My mom and sister hosted a baby shower in my honor this past weekend at my Mom and Dad’s house in Sauk Rapids. Guests included friends and neighbors, grandmas, aunts, cousins, and some of my soon to be Breidenbach family who traveled over two hours to be there. Tony came with to deliver the croissants he made for the shower and I had promised him some future father in law time in exchange. Sadly my dad had to be on the road most of the afternoon helping his sister move out of her apartment so Tony was stuck with me and a house full of women all afternoon. A bit nerve racking at first I am sure, not to mention disappointing, but he was very charming and I appreciated his company throughout the day.
Like any typical baby shower there were games, there were prizes, there were gifts, and there was great food!
Grandma Idey won the “How much do you know about Katelyn, Tony and Baby” game (my mom supplied fabulous prizes):
People took a guess at how big around my belly is and Tony did the measuring:
Some of my old neighborhood friends came:
A great little thing my mom threw together (olives, tomato, basil and fresh mozzarella):

Some more guests (Look at that happy Grandma):
Tony, excited soon to be daddy:
A happy ending, cupcakes that we had to paint half blue so not to assume the gender of the baby:
Now we wait … 4 MORE WEEKS!
