My husband asked if we finally got the baby clean last night!
We had a sweet shower for our friend. Everything was done simply, but we had such a good time together. Mama got a nice mixture of practical (high chair, stroller, diapers) and fun (polka-dotted dresses and vintage hankie bonnets) gifts for Baby. We had a hilarious time with Baby Shower Bingo and Baby Shower Purse Game (you would be amazed at what some ladies carry in their purses!). Each mother shared what she loves most about motherhood, and we enjoyed lots of laughter and fellowship loving on our dear friend. Baby slept the entire time, even being shuffled to every woman there and enduring our chatter and laughter! Baby showers are one of the fun parts of ministry!
As I was doing my last-minute shopping yesterday, I was looking for a cupcake stand. There was a cardboard one at the “Dollar” store for $8.00, but it said Happy Birthday rather than It’s a Girl, like I thought it did when I glanced at it a few weeks ago. So I stopped in a Winners, which is similar to Ross or TJ Maxx in the States, to see if they might have one. I found a small one there that holds 13 cupcakes . . . and it was only $9.00. Let’s see . . . cardboard for $8.00 to use it once . . . or metal for $9.00 to use over and over again? I got the metal one!
I’ll leave you with a few pictures of the decorations and food.
