Baby Shower #2

Almost 36 weeks :)

I feel so blessed to have been given not one, but TWO baby showers for our third baby.  Even though this is baby number three, and it is another girl, we are basically starting all over.  Ella and this baby will be almost exactly three years apart (baby is due the week before Ella's birthday).  We've moved three times since Ella was born, which means I have cleaned out and decluttered almost all of our baby gear and baby clothes.  Since having two showers, plus people passing their un-needed baby stuff along to us, we have almost everything we'll need for our new baby.  How awesome is that?  :)

This weekend, my niece and my sister-in-law threw me a super fun family baby shower.  Unfortunately, not all that planned to attend were able to.  They were missed, but we all had a great time being together.

There was lots of yummy food! 
Chicken Salad on Homemade Bread which was tinted PINK!
Frosted Sugar Cookies in the shape of a Onesie
The basket is holding party favors - Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies
Decorated Tables ~ "It's A Girl" confetti, pink fabric, decorative glass charms, party favors
Red Velvet Cake Pops!

We played four fun games!
Guess how many M&M's are in the jar.

Amber was the closest.  I think there were 474(?) and she guessed 468(?)  I remember there were A LOT more than I thought would be in the jar and that Amber was extremely close with her guess.
 The next game was drawing a baby on top of your head.

Some of the drawings were SO good and so hard to judge.  I chose Kayla's drawing because she put the extra detail of a curly-q on the baby's head :)

Game #3 - the classic "How Big is my Belly?"

Arin misunderstood.  She thought she was supposed to guess how big her belly was :)  She was very close, so Aunt Angie rewarded her with 3 cookies!

The real winners were between me (I guessed to short ~ wishful thinking!) and Brianna, who guessed just a tad too long.  Brianna won the prize :)

The final game was only for the adults.  We all had to put paper bags over our heads. 
Then, we were told to take off whatever we didn't need on.  Aunt Becky was quick at this game.  While the rest of us were thinking about accessories that we could remove (glasses, jewelry, watches, etc), Aunt Becky slipped off her sandals and then it dawned on her that she didn't "need" that bag over her head, so she took it off!  She was the winner :)
The Gifts :)

We were given lots of sweet baby clothes and also some money to put towards a crib (we got rid of Ella's during our move from GA to FL)
The Guests:

Thank You Angie and Lauryn for hosting a super fun day!  Thank you everyone else that attended and made my day so special!
