I'm posting as soon as I can! I was at my mom's until 9pm on Saturday visiting with out of town family and by the time we got home and moved all the gifts, it was bedtime. Sunday we had a Wedding shower to attend right in the middle of the day, so I worked on getting things out of bags and Thank You notes done, so I could organize for a picture.

Shower went great. My Mom and Mother in-law hosted a great party. Food was wonderful and everyone was mingling and having a great time. I believe there were 31 people total, including myself and my mothers. Only about 5 people couldn't make it.

Games:
1. There was a board to guess the baby's birthday and they included weight for a tie breaker. Closest guess will win a secret prize with the birth announcement.
2. As they arrived they were given a silly band. During the shower if you heard someone say baby you could steal their band. OMG...this got really funny.
3. We played "My Water Broke." My mom froze little pink bears in ice cubes and everyone had to suck or hold it to melt the cube. First one to free the bear yells, "My Water Broke!"
4. As I was opening gifts my sister asked about 6 questions that they had to answer to keep them entertained. EX: How much weight do you think Marika has gain so far during this pregnancy? What did Adam build for the baby's room, What has Marika been craving the most? ETC.....

Diaper Cake made my My MIL


CAKE!


The Birthday Guess Board


The Favors also made my my MIL. She is a NICU nurse and was able to get bottles from her unit. They are filled with candy and then wrapped with a bookmark she also made.


From Left to Right. My Mom, me, and MIL


My Grandma and I. HAHA I had to include, because she is too cute.


All Gifts back at my house.


And a bunch of close up pictures. There is a print out of the swing that will arrive in the mail too!





(Sorry- I took these pictures late at night with little light.)

The black and pink butterfly outfit and shopping cart cover are made by my MIL. Not sure if you recall, but they match the diaper bag she also made. Here it is....


SO, Savannah is spoiled! The only big item we didn't get was the pack and play. We will get that in the next few weeks, with the Chicco infant carrier, and some little things we still need. OMG...the shower was amazing and I have so much stuff now. Yes, three bobby pillows. I plan on returning 2 and a few NB size clothes I got, since I also have enough of those.

Now to address and send the Thank you notes and wash and organize all the gifts. So glad I did the Thank you's right away!

I do. I have a receipt for one and then my registry to use for the other. I'm going to keep one that I didn't register for, because I like the print better.

Thanks everyone! Yes, I have a lot of goodies. Well....Savannah does.
