First Baby Shower

My class threw me a "suprise" (sort of...) Baby Shower yesterday. It was wonderful and hilarious. (Any Baby Shower that includes 15 boys is sure to be a good time, right?) It was complete with terrific cake and punch, chocolate ducks, a baby-food guessing game with prizes, jumping boys (I think I even saw some wrestling at one point) and sweet girls.

I took lots of pictures, and some of mine highlight my growing baby bump. Again, we don't have any easy way to get pictures on the computer (except for going to the store) right now, so those will have to wait. I have 3 that a parent e-mailed me - the message on a white board, the decked-out "kidney" table and a picture of Mrs. Butts and all her boys! Their generosity was a blessing. The big mystery gift was a nice Jogging Stroller. "Blueberry" (as my class calls Baby) also got a really adorable infant-to-toddler rocker, and lots of cute onesies, burp cloths and some children's books. And a few gift cards. It really blessed our family. We are thankful indeed! And having baby stuff at the house makes it all seem even more real.

P.S. You know it's a party at a private school one of the COOLEST things is untucking your uniform shirt... ooh, ahh. They think they are SO cool when they get to untuck their shirt. You can make their day really easily... Ha!

How fun! What a blessing. I can't wait to see the other pictures (especially that baby bump!)
Sarah's right! That IS a lot of boys. It's one thing to hear that you have 15 boys. It's another thing completely to see you in a picture with all of them! Way to go Mrs. Butts! You did it!

What a great surprise. And what sweet boys (or their parents). Yeah for showers!
