Baby Shower Fun!








Our baby shower for Jimmy(my son) and Allison's baby was great. We had way too much food but now we have lots of leftovers to eat today. Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. My daughter and I made the cupcakes, they have M&M's on them that we had ordered that said baby boy and baby C. I had wanted to order some cupcakes from Bonbonerie, which is a wonderful bakery here in Cincinnati. But my sweetie gets like Steve Martin's character in Father of the Bride anytime we even mention the Bonbonerie . I think he is still in sticker shock from when we got Melissa's wedding cake from there. LOL So to ease his mind, we decided to make our own, we dyed the frosting blue and everyone said they were great. But if you are ever here in Cincy make a trip to the Bonbonerie, especially all of you tea lovers because they do have excellent pastries and teas. So a good time was had by all and the parents to be did get alot of of their must need items. Hope everyone has a good Monday. I am fighting the beginnings of a nasty cold so I'm not the happiest camper today. I never get colds like this and that is because I am that person who walk around with Lysol wipes and hand sanitizer so I guess I'll just have to wait for it to run it's course. :-)

It looks like you all had a great time! I loved the decorations and the food :-) The picture album on your post is wonderful!
Hope you are feeling better---they say if you take something in the beginning of a cold/flu it helps shorten the duration--tamiflu or something? Wish I could remember the name, lol!

Joan,
So happy for all of you that the shower was a hit...nothing cuter than baby clothes and sweet goodies!

Sorry to hear about your impending cold...hubbin' has been battling that for over a week, now...finally got him into the doctor on Saturday...just to find that it has most likely about run its course...but he did give him some powerful cough medicine to help him sleep at night...and a stand by antibiotic just in case...b/c of all the traveling he has been having to do.

Hope you are up and feeling better very soon!!

Blessings...

So happy that everything went off as planned, but you knew it would! All that anxiety over nothing. By the way, I love the "travels with my cat" in the sidebar!
