Baby Shower

Last weekend I threw a baby shower for my sisters-in-law Rachel and Sarah. I am so excited for them. They are both expecting their first child this year. Finally Parker will have some cousins and they will be around the same age as Tommy. Around 80 people came, which means I had crazy amounts of food to prepare. I thought it was fun and hope Rachel and Sarah had fun too!

So at first, I got all ambitious and wanted to throw the most beautiful magnificent party ever...and then I came back to reality. I remembered that I have a newborn baby and a small budget. But let me tell ya, if I had never had to sleep and had unlimited amounts of money, it would have been the most marvelous baby shower ever seen by man (and woman). So I cut out the fresh flowers and cute party favors and this is what I ended up with:

The guests of honor, Sarah & Rachel

Food, glorious food

Of course, I had to dedicate an entire table to dessert.
Brownies, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, and cheesecake!
It takes a long time to bake hundreds of treats!

Guess the baby game.
Can you guess who A is (the first on the bottom row)?
If you said Katie Holmes, you were right!

Great Grandma and Grandpa Budd with Tommy

Thanks to the guests for all the wonderful gifts!

And another picture of Tommy 'cause he's so darn cute!
