Baby Shower #1

Owl cake matches Greyson's bedding.

After the party...


  1. That was a bad-ass owl cake! I'm a mama of three. Congrats, and thanks for following Home Girl's Book Blog. :)

  2. There was still cake left over - how restrained of you :)

  3. It was a blast, Chris. I hate baby shower games, but these were good.

    Rachel, isn't it?! We had a bit of a cake catastrophe, though. The owl fell off the top (too heavy and toppled) and took part of the top layer with him. It was torn up in this pic, but we put a pretty blue train of tissue paper under his butt so you can't see the damage. lol

    Jodie, there's not much left now! We gave some away and have been happily munching the rest.

  4. I love baby showers. All those tiny baby things. Looks like you had a great time. Enjoy all the attention now!

  5. You look fabulous and the party looks like it was lots of fun! I love the owl theme. Hope you got lots of goodies!

  6. Oh my gosh that cake is to die, so, so, cute! You look fantastic and it is hard to believe that you are getting ready to have a baby...not that you are supposed to look bad I just remember how big and bloated I looked and felt before I delivered my son!

  7. Chris, I never liked them until I had my own. lol I have a new appreciation now.

    Thanks, Alayne! I love me some owls. Greyson's comforter for his crib has a couple of owls on it, and it's just adorable.

    Thanks, Kathleen! I haven't gained much weight because I was chunky before and my first doc advised me against it. I'm getting pretty round and uncomfy now, but I haven't felt too puffy. Unless I eat salt--then all bets are off. lol

    LOL, Eva. Cute, eh?

  8. Love, love, LOVE the owl cake! Now I want to see Greyson's room! The cuteness!!

    Looks like you had a perfectly kick-ass baby shower. I wish I could have been there!

  9. It looks like you and your friends had a ton of fun! It's hard for me to resist a good piece of cake.

  10. Congrats on your pregnancy!! I somehow missed that before now. :-) I love the owl theme and the name Greyson. :-) My family had a toddler live with us for about 8 months a few years ago and his name was Greyson. He had a wonderful's a good name!

  11. Beautiful pictures! The shower looks like it was a great one!

  12. Owl cake is awesome!Looks like everyone had a great time!

  13. I love that cake! Greyson's room is going to be fabulous. Great color scheme. I'm glad you had a fun time.

  14. Looks like you had a great time. Love the cake!
