Thanks to Mystique's realtor we were able to surprise Mystique with her baby shower. She had to convince Mystique to come and talk about what they might need to do to help sell the house. She was totally surprise when she came in and found us there.
Eric joined in with the fun, and Ali kept track of who gave her the gifts.
I made her a sock monkey.
The theme of the party was books. Her Grandmother gave her an old Peter Rabbit book that she had as a child, a special keepsake.
Her Aunt Molly's family went together and gave her a Pack and Play.
A group photo: Larry, Dottie, Courtney, Ali, Eric, Vi, Mystique, Molly and Kathy.
Diane and Mystique taking a selfie. Vi enjoyed looking at all the nice gifts she had received.
Larry and I had fun making the watermelon carriage and baby.
My desert were these cute rattle cookies. They took a little time to ice, but I enjoyed creating every one.
I'm glad Mystique was surprised and enjoyed her shower. Then we had a "shower" for Ali and Larry.
Mystique had nominated them for the ALS ice bucket challenge, so the shower ended with Larry and Ali having a bucket of ice water dumped on them. I think Mystique and Eric enjoyed doing it a little too much! No dry clothes and only a small towel, they were so brave.
