2014 is a pretty exciting year for me. Not only is one of my oldest friends getting married, but I have a year of new arrivals.
With one of my best friends expecting very soon, we held a surprise baby shower for her at the weekend.
Giggling and whispering, we all hid waiting for our mummy to be to arrive, surprising her when she walked in (in a calming a way as possible, we didn’t want to start the labour!)
Now you may wonder why I have titled this post ‘A foxy baby shower’. Well our lovely Stephy has a couple of foxy baby items in her nursery, so we ran with that. I even made some foxy cookies (recipe here).
The talented Victoria (also a mummy to be) made some exiting treats for the day too.
After filling our tummies with treats, cups of tea & fizz it was time for presents. We got Stephy to sit down ready to begin (doesn’t our mummy to be look fabulous!)
We even had a little helper for the presents in the form of Stephy’s niece.
We had lot’s of happy tears.
After lot’s of lovely presents, it was time for games, and what a selection we had….thanks to our head of games, Miss Smith 😉
From ‘Guess the size of the bump’
‘Guess the baby picture’ – we all had to take a baby picture and guess who was who. Guess who this cheeky little monkey is?
To ‘Guess the chocolate’ – we melted different chocolates into new born nappies and people had to guess through smell. It was pretty funny watching people smell nappies!
And finally, ‘Guess the baby food’ – this was a tough one. They have Caribbean style pork in baby food form!
What a lovely day with fabulous friends. I just can’t wait for a new member of our group to arrive. Hurry up baby Cartmell, I want to meet you!
