|The baby shower was a blast - biggest surprise was my cousin
Jessica coming - she lives in KS and I haven't seen her since I
was a freshman in high school! They kept it a secret from me
until I walked in and saw her :) She recently lost her mom, my
Aunt Yvonne, so it's extra-special that she came and got to hang
out with her aunts and cousins.
Other highlights - loved having my husband and all the guys
there, and they all seemed to enjoy themselves.
My ex-employee Kellie (got laid off because of budget, I miss
her terribly!) helped my Mom (whom she be-friended before she
became my employee) with the decorations and games and
whatnot. She's so spunky and everyone loves her - she made it a
lot of fun!
My Aunt Shirley and cousin Cherise, who are very culinary
talented, made the cutest baby cake pops in the world! Also
cute cupcakes that featured Teddy bears tucked into bed and
"Tater" and "It's a Boy" (we're calling our LO Tater for now,
until we decide on his real name). They also made an adorable
bear-themed diaper cake.
My sister and brother-in-law flew down from SF for the shower
and rented a red Ford Mustang - so that's how I "arrived" to
the shower - in style ;)
Tater got lots of great goodies - including a beautiful quilt that
my sister's best friend's Mom Nancy made - the quilt blocks are
in blue and yellow and it's solid blue very soft fleece on the
back, and the quilted stitching is a in a cloud-like design
