It’s A Boy!

Hello Taters!

So, WOW! My stats have boomed since yesterday! In case you haven’t noticed, Hello SP is now on Twitter @hellosweettater, and on FB (see the “Like” box in the right column). We are movin’ on up! I have lots of other projects in the works, as well, so stay tuned for more exciting places you can see Hello Sweet Potato.

Anyway, onto today’s topic. A few days ago I told you guys what a crazy, busy weekend I had. Well, here’s the recap! Last weekend I traveled to my hometown to help out with my little brother’s baby shower. He and his lovely girlfriend are expecting their first bouncing baby on September 4th!

We worked ALL day on preparing the food. And was there ever a TON of it!

After preparing all the food, we were completely famished ourselves. So, we had a pizza break.

After our break, the decorations were put into place and everything was ready.

My Mom brought these guys to the party…

And this guy also showed up.

Yes, that would be an elephant on top of a diaper tricycle. What? Don’t act like you’ve never seen this.

Our friend, Judy, made the cutest cake ever! The toys on the cake were my little brother’s when he was a kid.

It was finally time to get the party started.

And what would a party be without gifts and games!

One game involved guessing how many jelly beans were in this ginormous baby bottle. But, I think the count was off, because a few might have disappeared. 🙂

After gifts, games, and great food, it was finally time to clean up and go home. And WHEW, was I ever tired! There was also lots of food left over and most of us were scrambling to divide up the royalties. I made out pretty good with TONS of veggies and fruit, of which I have made good use of over the last week. You will see more of that in this week’s WIAW.

My brother also was trying to find a place to stash stuff, and he just so happened to have a cooler in his jeep that was full of these…

Yea. I don’t think he’s going to be needing those anymore once the baby arrives. Haha!

Hope everyone else has had a great weekend and finding creative ways to make due with this heat! Toodles!

A couple of Q’s:

What’s the most creative game you have ever seen at a baby shower?

What’s your take on baby showers? Love em or hate em?
