My Mom is an amazing woman. Crazy when it comes to parties, gift buying and grandbabies, but amazing. (She knows this, so dont worry, Im not offending her!)
I absolutely adore her craziness in these things and knew that she would put on a baby shower like
no other when I told her I would be coming home before the baby was born.
We didnt expect to go back to the States before my September due date, but J was assigned a
training slot for instructor school. He was notified two weeks before his leave date. The training just so
happened to be in my home state, so I was super excited to get to go back home for a month while
he trained. This presented the perfect opportunity for a baby shower!
The baby shower was at my parent's house.
Baby M is my parent's first grandchild in fifteen years (I have a 15 y/o nephew) and their first granddaughter.
She is also J's parent's first grandchild altogether.
She is going to be so spoiled!
J's mom flew out to spend the weekend with us and attend the shower. We were so happy she could
make it and have the chance to see me pregnant and feel the baby kick.
My mom went crazy buying presents for Baby M! Most of the shower presents were from her and
there were 30 people in attendance!
J's mom hadnt really bought much up to this point, so when she got to town she also went a bit
crazy buying super cute things for the baby.
We had a great time and I just wish it wouldnt have flown by so quickly!
Ps... My mom should have been a professional event planner- she brainstormed all of this and
did the decorating. It was beautiful!

|Presents! Cake and punch table.|
I LOVE the wreath!
My mom bought it for us and I shipped it back to Germany after the party!
|It's a girl chocolate bars and oreo pops for favors.|
The bear is a Build a Bear from J's mom.
|I made the oreo pops.|
The inspiration came from Pinterest!
It was absolutely delicious and so adorable!
My mom came up with the design and the rain boots are from her.

|The food table|
The inspiration was from Pinterest. It's pink bath water with rubber duckies.
It was very good!
|All put together|
|The present tree|
Mom hung presents from the tree and the guests had to guess how many they thought were on there.
Then I was allowed to "open" it!
|Isnt this the cutest outfit and hat ever?!|
Of course it's from my mom!
