Emily & Sion's Shower

On Saturday we had a baby shower for Emily and Sion, who are due with their first baby in just a few weeks!!  They are having a little girl, and Lael and I had quite a grand time decorating my house with pink everywhere. :)

We played the game where everyone had to taste the baby food and guess its flavor.  Dave won. :)

The diaper cake Lael and I made.  I was pretty proud of it. :)

We played a game where everyone had to cut a piece of yarn to the length that they thought would fit perfectly around Emily's belly.  As you can see below, Kelly overestimated a bit.  In fact, both he and Dave...and a lot of inside his piece of yarn.

Emily holding Kelly's yarn around her waist.  Clearly, a bit of an overestimate. :)

That evening, a few of us went to Sion and Emily's house to eat some homemade pizza, drink some warm fall drinks, carve pumpkins, and bake pumpkin seeds.  It was a nice time. I felt festive. :)

Me and Kelly gutting the pumkins. (I actually enjoy gutting the pumpkin more than carving that weird???) Haha we never finished carving them...we got too distracted by the warm drinks and baking pumpkin seeds. So Dave and I will have to finish our pumpkin another night. :)


  1. That looks like alot of fun! I love baby showers!

  2. What fun! The diaper cake looks fantastic!

  3. Your blog is super cute!

    I love gutting pumpkins. And I like eating the baked pumpkin seeds!

  4. Baby shower games are awesome! We had none at mine, but I hope I get to plan one some day with lots of games... and decorating onsies, since it's obvious that i love doing that.
