our little sleepy stink dog livin' it up! recently we have gotten him out of the habit of sleeping with us at night, instead he has to stay in his own bed. surprisingly, he hasnt really put up much of a fight. i think the reason for that is because he loves this new bed so much that he doesnt really mind!
the party had a beach/nautical theme, so barbara went all out and ordered a bunch of fun items to go with that idea. she had boxes with seashell designs on it, some seashell candies, lifesavers (get it?), individual goldfish cracker packets, sandal shaped bookmarks, and a few other fun beach themed items.
after all the candy was put in the boxes, it was my job to put a ribbon around them and seal them with a special sticker made just for the occasion. it reads 'thank you for celebrating with us! welcome baby brink!' wow, sis thought of everything!
here are some of the finished boxes ready to be put into the cool nautical themed canvas bags. a very clever and fun little party favor! great idea sis, thanks for all the hard work you did with planning this shower!
after the games and the gifts, we were able to just chill out and have a blast catching up and talking about what life will be like when the little one gets here. carrie had a lot of great advice (and a couple horror stories that we are going to try to forget...)
oh sure, now you're wide awake, huh keith?
this is the amazing cake that carrie had made for us! the theme for the party and for the baby's nursery is nautical, so this was a perfect touch! in case you are wondering why it says buffalo, well keep wondering...
jeffry lee, tim, and i were involved in a pretty funny baby shower game and these are the sad remnants of the silliness!
