Baby Shower #3

So I realize these are a little bit overdue, but I’ve been so caught up with being full term and the fact that it’s totally a waiting game right now that I forgot to post pictures from our Baby Shower #3!  The one that happened to be in town and in the comfort of our own home.  It was thrown by my good friends Nancie and Sam (with the help of John, Rena, and Alex too)!  On the day of the baby shower, they all came over about 3 hours earlier with bags and bags of food and dishes and decorations and we slaved away until the first guest arrived.  There was a HUGE array of appetizers, entrees, desserts and drinks.  The decor was an assortment of blue, green, and orange with an “A” and sports theme.  Thank you Ria Photography and Lori for capturing the fun event!

Here we are… Mommy and Daddy to be!  :)

Can’t wait to put these cute clothes on our baby boy!

Bruschetta, turkey burgers, grilled cheese sandwiches, tomato soup, and so much more!

The dessert table was a fantastic line up of cake pops, cupcakes, nutter butter cookies, chocolate covered marshmallows, cookies, pumpkin fluff, fruit and the list goes on…

A few of our guests mingling. :)

Who can free the naked baby from the ice cube the fastest without actually touching the ice cube?  Some techniques were blowing, pouring beer in the cup, crushing the cup to melt the ice with hand warmth.

Play-doh baby making time.  Top left baby in red was the winner, congrats Lawrence!

We got a lot more items off our registry and our first pack of diapers and wipes hehe.  Thanks friends!!

And the parting gift was cookies and sports theme suckers with a chevron thank you tag!

We’re just sitting here patiently waiting for my water to break, the contractions to start, and for baby to be born so we can put all this stuff to good use!  :)

    Hope things are going well with the contractions and stuff! Good luck the delivery and can’t wait to welcome the little nugget into the world :)

  2. Awww! I’m so excited for you to be a mommy. The intense love you feel for your baby doesn’t even begin to compare with the love you’ll have for him the second you look into his eyes. <3 Enjoy every moment, friend. xo

  6. Cute baby shower! You are a beautiful Momma! I’ve never seen these baby shower games before, creative and looks like fun. Hope your water breaks soon so you get to see you little boy and put him in one of those adorable outfits :)

  7. Hello Miss Sandy…so you are STILL pregnant??? Poor girl, I am so sorry to hear you are playing the waiting game. I thought of you the other day when a friend of mine told she is expecting. The baby will be here soon! I showed up late too, I was supposed to make my appearance around xmas…well I showed up on January 5. :)

  8. What a sweet, adorable shower! My best friend is pregnant, and I can’t wait to throw her a shower–and now I’m getting some good ideas :)
