I had so much fun getting ready for this little mister. I felt great gratitude as my friends and family prepared and planned the most wonderful showers. I actually felt really spoiled! We had just had Christmas, then my birthday, and now showers for the little boy, which pretty much is a shower for me-getting lots of cute stuff to dress my baby in, he won't care as much as I do. As spoiled and funny as I felt, being the center of attention and inviting people to a party that they'll have to bring me a present to, I really enjoyed it. Seeing friends and family was the best part. i sure do have some talented friends and family that know how to throw a good party.
The first shower being with my family in Florida. Man, they did a good job. Very thought out and perfectly involved the entire family (even the boys and kids had to come). The theme was BOOKS. Each family member gave me their favorite kids book, then we even made a family book for the boy where each family member was assigned a page to draw a picture to the rhyme "one, two, buckle my shoe" and then their picture will go on the bottom corner of the page, so this little boy will get to know his family from afar. I loved every bit of this cute shower. And the boy will be much smarter because of it.
MAD LIBS game. The results were hilarious
Next, a shower thrown by two of my favorite people, Becca and Merilee. This was for my dance friends and of coarse the two would add a personal touch- bringing back the creepy naked babies in a bowl of pretzel m&m's, the exact way I told my dance friends this summer. Aren't they the greatest? The food was delicious and the decor sweet as a baby boy.
"the lil mister" shower. The Pendleton's know how to throw a party and won't settle for anything but the best. I enjoyed the company of family and old and new friends. So good to see everyone, specially the ones I hadn't seen for a long time. The whole family helped out, with food, decor, the cute bow tie sugar cookies and chocolate mustaches, and even the little girls right at my side to help open presents and keep the garbage cleared away. Am I spoiled or is the boy? I like to think both of us. With these kind of people around us in life, we're bound to have a good one.
