It's Raining Babies!

There seems to be an abundance of babies being born lately and I LOVE IT! Here are some pictures from my oldest sister Mimi's shower last week.

We had it at our church and the theme was storks.

Here is Andrea's present to Amy. The baby heads are pictures of Mimi and Kevin when they were little. The result was very cute and just a tiny bit creepy.

We had a cupcake tower and a watermelon carriage.

We also had three different types of soup. The Italians in our front yard made a HUGE pot of Italian wedding ball soup. Four gallons actually. So if you want some soup let us know...

This is Francis, a 27" paper mache stork that Mommy made. It has been decided that Francis will be at each of our baby showers after which we can take him home and put him in our nursery until the next sister has a baby.

Here is Andrea cheating at one of the party games!

These were our centerpieces. Storks cut out of card stock and surrounded by cake pop party favors!

Mimi received many lovely gifts.

At the end of the day we all came home and flopped on the sofa. Surrounded by half eaten cake pops, scraps of card stock, bits of wrapping paper and LOTS of pots of leftover soup, our one thought was "We have WONDERFUL friends!" So thank you to everyone who came and to those of you who couldn't make it, we LOVE you!
