Kandie's Baby Shower!

Last Saturday, the 21st, we had a baby shower for Kandie. Shannon hosted it at her beautiful home, and Diana and I did food and whatnot. We are so excited to have little baby Evelyn joining the family on April 9th! (I'm crossing my fingers for a niece on my birthday...the 7th!)
....
Kandie and Gray hangin out at the shower. Gray and Evelyn will be 16 months apart; just like my sister Lindsay and I!

I am so proud of the diaper cake. Didn't it turn out cute?!

Beautiful cake from Albertson's, my friend Jessica does a great job. I picked chocolate with fresh strawberries and it was YUM!

The food...Diana did veggies & dip and fruit & dip, and I did the spinach dip in the bread bowl. Lotsa dip!

Diaper Cake & The Wishing Tree (Many thanks to my mom's tree for sacrificing some branches...)

And the beautiful favors! I used Sue Sparks sugar cookie recipe...they turned out gorgeous AND yummy! (See some of her talent here and here. She is incredible!)
Thanks to Lindsay for helping me frost, decorate, & wrap them up! Oh, and Matt for his help with the sprinkles ;)

We played the game where you guess how many TP squares around Kandie's baby belly is...and someone guessed EXACTLY 12 squares!
Kandie also got some adorable girly outfits and things for Evelyn. It sure is different having a girl!
All in all, I'd say the shower was a huge success. Thank you everyone who came and/or contributed in any way!

The diaper cake is darling! Also, I love the camera. I am wanting to invest. I have decided. What type of camera did you guys get? I am looking in to a couple of different ones. Email me with the goods.

Hi Kara~ It's great to have a baby around huh!! They're so precious, I need to post some more pics... I still can't get over how jealous I am that you're so close to such beautiful beaches! Good luck with the surfing..I bet it's tough- I 've never tried. Remember the movie Blue Crush..? That will be you soon :) Happy surfing!
