Baby Showers!

My baby sister is having a baby of her own.

I could cry. Wait, I did cry. And cry, and cry, and cry!

But that's OK, I've had seven months to try to be OK with it. And I think I'm doing a great job!

So, my mom, sister and I are throwing her a Baby Shower. It's no thousand dollar soiree, its just a fun, game filled night with snacks and cookies, and cupcakes.

And prizes. Lots and lots of prizes!

Sigh...its all just getting too real for me. Hold on while I wipe my nose. Sniff...

P.S. no matter what she names the baby girl, we'll still call her "noodle" cause we love her already!

Oh you are so so clever with your iced biscuits! (cookies).

I was inspired by your Christmas ones, tried some myself and found that my hand really wasn't as steady as I had hoped!

Those cookies look like heaven -- and so cute! Noodle is going to be one lucky babe to learn from you folks. Have fun at the party!
