My stepdaughter’s mother-in-law, Sue, hosted Stacey’s first baby shower this past Saturday (March 24). The shower was attended by Stacey’s mother, some members of the church at which Sue attends services, Stacey’s sister-in-law and myself.
The theme of the baby shower was “Diapers and Wipes”. With twins, Stacey and Mike are going to need LOTS of diapers and wipes!
As is the case at all baby showers, attendees played games. In this game the hostess (Sue) read a story aloud. Every time the word Right is mentioned players passed the gift to the right. When players heard Left then they passed the gift to the left. It was a very fun game.
It was my lucky day. I won not one prize, but two prizes, during game play! All shower prize gifts were thoughtful gifts, including the two that I won. My first prize was liquid bath soap and a foam sea sponge. I won this prize because I had the closest guess for the number of jelly beans in a baby bottle. The baby bottle held 199 jelly beans. My guess was 198! My second prize was a Cool Gear Double Wall Cup. I won this prize because my food plate had the word “baby” (or was it “babies”?) written on the bottom of it. This cup will get lots of use as a Smoothie receptacle.
Speaking of food …
and the food tasted as good as it looked!
Now for one final photograph — my favorite of the mother-to-be …
The lamb was one of the first shower gifts that Stacey unwrapped.
Stacey’s next baby shower is next month and will be hosted by her mother. Bob and I plan to have a “Welcome Babies Party” one-three months after the birth of Harper and Juniper.
