Surprise Baby Shower *pics*
So I'm on DD's old school's PTA and we had a meeting tonight. Also book fair is next week. So my long time friend, who is also on PTA, asks me to come help her with book fair set up after our meeting. We're walking over to where the book fair will be held and she says she needs to turn off some lights real quick (she also works at the school). She unlocks a door and tells me to get in there. I go in and the room is filled with PTA members (some from the past), DD's old principal, and DD's 1st grade teacher (DS also had her for 2nd grade). There are balloon, food, cake, presents, decorations, the whole deal. And I was so surprised. I'll have to take pics to post of the gifts tomorrow, one lady made me this most beautiful diaper cake with all kinds of goodies to decorate it (baby spoons, rattles, rubber ducks, etc). It's so amazing I don't want to take it apart.
Feeling so loved and blessed and just wanted to share. Since this is my third and I'm so much older than some moms I really wasn't expecting this. I'm still touched and surprised when people give us hand-me-downs.
It was a great day :)

*Since it was a surprise I didn't have my camera to take pics at the shower, but these are the ones DH took last night*

This is all the bags and the bouncer seat, the diapers I had already put in the closet.


This is the diaper cake.


And the real cake (this picture I took off my friends FB page since obviously I didn't bring it home - LOL).

And it was so sweet my kids past teacher wrote on her card that she wouldn't retire until she could be Truely's 1st grade teacher :wub:

Sounds like you have some genuinely kind loving friends. I bet you felt so warm receiving a surprise like that. It gives me the warm fuzzies reading about it. I'm glad your friends were able to do such a wonderful thing like that for you. :smile:

I so don't want to take apart the diaper cake. I imagine it must have taken some time, plus I think it's so cute. But my friend who made it told me I can't wait to long, they're size 1 diapers ;)
