We kind of failed at taking a good group photo though.
Rachael made a freaking ADORABLE owl cupcake cake that I'm in love with.
I've been bugging her for forever to start her own bakery, because her stuff is the BOMB. I swear the frosting on these puppies had straight crack in it. I may or may not have eaten SEVERAL tops of the cupcakes (i.e., the frosting alone!) after everyone left. I'm not proud about it...
Seriously - how adorable are these?
My Mom did an amazing job of running the games - she even had my all time favorite - the diaper candy bar game! I consider myself quite the candy bar connoisseur, so I'm pretty sure I would have won this game had I played. :-) Though she did throw in some wild cards like Idaho Spud (ever had that?) and Rocky Road (my new favorite candy bar!).
My friend Kasey who's in a race to the finish with me (though she'll probably win - she's due two weeks ahead of me) even made it out. We enjoyed holding each other's bellies like idiots. :-)
There were a TON of gifts and I went from feeling like we had NOTHING to feeling like we have TOO MUCH. We certainly have WAY too many clothes for newborn and 3 month olds, and way too many adorable socks / hats / bibs. I'm excited to repay all the favors soon with my two friends that are pregnant but far enough behind me to reap the benefits of hand-me-downs (one is having a boy for sure, one doesn't know yet but I hope it's a boy!).
Four generations all together!
It was definitely a lovely day, and we're definitely also all idiots. :-)
And I look HUGE in this picture. It's so weird because sometimes I don't feel that big and then when I see a picture or catch myself in the mirror I'm kind of SHOCKED at how big I am. Is that really what I look like? Is that scale number really right? Don't even get me started on that....
Next up - an organized nursery!
