Baby Shower Fun!

Well, I am finally back from a week long visit at my parent's house. It was such a fun, exhausting, jam packed week! Baby Shower, Trunk-Or-Treat, Birthday Party, Trick or Treating, Swimming, Park, Dairy Chores, Bowling, 4-H Banquet, Making Christmas Presents and lots of fun with family and friends. I got to see my grandparents who just so happen to be two of my favorite people in the world. They traveled all the way from Montana to see everyone so I was very grateful to be able to spend time with them.
The main reason for this trip was to throw a baby shower for my sister, Toni. Mathew came a little early and we weren't able to get up there before he was born so we thought it would be fun for everyone to come and visit and get to actually meet the new little guy. We had a bath time themed shower to get her stocked up on all the little necessities.

I talked my wonderful husband into making cookies for the shower.
Rubber Ducky Banks were given out as prizes for the games.

Cupcakes! Enough said!

Our food spread. Cupcakes, lemon cookies and toasted bread with tomato peel roses made by my sweet hubby. My mom made 2 delicious pots of homemade soup as well.

I made this "Proud Big Sister" shirt for Alexia to wear to the shower. I cut out the letters from fabric scraps and sewed them onto the shirt leaving the edges raw so they would fray a little.

I made the "It's A Boy!" sign above their heads but this is the only picture I took of it :(

We had such a fun day celebrating the birth of little Mathew. It was so wonderful to get to spend time with family and friends and to show Toni just how much we love her!
