The boys lent their skills and created this masterpiece.
Other decorations included
a sweet treasure chest, filled with coins, gold beads, gems...and a Captain bottle.
A door covering that I used to cover a picture in our kitchen.
I asked the Moms to send baby pictures of Jodie and Zak and hung them in the kitchen for all to see.
Jodie loved the pictures of Zak...so she took a couple pictures of them for herself!
And a poster I created.
No big deal.
stole borrowed pictures off of Jodie's FB page and had them printed in 5X7, printed off the letters, and put together the best poster this super non-creative lady could do.
My awesome sister and brother in law did all the food for me. I have to admit, delegating that piece of the party was a HUGE relief. I just hate working with food.
It was DELICIOUS! All of
our Jodie's favorite snack treats.
Instead of cupcakes, cookies or cake, we had bowls of candy. I forgot to take pictures of the bowls...probably too busy easy the candy out of them.
The guests began to arrive to shower Jodie with loads of love!
I have about a million pictures of Jodie opening gifts. I just couldn't help but keep snapping away because I love her and her expressions.
Here are just a few of my favorites.
I just love this girl so much!
A few more pictures with Zak's family members.
And that was it.
Oh, one more picture...
This may be the WORST picture the three of us have taken together.
Guess we will have to make up for it with loads of photos at the wedding!
