It's a baby shower!

We had a baby shower for my sister Eileen last Saturday! 
She's due to have a baby girl
on Feb 18th!
I only regret not taking pictures of the prizes I made.  I made some necklaces that I thought were pretty cute, but I never took pictures of them.  Oh well.  I'm sure I'll make more anyway.
Here are some pictures of the day.

Do you like my phone in the picture?
*Side note about this cake*
I was quite prepared making this cake and the day before the shower
I put it in the fridge ...cut and frosted, just not covered with fondant. 
I saw that there was a jar of spaghetti sauce tilting towards the cake and I was worried it would fall on it sometime during the night.  So I moved it. 
As I moved the jar, a two liter bottle of lemonade rolled
and fell right on my cake. 
It was smashed!
I pulled the cake out and it was unrepairable.
It was 10:00pm and I ran to the store to grab two more boxes of cake, more eggs, and more frosting.
My lovely lovely lovely husband Tyler made the two cakes for me
while I finished making the pom pom mobile you can see in the pictures. 
Then, he woke up early Saturday morning and not only did what I had done with the cake before it got ruined the night before, but rolled out the fondant and decorated the whole thing for me
because he knew just how I wanted it!
He is the best!
This is the Bottle Race game.
It's kind of like hot potato and musical chairs mixed.  They passed the bottle around while the music played and once it stopped,whoever had the bottle in their hands had to drink it.

It landed on Heather, but her daughter snatched it and started drinking. 
It was too funny!
Napkins folded like shirts with the fork, pen, and games tucked inside
