Today we had a baby shower for a sister from church. Before everyone arrived we were sitting in the den with another person who was helping us and we wondered if the guest of honor had even been told about the shower. Sandra hadn't told her, Patti hadn't told her and neither had Bobbi. We were dumbstruck! What if she didn't know?? What would we do?? But in a few minutes the doorbell rang and here came Amy Bartlett with Eun Hee in tow. What a relief!
The shower was like most others - a couple of games. These games were hard tho, and there was the potential of offending either the new mom or the new dad, or both! I think we all felt a little uncomfortable. Then we had to identify nine different kinds of baby food. I don't like shower games!
Bobbi provided the house which is always an ordeal because she works herself into a frenzy with last minute cleaning. Patti and Sandra brought all the food and it was very tasty. Patti also ordered a carrot cake from Costco. She asked them to decorate it for a baby shower and they went to town! It had a large, short-legged, garish yellow stork with pink hair and two eyes on one side of it's head. Then they swirled red, blue, yellow and pink icing loops all over it! It looked as if it came from the Taco Town Panadería. Patti refused to put the cake on the food table because it was so hideous, and she didn't want anyone to know she brought it. Even Sandra said, "It looks like a Mexican cake!" It tasted pretty good tho.
