(One of my co-hostesses and her mother-in-law)
Swissie, The Master of Cakes, made this adorable one. Where she gets the patience, I don't know.
On the menu we had rolled up stuffed puff pastry in the shape of snails, baby weiners (puppy dog tails) and frogs in all sizes (gummy style). The guest of honor made this gorgeous bowl of jello with floating edibles, but you know me and my jello phobias, so I did not have any. Of course, for the health conscious Mama to be, we had loads of fruits and veggies.
We drank wine out of baby bottles.
(My niece was NOT drinking wine...)
We decorated onesies with puffy paint.
We tried to guess what was in the baby food jars.
The Engineer's favorite game (not that he attended the event, mind you, even though it was a co-ed shower) was the poopy diaper game. You might have heard of this one. Take a diaper and put a candy bar in it. Melt in microwave. It looks remarkably like real poo. Next, guess which candy the baby ate. Much hilarity ensued as one was allowed to taste if one dared...And some did! First prize was a bottle of wine, and not these little ones that my Swissie and I made as favors. That's great motivation...
Aunt Risky gave this gift. The Marine rides motorcycles, and GG skies. He's going to be one well out-fitted dude!
This quilt was made by GG's grandma, started over 60 years ago, and finally finished last year, on GG's due date. Think “the baby maker” from The Proposal – I think this will be a lucky quilt :-)
It's fun making people smile, and making memories, and being part of family traditions. I'm glad I could be a part of this one.
Ever played the poo game? If you're a parent, what was your favorite shower gift? Would you sip wine from a baby bottle?
P.S And for those of you wondering, NO! I didn't have to go to the ER for a fourth Saturday in a row. Phew. Thanks to all my friends and relatives for staying out of trouble...
