a suessical baby shower

While I was going through the pictures of last nights baby shower, I noticed that since starting this little blog I have changed the way I take pictures.   Before I used to take pictures of the people and places that were in my life but now I concentrate on caprturing little details as well.  I will remember the big things but it is the little details that often mean so much but are forgotten.  I love that I have this space to chronical our memories and I love even more that I can share our life with all of you.

This baby shower is actually the first of two showers that are happening 7 days apart from each other.  This first shower was meant to share with Alex and Lewis’ coworkers.   Alexandra had intended on the whole party happening outside in the barn but it was so hot that an hour into the party, all of the icing on the cupcakes completely melted (that is what happens to real icing made from butter and not shortening by the way) and the cake was starting to suffer as well.  The people weren’t doing much better and so we moved it inside.

When the last person left, we collapsed on the couch and everyone ate party leftovers for dinner.  Tomorrow, I start preparing for this Sundays baby shower for family and church friends.  Another cake to make and more decorations… I will be thinking of baby Lewis the whole time.

    Wow, this looks awesome. I can't even say which I like best. Did you draw your own tree for the family tree or was it a print?

      No, acutally, Alexandra found a printable one on line. Saved me a lot of time on drawing 🙂
