Baby Shower Ideas & Recipes!

"Normal" people might fill a cute diaper holder thingie, maybe a drawer, or the shelves in a cute baby changing table.

I make a cake!!

My sister-in-Law is gonna have a baby!! I am soooo excited!! Not only because I get to be an aunt again. (she already has the perfect daughter)
But because SHE is gonna have a baby, and I AM NOT!! Whoo hooooo!!
(don't get me wrong.. I love my children... I love having a lot of them **rolling eyes** But I really think I have done my part to populate the world... I'm just glad to be able to share that huge responsibility with others!)

I was very excited to be able to help host the baby shower. I just love doing that stuff!
making cute foods.... cute centerpieces (the diaper cake)
She is having a boy! sooo The fun began with the cute baby blue & toy covered diaper cake.
Then progressed to a punch that looked kinda like used bath-water, complete with rubber duckies swimming around.

Who said you have to serve food on plain old platters?
Go to the toy store and use toys!
Dump trucks hold dip.
A bucket is great to hold food, a Frisbee can hold cookies, a cute place-mat can display your crackers,
Use your imagination! get creative!
Its not a ton of money.. and it'll be a big hit!
This is my sister-in-law....
she is one of "those people"
you know... the kind of woman that is teaching yoga while 8 months pregnant, beautiful hair, amazing figure.....
you know..... the total opposite of me.
To top it all off... she is super sweet, a wonderful aunt to all of her nieces and nephews.
We are blessed to have her in our life.

Look how great she looks at 8 months pregnant! geesh.
