This weekend, my sister, and Tim's sister and mom, threw us a baby shower! Our family and friends came from far and wide for the occasion. It was fun to finally have decent space to host people.

|She got several strikes but I think he beat her in the end :)|

The shower was owl themed, inspired by our cute nursery stuff. The food and decorations were amazing! I mean, I knew it was going to be awesome, but truly they exceeded our expectations. We had barbecue, fruit, veggies, cole slaw, pasta salad, and owl cupcakes. I'm hungry now.

|They were almost too cute to eat....almost :)|
|There were three owls that Lailey (our niece) named Bippity, Boppity, and Boo|
There were so many cute details. Ava decided that even Guido needed to get festive for the occasion.
One of the games required everyone to guess how big around I was by cutting a piece of string. No one had a string that was too short. :)
|Nope, too long|
|Tim was pretty far off|
They had to choose pink or blue string depending on whether they thought Sprout was a girl or boy. LOL, we couldn't tell them who was right even if we wanted to. I think about 2/3 voted "boy".

We received some wonderful things for Sprout.

|Charlie and Marilyn|
|Penny, Sarah, Mary (the winner of the string game), and Matthew|
|Our kid is going to look very cute in the clothes we received|
|Perfect fit :)|
|Clothes were pinned to the banner as we opened them|
|He pokes me a lot so I thought I'd get him back|
