Dana's baby shower

Sabrina, Grandma and Izzie.

Baby shower spread. We had a great appetizer table. I love the decorations that Jackie bought.

Dana's baby room is going to be jungle theme. So cute!

Here's Dana's mother-in-law, Grandma with her friend Eunice and Aunt Judy.

Dana and Julie.

Here I am trying to get a picture with my girls before I got to the party. This was the best we could get. They are just SO fast these days!

So, I took a picture with each of them. Here is me and Izzie.

Maddie and Momma.

Here I am all dressed up.

Today was Dana's baby shower. It went off very well I think. Julie, Jackie and I hosted. Although, truthfully I didn't end up doing too much. I designed the invitations and I made some appetizers. I took some pictures too. But the party was a big success. Dana is looking wonderful. S got a lot of great gifts. It's fun to be on the other side of a baby shower. Now I know what all those baby things are for. I remember being overwhelmed and wondering how or what I was going to use half of the stuff for. I'm glad some people knew better than I did and bought things I wouldn't have thought to buy for my shower. A baby shower can be a corny event, usually filled with silly little games, but it is a time for the experienced mom's to hand down and share information with the new mom. Passing on of knowledge.

While at the shower, John was in charge of Maddie and Izzie. He was also playing Dungeons and Dragons (for the first time in months!) Basically the girls played for a bit, then he put them to nap. They napped for 2.5 hours (of course, since I wasn't home to enjoy it) and then he fed them a snack. After D&D he brought the girls to the end of the baby shower so they could meet and visit with people.

It was a long and short day. This morning seems like a long time ago, but then again, it seems like the day just flew on by. I'm about to go meet Ashley at the gym, so my day isn't quite over yet.

pictures to follow later.... (but I'm off to the gym right now!)
