Hfield Baby Shower...

...Last Sunday, I had my shower on my dad's side of the family. My sister, H and my grandma threw it for me at the Rosebed Inn. It's this historic bed and breakfast in Cape and the chef there makes AMAZING food! I think he was less than excited when I told him the menu I wanted, as my sister says, I wanted bar food: spinach artichoke dip, potato skins, teriyaki chicken: it was all AWESOME and I even got to bring some home. I also may or may not have eaten the swizzle chocolate sticks off the leftover pieces of the Chocolate Resurrection cake :) Oh this is also where I threw my sister's baby shower when she was pregnant with H.

Here are the favors they made. It says, "Hugs, kisses, baby wishes. Make a wish for Baby G!" It is frosted with the word WISH on the side and is filled with Hershey kisses. People could reuse it with a votive as a candle holder.
H was my helper and did a fantastic job. I was so overwhelmed by everything we got for Baby G! It was a good thing we left the doggies back home with their Aunt Liz because we definitely did not have room for them on the way back. I won't bore you with the 500 pics of me opening gifts so here's just one:
My sister made me this adorable diaper cake! My dad gave me that piggy bank with change in it. It's from his bank and they give it to kids when they open a kid savings account with them. My friend's son was sitting by me and when I opened it, he said, "I have one from Mr. Butch!" It was super cute.
As we were sitting around visiting before the shower, Kristal's mom said, "You don't know what you're having? Oh, well...don't read my card then!" She definitely got me a boy card but it's my fault because we do refer to Baby G as a him.

There were all kinds of people, friends I've known forever, my second grade teacher, one of my part-timers, my sister's MIL, my dad's former secretary, who geesh she's been a part of our family for over 15 years at least! I remember in high school if I couldn't get ahold of my dad, I'd call her and she'd take care of whatever I needed and I'm sure she loved when I'd call and ask random things like, "What temperature should I bake this at?" or "How do you clean this out of the carpet?"

A big thanks to everyone for showering Baby G! We are so happy to have you all be a part of our lives and can't wait for Baby G to meet each of you.

Ha, great job by sis with the diaper cake. Now that is practical.

Sounds like you'll be busy with thank you notes...
