Lisa: Baby Shower

Alan and Lisa have been close friends of my husband since as long as he can remember. Doug was a groomsman in their wedding, and Alan was a groomsman in ours. Lisa is one of the sweetest women I know.

And their having a baby!

Next month!

And it's a boy!

(Can you tell I'm excited?)

Lisa's shower was the past weekend. They baby's room is all decked out in monkeys, so there were monkeys everywhere! If you know my husband and how much he likes monkeys, you won't be surprised with how big of a kick I got out of this theme...

When I arrived, a little monkey was outside to great me...

And then when I got inside, I was greeted by the cutest diaper monkey cake I've ever seen. (FYI: If you are going to a wedding/baby shower, this present is always a hit. I think I'll make one for ever shower I go to now...)

Seriously... that cake was cute.

Lisa's Father in Law left his present on the table for all to enjoy.

His granddaughter calls him Pop, if you were wondering.

The shower was tea party themed. These little guys hung out above our food.

Lisa came up with the favors herself. That's the real ultrasound of the baby! It looks cute already...

For food we had yummy yummy scones, tea sandwiches, mini quiches, and delectable desserts.

I've only been to a handful of baby showers in my life, so this game was brand new for me. We had to pick who Lisa wanted each feature on the baby to take after. Who would have known she would pick Alan's hair for the baby when he's bald!

And we did the ever classic baby food tasting game. I suck. I got 4 out of ten. Everything orange tasted the same to me... eww

Brilliant Gift Idea #2: Baby clothes on a clothesline. Now why didn't I think of that...

Her mother in law knit a quilt for the baby. How sweet is that?

I wasn't the only photographer there. I'm jealous of her flash. (PS It's my birthday this month. Anyone want to buy me one? Or I'll take a check for $500 so I can buy one...)

Would you believe she's 8 months pregnant? At six months she was barely showing. Lucky girl.

I guess she's just got good genes!
