What a better way to ring in the first day of my 3rd trimester than a baby shower with friends & family?! Diana, Lauren, Rachel, & Kristin were so sweet to throw Baby T and me a baby shower in Houston (at Diana's beautiful house) a few weeks ago. The food was delicious, the games were fun, and the decorations were adorable!
The theme of the shower was Ties or Tutus? with owls galore!
|Ties or Tutus?!|
|Mom & Diana|
|Diaper cake & diaper owls! SO CUTE|
|Favors - Chocolate owl lollipops & hand sanitizers that said "Before you meet Katie's little cute, be sure to wash away your cooties!"|
|Pigs in a blanket & buffalo rolls|
|White chocolate popcorn & cake balls|
|Such fun flowers!|
|Baby fruit carriage!|
Games, Guests & Gifts
We played guess how big Katie's belly is and whoever got the closest won...I guess and was way off - oops!
|Rachel was the official measur-er|
The next game was too funny...Everyone had to put a paper plate on their head and draw a baby without looking. I was the judge and picked the best looking baby!
|Robyn & her winning drawing!|
|Barbara & Kristen won - guess the top baby names of 2013!|
Everyone wrote wishes for Baby T & guessed the delivery date, sex, weight, time & length...whoever is the closest will get a gift card! There were a whopping 13 guesses for girl and 6 for boy! My favorite wish was Audrey's..."I hope you aren't afraid of...lawnmowers" Now that's some solid advice!
|Dana & me|
|LeeAnn...all the way from Australia!|
|Cindy & my mom|
|Kristen & Carol|
|The Barde ladies!|
|Mom & her cousin Holly|
|Mom & me!|
|Lots of gifts for baby T!|
|Quilt my mom made baby T|
|Little peanut onesie - Rachel searched high and low for this - it's the baby's nickname :)|
The shower was SO much fun and I feel so blessed that we have so many friends/family that already love baby T so much! I can't wait for everyone to meet him/her :)
