Having a baby shower in The Big City turned out to be hard for my friends Out Here to attend, so my neighbor and “Mormon” friend threw me a great shower down here!!!
This woman and her mom always throw the best parties, and this one was NO exception.
When asked, “What’s up with all the monkeys??”
All I could say was that I was giving birth to my third boy, so my home was about to become a monkey house!!!
Here’s a peek at this fiesta fabulosa:
I failed to get a photo of the food. There were plenty of beans, meat, and buns, PLUS Callie’s FAMOUS baked goods. She brought fresh (like just out of the oven fresh) cinnamon rolls and the cutest little cupcakes all decorated up with homemade frosting in brown and blue. I have to say that I like that stuff a little, even if I’m not supposed to have chocolate.
I got LOTS more diapers and wipes, which we obviously needed, plus I got some super cute outfits, picture frames, and toys.
But by far the most amazing baby gift I have ever received is this scrapbook FILLED with pre-scrapped pages that I only have to put the photos in! My fantastic scrapping friends started at birth with a sweet quote about little mouths and feet, and scrapped complete pages throughout the whole year, month by month! I might have cried a little when I opened it, and I also might have (just maybe) toted it around with me for the next few days to show everyone I ran into how great this little guys baby book is going to be.
It was such a great night filled with friends and food and fun, I just don’t know what I did to get so dang lucky with all the love I felt from all my friends that night!!
