|A picture of Tony & I and his family|
My first Baby shower was at the church I grew up at, that a lone made it special. It was such a nasty raining day, yet we still had an amazing turn out. Even Tony's oldest sister and cousin came up from Arkansas to come, it was a wonderful surprise.

1. Baby gift bingo- Guest were given a sheet of paper, with a blank bingo grid on it. They were instructed to fill in items they think I will receive as gifts. As I open the gifts, they would cross them off accordingly, until a bingo was called.
2. Draw the baby face- Guests were given a piece of paper with an outline of a baby face. They were instructed to draw a picture of what they think our baby would look like. Then I pick my favorite out of the bunch.
3. Baby Story- This was a favorite. Each table was given a little string with plastic diaper pins on them. My mom read a little "baby story," she mad up. Every time the word baby was said, guest had to pass the safety pins to the next person. Last one holding the pins won.
4. Count the cotton balls- A giant plastic baby bottle, that was filled with cotton balls were passed around the room. Guest were told to give an estimate on how many were in there.

Give the baby a trait- Guest were given a piece of paper with a list of traits. They had to guess whether or not I wanted the baby to have a trait after me or my husband. Then I would give my answers and the one with the most correct, got a prize.
Seriously, how cute are these cakes?
Both showers were so much fun. We received so many wonderful gifts; both handmade and new. These are some special creations that some of our dear friends made for us. How cool is the diaper wreath? Never saw one before. We were truly blessed to get some amazing gifts and a lifetime of memories. Thanks for looking back with me.
