Baby Shower For a Friend

The church women hosted a baby shower for our friend, Debbie. Another Debbie made this cute cake which tasted awesome.

Here's the expectant mommy waiting for things to get started. She was actually watching her very cute niece sitting in her car seat.

Guess who fooling around before the game? Yes, it's Nan from Momstheword.

Debbie joined in the fun. She's so cute!

We played a game of passing the pacifier on a straw to the music. This is a mother and daughter.

Debbie's SIL and a friend.

Two of the younger girls. The one in orange won this game.

This game required a player to fold a cloth diaper and pin it onto a doll blindfolded. The fastest won. This is a mother and daughter competing. The mother won over all with a time of 45 seconds. Wow!

More brave moms competed for the coveted prize.

Two of our teens bravely participated.

On with the gift opening and cake & punch.

A hand crocheted blanket by one of the ladies.

There were a lot of gifts, mostly cute clothes and soft blankets, diapers and various other very cool things. I thought this gift from Debbie's niece was pretty neat. This young lady had attached diapers, toys and baby items to a wreath.

I'm pretty sure Debbie has all she needs for her first baby. I think she had fun and was very thankful for all that we did for her. God bless Debbie and her new baby and family.

  10. She is a pretty mama!

    It looks like a fun and creative party, but I think putting the diaper on a teddy bear is much harder than on the doll because the legs are stiffer. :)
