Baby Shower Time!

Don't worry, it's not for me....We threw our friends Robert and Sara a baby shower this weekend and it went much better than expected! It was a coed shower with mostly young male law school students as guests so I wasn't sure what to expect really...We found a good balance between fun baby shower games and presents for the ladies and beer and pizza for the men! 

I made a ton of these tissue paper pom poms and had them hanging all over the house for decorations.

Per request of the new mom, the topic of law school was completely off-limits.

I made these cake balls as favors--they were going to be cake pops--which involves sticking them on lollipop sticks before dunking them in the chocolate coating--but I ran out of momentum....

 The men had a race to see who could drink their beer from a bottle the fastest.  We were going to do two ounces but at the last second someone suggested four--not a good idea....apparently it takes a really long time for adults to drink from a bottle.  Henry would have definitely won had he been able to participate :)  Chris came in second.

 Henry, enjoying the festivities.

We also played guess how big the mom-to-be's belly is.  My estimation was about half an inch off, but in the end was beat by a five year old girl, oh well!  Some of the guesses were ridiculous--mostly from the men, some could even wrap around her belly twice!  I think everyone had a good time and Sara got lots of presents, so all in all it was a great day!
