Rowan's Baby Shower!

This weekend my sweet friend Jessi threw me a wonderful baby shower for little Rowan.  I was so excited to celebrate this kid.  I looked around all everything blue and boyish and it made me so happy.  Don't get me wrong, I am a girly girl.  I love everything pink and Hello Kitty, but I'm ready to have my world also filled with rocket ships, trucks, dirt and anything else boys like  =)

Jessi planned a "Milk and Cookies" theme which I thought was totally cute. I've never thought of it before, but I'd love to another party with the same theme because it's so much fun.  We had an array of cookies to eat, a beautiful cake and a huge pitcher of milk. Delicious!

Jessi even had cute little treat bags so that the guests could bring home more cookies with them as party favors!  What a great idea!  We have definitely been enjoying some cookies the past few days, there was quite a variety!  Jessi made some butterscotch cookies that were amazing (definitely making those this week!).

We had a nice turn out of guests but these two kids stole the show, Rylie and Caden!  I wish they'd actually play with eachother instead of just waving and smiling at eachother, but hey...maybe that's their game, to be coy?  LOL.  Aren't these two adorable?

We had so much fun with the "How Big is her Belly" game.  Two people actually won with an exact measurement of my belly.  It was amazing how accurate their pieces of yarn fit around my belly perfectly (Julianne and Aunt Reba!).  Then we ate and opened gifts.  I got so many nice things for my boy.  I came home and immediately had to look at everything again.  Here we are playing the game and opening gifts.

It's hard to believe that all the things I opened will be used on MY little boy in a month or so.  He's not a figment of my imagination!  I feel so blessed to have a sweet friend like Jessi throw this shower for Rowan and I.  It was a fun and special day that I'll always remember.  Thanks friend!

Me, Jessi and Caden in all our BLUE  =)
