See the beautiful photos from Dylan Dreyer's intimate baby shower

This Thanksgiving, mom-to-be Dylan Dreyer has a big reason to give thanks: She and husband Brian Fichera are expecting a baby boy in December.

On Tuesday, Dreyer gathered at Manhattan's Hunt & Fish Club with an intimate group of her TODAY co-workers and friends for a celebratory lunch in honor of the baby-to-be. Kathie Lee Gifford, Hoda Kotb, Tamron Hall, Savannah Guthrie, Stephanie Ruhle and Jenna Bush Hager were among those toasting Dreyer. Natalie Morales and Sheinelle Jones couldn't make it to the shower, but sent their love.

Dreyer and friends played a yay-or-nay trivia game to test Dreyer's baby knowledge — did you know babies don't fully form kneecaps until they're 6 months old? Dreyer didn't! In fact, she scored only four correct answers out of 10 questions. Better hit the books!

Dylan Dreyer gamely guesses in the baby trivia game -- don't worry, Dylan, just trust your instincts!

Dreyer confessed that she's never changed a diaper in her entire life. She'll soon have plenty of practice at that.

Creamy mac and cheese was on the menu, which made the expectant mamas of TODAY very happy! Savannah Guthrie is pregnant with her second child, and also due in December.

On the menu was steak, arctic char, fried chicken, truffled tater tots, creamy macaroni and cheese, and crispy Brussels sprouts. The mac and cheese was a favorite for Dylan and TODAY anchor Savannah Guthrie, who is also pregnant and expecting her second child in December.

Awww, a little baby raincoat! Dylan Dreyer and Savannah Guthrie bond over cute baby clothes at Dylan's baby shower.

When she announced her pregnancy on the TODAY show this summer, Dylan said that as soon as she saw the baby's image in a sonogram "dance around and touch his hand to his face, I fell in love instantly."

Dream big, little one! Dylan holds up one of the gifts at her baby shower; she's expecting her first child in December.

Sometimes, Dylan confessed in a pregnancy video diary for TODAY.com, she gets a little panicked about how dramatically her life is going to change at age 35. She said her husband Brian helps allay her fears by reminding her that their baby will be a combination of both of them, and all the love they have for each other.

"Then I just sit back and it's like, OK. And I get into that excited phase again where I just can't wait to meet this little guy," Dylan said in her video.

Nothing but sunny skies ahead for Dylan Dreyer at her weather-themed baby shower with some of the ladies of TODAY.

The baby shower was weather-themed, appropriate for a meteorologist, and Cheree Berry Paper created menus and straws in the shape of suns, as well as sunny yellow cocktail napkins and "Stork Forecasting" cards where the guests made their birthday, size and name predictions. Dylan promises that she did not plan the timing of her baby to get out of winter storm coverage!

The cutest little baby cake! Dylan and some of the ladies of TODAY gathered for an intimate lunch to celebrate the impending arrival of her son, due in December.

In another video diary, Dylan shared that she just feels hungry all the time! (We can relate, Dylan.) Mostly, she said, "I just can't believe I'm this lucky. I am so grateful and thank God every night and pray for him to keep his angels around our little one so that he’s safe and protected."

"Rain or shine, it's almost baby time!" The perfect sentiment for a meteorologist's baby shower.

When guests arrived, they placed their gifts in a portable play yard by Summer Infant (perfect for taking advantage of nice weather with the new baby). Guests could take home playful YoeeBaby feather toys that did double duty as table decorations.

We wish for nothing but sunny skies ahead for Dylan, Brian and their "little biscuit" (as she's nicknamed him). Congratulations, Dylan!
