What larks...it was a great party. Small but fun. My pregnant friends Miranda and Andrea were guests of honour and our other friend Liz was there - we all met when pregnant for the first time so our kids are all the same ages.
Just for my Brit readers I'll tell you a bit more about the traditional baby shower games we played - the nappies were for a guessing game. I melted 4 different chocolate bars into 4 nappies - the shower guests have to guess which bar it is - by smell...or taste! But no one really tasted them. It looks gross and it's so funny watching people sniffing like mad....
Then we did a similar game with jars of baby food - i covered up the labels and you had to guess what they were - by taste or smell - I remember at my baby shower I refused to taste them - Frank, Andrea's son, was very interested and scoffed most of one jar!
We also played word games - anagrams, guess the baby animal, and then each person had to estimate, with bog roll, the girth of the pregnant ladies - I was close but Rick, Miranda's husband, was spot on for both girls.
Everyone loved the chicken amore (including the kids) and we had lots of cakes and ice creams for the kids.
And the weather was good to us - so we sat in the garden for most of the day.
My feet are killing me - I hardly sat down all day - and I'm really tired. But it was worth it. Hoorah for baby showers.
