Delaine's Mail-in Baby Shower

Delaine is having our first baby girl in the very near future, which makes us very excited! But alas both sides of the family are quite far away, so the family decided to put together a mail-in Baby Shower. It was a total surprise, and Delaine had no idea what was going on, so our attempts to conceal the event were 100% successful. (Good job everyone!)

Delaine's oldest sister put together this wicked cute smilebox invitation, a screenshot of which can be seen below:

Well, on to the reveal itself... So early on Sunday morning at around 7:00 AM before church, I had the downstairs all set up for the surprise, and here is a picture of the room before Delaine was any the wiser:

(You will notice that all of the presents were wrapped, due to the big help of Teddy Pesch, who allowed us to shower her home with gifts, and who made the extra effort to wrap on top of that. How about a nice big virtual round of applause to Teddy, not only for hosting the local shower for Delaine, but also for facilitating this one. What a great help!)

So, I had to break up the video into several segments, because the videos maxed out my SD card, which is good and bad, because you have to look at each video segment separately, but the plus side is that you can pace yourself through the videos a little better with the three videos. Well, that is enough of the disclaimers, here are the four video segments with Delaine's initial reaction as the first, and the following three being the actual gift opening:

(Here is the first video)

Update: I am trying to upload the other videos, but it might take some time, so hang tight until its done...
