Christmas Themed Baby Shower!

Happy Tuesday!

I can’t believe that at the end of next week, it’ll be November!  This whole year seems to have flown by (although I certainly didn’t think that at the time) and now I’m hoping the next 8.5 weeks fly by too #letsmeetBabyG

This past weekend was our last weekend of plans and traveling since June so from here on out, it’s home home and more home time for weekends!

Such cute gifts for the games too!!

We were in Oshkosh this last weekend with  my in-laws for my final Baby Shower before Baby G arrives!

My sisters-in-law and mother-in-law!

I wasn’t given any details and not even an invite so I had no clue what to expect but seriously… it was SUCH a cute shower!  First of all, it was at a place called Caramel Crisp Corner which was a gift shop/gourmet popcorn cafe/ice cream candy shop and it was SO cute!

It was Christmas themed and it even snowed a bit in the morning 🙂 Right up my alley for the holidays! The theme was in part because I love mildly obsessed with Christmas and also because of Baby G’s due date!

There were Christmas trees, Christmas signs and even Christmas garland with lights!

They served grilled cheeses and cups of cheddar broccoli soup (I had chicken dumpling though since I can’t do broccoli since being pregnant) which was so good! Oh yeah.. and there was buttered and cheesy popcorn for everyone.. um yum!

We chatted while we ate and then played a few games; one, guess the baby! They had pictures of me, my siblings and Logan and his on a board and you had to guess who was who.  They also threw in a few non-family members that people had to guess to… I will say, I guessed Rickie Fowler and Reese Witherspoon pretty quick… well Rickie pretty quickly!

I’ve been SO excited to start new traditions with Baby G even before Baby G was inside me! I can’t wait to read this book every year on Christmas Eve 🙂

Next game was “What did Logan pack in Kristi’s Hospital Bag?”.

My sister and niece were able to make it – which is always a good time to have some family from each side! 🙂

I had never heard of this game before (though i’m sure you have!) and the night after my shower in town here, Logan’s mom and sister told Logan the following scenario – Kristi just went into labor and needs to get to the hospital ASAP.  She has not packed anything – you have 3 minutes to pack her hospital bag… what do you pack?

It was funny to see what he picked!! #threelillypulitzertops

For the game, they listed a bunch of things and said to pick the 5 things he put in my hospital bag.  It was fun to see what people thought he’d pack – was he sensible or had no idea?!

Logan stopped by the shower about an hour in and helped me open gifts which was really nice.  And it always helps take the spotlight off of just me while opening gifts (it’s always SO awkward! Anyone else?!).

Logan’s aunt made us the most beautiful baby blanket to match the wallpaper in Baby’s room! It’s literally perfect and looks great on the crib right now 🙂

Everyone brought a book for Baby G (which is something I always love – in lieu of a card bringing a book and writing to Baby a sweet message) and I can’t wait to read them to Baby G when he/she gets here! We started to read to Baby so maybe we’ll read a few of those before he/she comes! My sweet SIL Delaney wrote the SWEETEST note to Baby in her book “God Gave Us You” and I literally bawl tear up every time I read it!

Everyone got to take a favor (or two) from Bath & Body Works and if you know me, I’m all about giving away favors for ANY party so I loved this! 🙂

Oh yeah.. and for dessert?! Actual Christmas sugar cookie cut outs – Christmas trees and all!

It was all so thoughtful and sweet!

Baby G sure is loved 🙂

    I have been waiting to read this until I could sit at my computer and soak in alllll the Christmas and baby shower fun. You are so gorgeous with your baby bump! Rocking the cream sweater and boots. I admired every photo. And the shower…o’ holy night I love the theme! How sweet of them to surprise you with the theme and the most perfect idea! The books will be a treasured, sentimental keepsake for sure. (And I HATE opening gifts in front of anyone – introvert shyness on high alert with that!)
