Baby Shower!!

For the post I 'think' you've all been waiting for!  Yesterday was FINALLY my baby shower (seems its been a long time coming with all the planning, etc) and what a day it was!  Y'all wouldn't believe the weather we had earlier in the day!  Going to pick up the cake, I had to travel across a mountain (literally..but don't worry..its a regular paved highway and it was raining here when I left.  Got to top of said mountain, the roads were COMPLETELY covered with snow!  I was driving about 15 mph I think!  Got to the other side..raining again.  Came back up mountain 30 minutes later and all the snow was gone and slush was left in its place.  Made it home, and it hailed..TWICE!  Then the sun came out.  Go figure.  Ok..enough weather talk (I just found it all!)!!  My cake I had made turned out better than gorgeous.  It was the prettiest cake I've ever seen in my life..even better than my wedding cake, imo!  The same little bakery made it that did our wedding cake, so it tasted fantastic!  Here is the cake....

We had plenty of yummy food that I, my mom, my aunt, and cousin all prepared.  Anything from snowball cake and brownies, to taco dip and pasta salad (2 types!).  Needless to say..I have quite a bit of food left over for the next several days!!

On to the party!  We played a couple of games (baby names from A-Z and anniversary/birthday game), ate, had another game for the door prize (whoever picked the slip of paper from the basket that had my middle name on it won) and then we opened gifts!!

I got some GREAT stuff..still need ALOT of stuff..but its definately a great start!!   I'm sure I'll be getting more things in from those who couldn't make it (the weather plus alot of other things kept some from being able to come) in the coming week or so.  Here are a few highlights of me opening gifts!  Oh and my wonderful cousins helped me with the presents!!  Casey handed the gifts to me and Cortney wrote down everything I got..don't know WHAT I would have done without their help..thanks again girls!!!
