Baby Shower #1

My sister and mom threw me a baby shower, with the help of some very wonderful friends, in Palm Bay where I grew up. My mother-in-law, Carol, and sister-in-law, Kim, also flew down for the shower. We left Greg bright and early to head to the shower, while he spent the day watching football (big surprise!). The shower was at the Berger's house (very close friends, practically family). We had a great time playing the fun little shower games and just laughing and hanging out. It was so great to see everyone. I do have to say that I LOVED playing the yarn game. You know, where everyone tries to guess how round you are. I usually hate playing this game and on most occasions refuse to participate, always afraid of being way off and offending someone. But it's not so bad on the other side of the game, having everyone guess. It was a pretty funny sight to see when Andrea Jarvis shoved a pillow up her shirt to try to get an accurate measure-Andrea is a very very tiny teenager, it was quite the sight to see.

I have to talk about the adorable cake my sister ordered for me. Since the Rays are in the playoffs ( as seen from my previous posts), she decided to have the cake shop make a Rays cake. In the middle of the cake was a little blond, blue eyed baby with a Rays shirt on! So cute. I took the middle of the cake home to show Greg. He got a kick out of it but said it didn't want to eat it until they beat the Red Sox, hopefully tonight.

I am so thankful to have such great friends and feel so loved. To know that even though I don't live there anymore, people are still excited for us. Thanks to everyone that came and all the beautiful gifts, and especially to sister Heather, my wonderful mom, and Kathy and Rebekah, and everyone else that helped, for throwing me an amazing shower. (I feel like I am giving a speech) Thanks ladies, I love you guys!

Photos to come!!

I'm glad that you had so much fun at your shower! The cake was a stroke of genuis that I can't take credit for. It was mom's idea, and I only came up with the design! I'm also glad that you loved the yarn game!

By the way, yesterday, during YW, Andrea was sitting next to me, and she put my bag under her sweater to look pregnant! And, then she started doing everything that I did. It was scary for how real it looked!
