The baby shower is over and it was pleasant success. Much thanks to Jenny, April, Kristen & Heather for making is a terrific event.
Many people showed with whom I was excited to see,visit and chat. Friends, family.. it was good.
My ex was there with his family. Try as I might to be friendly, I always seem shut out. But, it rolls off. Suzie was there and I didn’t realize who she was at first – until I asked Cas -who is that lady. But Piper (Suzie’s and the ex’s baby) is about the cutest little pixie ever. Missed the uncle though.. Gpa was nice as always.
Friends from the homeschool group were there – oh how nice to see these moms.. with their kids grown up and out of the group. I am looking forward to getting together with them again soon, like the old days of gathering and gabbing and crafting and laughing.
Daniel’s grandma was great – so friendly, funny and just always around. My step-mom and aunt came which tickled me to pieces. My mom, Bob’s mom Dale, and Bob’s dad and gma were there.. friends and ex-coworkers of Cas. And I think I have more pics of Piper and Em with Piper than I do my own kids at the shower.
I didn’t play any games – when they first started I had taken Ry to the potty.. What was great was the “Who knows Cassie Best” game was won by Bob (my hubby, Cas & Em’s stepdad of 12+ years). Now, I won’t lie, even had I played, he’d have beat me. I just didn’t know all the answers.. and some which should have been no-brainers for me, I completely ditz on… but like I said, I didn’t play.
Cas and Daniel opened so many packages and bags, and it seemed every time she opened something, she pulled out another bib, or set of bibs. She got dresses, and bath goodies and a bouncer.. Now, she is stripping all the tags and will get everything washed and ready to wear.
The place the party was held at was a really neat building – an old car dealer place.. very neat inside, a perfect place for a nice shower. Daniel’s sisters Kristen & Heather are both adorable, smile a lot, friendly and I hope to work with them on any future showers… actually, even though they have plenty of family, maybe I’ll just adopt them as my nieces… hmmm…
I ordered the carseat/stroller combo . Still need onesies, sleepers and a few other things – things people thought everyone would get, but instead, only a couple did.
