Baby Shower

The baby shower for my sister on Saturday ended up being a success. I'm fairly sure both the guys and gals had an enjoyable time and everything ran smoothly. Alex & Kris ended up with a LOT of nice baby items in addition to a hefty amount of Target gift cards. They were talking about it earlier today and I think are going to be able to afford everything they needed (furniture-wise) from just the shower. It was great to be able to see such a variety of people; family, old neighbors, former coworkers, friends, and godparents (to name a few) along with meeting some new faces.

The other 2 hosts and I had guests play several games, and were even able to convince the guys to participate in some- mainly the "Guess What Candy Bar is Melted in the Diaper" and "Chocolate Milk Chug Contest". As for food, there was plenty of my dad's home cooked chili along with some fabulous cupcakes, cookies, and brownies. A few pictures from the shower are below...enjoy (the bottom two are by Alex's friend Tiffany)!
