Our Baby Shower Blast!

This post, written by Greg, originally appeared on MommyDaddyBlog.com.

Boogie is most definitely one loved baby! The baby shower we received last weekend very well justifies it! The baby shower was simply amazing! We had a really great turnout. Many people from both Mommy’s family and Daddy’s family showed up, along with many of Mommy’s friends and Daddy’s friends. The food we had was absolutely delicious! It was like a buffet, and everyone made sure they treated it like one! We played many games that some of you who have been to baby showers before may be familiar with: Guess The Size Of Mommy’s Belly, Don’t Cross Your Legs, Don’t Forget About Daddy, Word Scramble, Guess Mommy’s Weight, and How Many Words Can You Come Up With? (not exactly sure if those are the “official” names of the games, but you should be able to pretty much get an idea of what games are being referred to!). And the gifts, let’s just put it this way, because of the baby shower, Boogie is covered until he’s about 20! Ok, that was an exaggeration, but we received lots and LOTS of gifts for Boogie; everything from clothes to cribs, toys to breast feeding kits, and everything in between! We’re pretty sure that Boogie now has more stuff than we have COMBINED! There were cameras flashing everywhere throughout the duration of the shower! It was as if we were surrounded by paparazzi!

So of course, there is no way we are even going to continue on without getting into the pictures! Let us warn you though, there are LOTS of pictures. So you may want to go grab a cup of coffee, take a bathroom break, and call off work for the next few days, because you may be here for a while!

The People!

As stated before, many people from both families and both sets of friends were there; and every single one of them wanted to get in a picture with Mommy and Daddy!

The Food!

Chicken, fish, ham, greens, dressing, lasagna, sweet potatoes, cake, need we say more? Needless to say, everyone grubbed down!

The Games!

What’s a baby shower without games? We played quite a few games including Guess The Size Of Mommy’s Belly, a word scramble, and of course, Don’t Forget About Daddy! Daddy actually suggested bringing in some Xbox 360′s and having everyone play Halo 3, but his idea was promptly turned down by Mommy ;-)

The Gifts!

Gifts galore! It took us HOURS just to get through all of the gifts and to thank everybody! Boogie is going to be one stylin’ little dude!

Well, that about wraps up our baby shower! We definitely had lots of fun and enjoyed ourselves. And we also appreciated the love we received from our family and friends! Our baby shower couldn’t have been any better!

    The shower looks like it was so much fun.
    Why didn’t y’all bring me a plate or at least some cake ? I’m just one state over. :o)
    I’m so glad that you all are blessed with such a loving and supportive family.
    What is the game “Don’t Forget About Daddy ? ”
