma had to guess who brought the onsie that corresponded with the name on the gift she was opening. This was really fun.

Take home favors were twin cupcakes and a magnet was attached for each guest to put on their fridge to remember to pray for the sweet babies and their family.
