Okay -- so that isn't the best title, but it describes the fun we had. Dang! I forgot how much work a party can be and especially when it's at a hall on the other side of town and you have to pack EVERYTHING in your vehicle to take with you!! I managed and so did my sister-in-law, Rose. Rosie was a great help and I'm so thrilled she helped with the shower. Thank you, Rose!!! My sister was beautiful -- it's the baby glow...hee hee...and she received a lot of presents. She so deserved this day and I'm glad we could give it to her.
Here are a bunch of pictures to share from the shower and goodies I made for it.
The marquee sign display...too cool! I stood in the freezing rain waiting for this sign to rotate so I could finally get a picture.
Jennifer made a deliciously beautiful cake -- yellow and cherry chip...mmmmmm!!
I made these little decorations which were easy and cute! Here is where I got the idea from :D
My busy sister who can't sit still and hates to have her picture taken...ugh! LOL
See what I mean...
A diaper cake I made for a gift. Hey, I finally realized what I could use that big ole tag I bought ions ago for...lol
My sister and Gabby reading a homemade card from my sweet Marisa. Seriously, her words choked everyone up!! My sister actually teared up reading what Marisa wrote. I have to get my sister to read it to me again so I can copy it down. She made me proud with that one!!
Gabby LOVES skulls and was delighted to get this t-shirt from Marisa and I which I purchased online from here. I blinged it up a bit at the bottom. As you can see, the minute the gift opening was over, she had changed her outfit and put her new t-shirt on...love that kid!!
And lastly, here is the baby book I worked on for what seems like forevah!! LOL Actually, I took more time collecting supplies and thinking about it than actually working on it. I still owe my sister a few more pages, but I had decided to give it to her at the shower rather than wait. You can click on the picture to make it larger and please excuse the poor shots. I forgot to take pictures before wrapping and therefore had to take them after the shower in poor lighting...ugh!
And may I just say that I am utterly and completely EXHAUSTED today!! As I type this I'm still in my pajamas and loving every minute. My brain has been on overtime a lot this past week and needs a break, so I'm taking it...lol
