Baby Shower Mania

Now that some of the madness has died down, I can finally post about the baby showers that I threw recently. The first one was for my good friend, Rachel. She actually had her little boy, Caleb, a few days ago. Unfortunately, he has been in the NICU and I am not sure how he is doing:( I am sure that things will turn out ok, it is just so sad when they come into this world sick. Her shower was really small, but perfect. It was so nice to catch up with friends. Here is the mommy to be:
She was taking the top of this darling cake home to snack on later.
Oh I wish I were so talented... Nope didn't make the cake, in case you missed my last claim for cake decorating, check out this post. One of these days, I will suprise you and do a great job decorating a cake. I did however make this cake:
We had some yummy food too!
I never got a picture of the clothes line with all the clothes on it. Not sure why I dropped the ball on that, but here it is half way done:
Here are the guests:
It was such a fun night and I am so glad that I got to throw it for Rachel. I hope her little boy gets to go home soon!

The second shower was last week and it was for my sister in law, AmyLyn.
Some yummy cupcakes that fell victim to my dessert decorating curse. Luckily, my sister's husband fixed the frosting before anyone saw them. Thanks Rich!
The best lemonade EVER!
The food. Oh what I would do for another one of these chicken salad sandwiches.
Here is another diaper cake that I made.
The favors:
Another clothes line that I messed the picture up on. This one at least had the clothes, but I couldn't get a decent picture of it with the windows. Oh well, I tried.
Finally, here are the guests:

Phew! That is a lot of pictures! It was so much fun to throw this shower for AmyLyn. I am so excited to meet Easton! He is going to be such a doll and all this baby talk is making me baby hungry! Well, almost :)
