There was also a board where guest's baby photos were displayed, and we had to guess who belonged to which picture. For some, it was so easy and for others, it was so hard!!!
At each place setting there was a blank, white bib for each guest to decorate. This was also a place where people got very creative! We now have about 40 hand-decorated baby bibs!
Oh, didn't I tell you? I used to be a bib model:
After lunch, three groups competed against each other in the "Toilet Paper Diaper Game." Corinne, (wearing the bib) won the audience vote!
And after that, guests were asked to cut a piece of yarn the size of my belly. They came up individually and wrapped them around my stomach. Believe it or not, we had someone who pretty much cut the exact circumference of my belly! Most people WAY over-shot how big I was...thanks...
Near the end of the party we had cake! But this wasn't just any cake. Since I'm not a huge cake person, this was a Napolean: Puff pastry layered with vanilla custard and topped with icing, YUM! Here we are with our moms!

Before I knew it, it was 4:00pm and the men had started packing up the cars with all the gifts. By the time I got home, everything was already brought into the house and put away down in the basement...how's that for service?! On their way out, guests were asked to take a homemade bar of soap from Dragonfly Soaps to "Baby their Skin", and there was also white-chocolate lollipops in different baby related shapes. We used Dragonfly Soaps for favors at my Bridal Shower, and they were such a hit! Every last bar went again this time!
Thank you thank you to everyone who showed their love and support to Chris and me this weekend, especially our moms. We are blessed to have such kind and generous people in our lives, and to have had such a wonderful Baby Shower!
