It was baby shower day this past Saturday! Or should I say BABIES shower? The shower was so adorable and fun. I can't thank Liza, Amanda and Rebecca enough for their kindness and thoughtfulness in putting this together! I hope all of our guests enjoyed themselves.
As you know from my previous posts, the twins' nursery is going to have a safari/jungle theme, and our hostesses incorporated that theme into the baby shower decor. Everything was so cute and lovingly handmade!
We decided to have a co-ed baby shower, and one of our hostesses made these buttons for us and all of the family members as well. Many of our family members traveled from out of state to be here this weekend. It was so meaningful! I hope they liked their cute "Grandma To Be," "Grandpa To Be," and "Auntie To Be" buttons! Toots adorbs.
My contribution to the shower was making two three-tiered diaper cakes. They were actually pretty simple to construct and turned out well.
As guests were arriving, everyone had the opportunity to contribute to an ABC book for the twins. We had to break out the colored pencils and remember how to stay within the lines. I can't wait to see the finished book. My sister took the pages back home with her to Texas to get laminated and bound.
After enjoying lunch, it was time for a couple of games. The first game was a "Guess Who" game, where guests had to guess whether something baby-related pertained to me or hubby. Example: whose mother was in labor for seven hours? Answer: Hubby! Whoever got the most correct won.
The second game was so funny. Our guests had to make a baby out of clay and then hubby and I judged which one was the best. They finished babies were so different from each other and creative.
The afternoon proceeded with the opening of gifts. I always find this part of showers to be kind of awkward, but our family and friends were so generous that we couldn't help but be shocked by their generosity and thankful for them.
Gus wanted to help open gifts too!
The afternoon ended with dessert. I felt so bad cutting into this beautiful cake!
What a wonderful afternoon to spend with friends and family! It also was a milestone week for us because we reached the third trimester this weekend. The babies are going to be here before we know it!
