A SURPRISE Baby Shower!

The Mr. and I often go to Doc and Bashful's house for dinner and games, and they invited us over on May 31st to continue that tradition. However, this time when we walked through the door, I was met with a loud "SURPRISE!" and a ton of ladies waiting for The Little One and I to arrive. It was a baby shower! The Mr. had known all about it and hadn't let on at all, so I was completely surprised and didn't have even the slightest clue about it. It was so fun to be surprised!

The Little One was met with a lot of love!

The front room was decorated with wooden and vintage toys, it was so sweet! There were wooden blocks spelling out The Little One's name, teddy bears, trucks and all sorts of sweet little boy things displayed.

The food was scrumptious!

My plate - veggies and multi-grain chips for dipping in 2 flavors of hummus, teriyaki chicken skewers and coconut rice.

Esther held The Little One while I ate, she is such a good little mommy!

This may seem like an odd photo to post, but I love those little feet!

This was a fun shower game. Three teams each got a doll and the laundry basket held a diaper, onesie, shirt, pants, socks, bib, hat, sweater, mittens and a swaddling blanket for each. The crazy part was trying to find the items and dress the doll faster than the other two teams. It had to be in the right order too!


The finished products. My team won with the little well-dressed teddy bear.

Aunt Knittery helped in the nap category!

So many pretty presents!

Gift opening time!

To the ones who planned and helped out with the shower I just want to say a huge thank you. It was such a nice shower and I know it was a lot of work to prepare! Thanks for all the hard work parking your cars in hidden places and keeping the shower a surprise until the very end. It truly was a surprise! Thank you for all the nice gifts - we have a very spoiled little boy on our hands. :)


  1. Oh how fun! That is great that they actually managed to keep it a surprise! The food and decorations and everything look amazing.

    Baby feet are the very best, aren't they? :-)
