~My Beautiful Baby Shower~

Man you've no idea how busy we were leading up to this shower :) Loche turned 8 (i know! 8!!) on the friday b4 the shower! We allowed him to have a few mates over for cake and junk food lol he had 7 mates over they ate and played xbox and played with the 116 nerf bullets! They shot everything and anything lol... Boys will be boys! So his party started at noon and the kids were here till 4:30-5 once they had all left Nathan and i rushed around packed a bag and headed for the train station. We were headed down to Sydney for the night to stay with my best friend and her fiance as the next day i was to attend a big bridal show :) prior to that We headed to the awesome flemmington markets and picked up awesomely fresh fruit and flowers for the baby shower! Needless to say it was a very BUSY day :) i was dead tired but i pushed on! When we were done we headed back to Danielle's house and packed and i mean PACKED their lil car up with all sorts of things for the trip back up the we all managed 2 grown men Danielle and a myself and my big ole pregger belly squished into the car and headed home! We got home unpacked the car and started working out the plan for sunday! Food set up and decorating! I am so grateful to Danielle, Alasdair and my mum.

Here is the spread of food :) We had a few different types of sandwiches that Ally made up, mum turned some of the vanilla cup cakes into butterfly cup cakes(cup tops out cut tops in hlf to form wings add jam to the middle of cup cake and a spoonful of whipped cream then wings reattached!) We had all sorts of fresh fruit (watermelon, strawberries, rock melon, red and green grapes fresh pineapple and mandarins!) My mum made a huge chocolate double layered cake with jam n cream threw the middle of it and then we had all kinds of teas and coffee!
We also had lollies :) jelly babies, and raspberries as well as eclairs!

Here is one of my fav baby shower gifts :) when i seen it at babies r us it was one of the first things i placed on the registry! And i was so excited when i recieved it as i really didnt think anyone would want to spend that much on it :)
