Baby Shower #2 {Couples Shower}

This weekend some of our best friends threw us a couples shower.  I've never had a couples shower before..but it was so much fun!  My best friends Lauren and Carrie hosted the shower and everything was perfect!  They made a yummy mexican meal along with delicious oreo balls and cupcakes.  I definitely ate way too much!  The decorations were SUPER cute!  Here are a couple of pictures...

  After dinner we played a funny and interesting game.  Carrie and Lauren gave every couple a HUGE (too big if you ask me! :)) picture of Duane and I.  Everyone had to cute out different features (ears, nose, eyes, mouth, etc.) that they thought Baby G would have.  Some of the outcomes were very interesting!  I hope Baby G doesn't end up looking like these pictures!

After the game (and lots of worry that Baby G will look like those pictures) we opened presents.  Once again we were so blessed by everyones generosity.  When Lauren and Carrie sent out the invitations, they gave the girls a letter and asked that all of their gifts start with that letter.  I thought this was so creative and it was fun to see what people found to go with their letters.  The guys were asked to bring different sizes of diapers.  We got lots of diapers which will be SO useful in our near future!

After presents we had dessert and sat and talked.  I'm so glad lots of our close friends could come to celebrate our sweet baby boy!  Baby G is already SO loved!

Photobucket
{Paula (Lauren's step-mother-in-law) and I.  She is pregnant with identical twin boys.  She will most likely have them about the same time I have Baby G, even though she's a few weeks behind me.  There were FOUR pregnant ladies at this shower!  Baby G will have lots of friends!}
