Welcome Rossi Jean! Isnt' this poster great? Amber, who co-hosted this event, made this. The hand prints are actually Layla's hands. Isn't that awesome? I would have never thought to do that.
This is how the baby shower cake started out. I did a pull a part cake. I used to do them when I was a cake decorator at Publix. I wish I had used Publix icing for this cake, but I used Pillsbury already in a can. I will NEVER to that again. Here's why:
The icing in the can was just too soft. It kept cavin in between the cupcakes. But I'm still proud of my cake. And no one complained while they were eating it, lol. And I have to tell you that Grandpa Hut actually baked the cupcakes for me.
Here is 1/2 the table spread. Cheese and crackers, spinach dip, chocolate dipped pretzel rods, lollipops, deviled eggs, apples and grapes with this awesome dip that Amber makes.
Chips and dip, chocolates that look like baby items, pig in a blanket, and a baby bottle that was filled with M&M's. The bottle was for a game of guessing how many are in it.
This is Amber taking a picture of me, taking a picture of her. She was the best. We had the baby shower at her house. What a great hostess she is.
Wade and Diana in front of the poster. Wade didn't think I would post this because he has a cracker in his mouth.
Some shots of the guests.
Opening the first gift. Diana wanted Layla to help her. As you will see in other pictures....all the kids ended up helping her.
These were some shots of the kids helping Diana with the gifts. There were I believe 4 helping her. I wasn't in the best spot to take shots of the gifts. She got alot of diapers, formula, toys, bibs, clothes, baby snacks. Plus a few other items like the photo frame and a baby book, a foot print and hand print set. Lots of great stuff.
Finally the last bag. We played a few games in between. Baby Bingo, Word Scramble, Guess how many M&M's in the baby bottle. We also played the clothes pin game, where everyone got a clothes pin and if you crossed your arms or legs and you got caught, whoever caught you got your clothes pin. If you caught someone you could take theirs. The one with the most pins won. And then we played the diaper game only no one knew it was a game. I made little diapers to wear as party favor pins. One unsuspecting guest had a "dirty" diaper. Diana won that one (of course). Diana's mom won the clothes pin game. Amanda, one of Diana's childhood friends won the word scramble. She had told us all that she was good at that game and she was going to win it and she did. Diana's grandmother won Baby Bingo and the baby bottle game. It was loads of fun.
After the baby shower, we got the boxing gloves out. Everyone loves playing with the boxing gloves. Here is Layla getting ready to box Uncle Gotty. Those of you on FaceBook, there is a video of Layla and Uncle Gotty boxing.
Layla and Maddie boxing. Maddie is like Uncle Gotty in that she laughs too much to box.
Last but certainly not least is Layla boxing with Daddy. She switched up gloves...she has the black ones and Wade is wearing pink. In less than a day, Rossi Jean will be here. I am so excited. I will post baby pictures as soon as I can tomorrow or Thursday. Thanks for taking the journey with me to Rossi's birth. It has been a fun journey and I'm sure it is going to be more fun in the future.
