A Baby Shower

One of my very best friends, Kristen is having a baby!  I helped throw her a baby shower Saturday that turned out to be quite a success, if I do say so myself.

On the menu was:
pumpkin bisque soup (amazing!)
spinach salad with dijon vinaigrette
cake balls
pumpkin spice cupcakes
sugar cookies

Traci made the soup and it was so good I'm wishing I had more of it right now!
Traci are you reading this?  I think I need that recipe :)

I asked Kristen to bring baby pictures of her and her husband, Michael.  It was so cute to see them as babies!  They're going to have a gorgeous baby girl, I have no doubts.

I used this printable for everyone to leave wishes for the baby.

Co-host Traci and baby Gabe!

I pretty much sucked at getting good pictures at the shower.  First, because I had a very needy baby in my arms most of the time.  Second, because my camera died a few minutes into the party :(  

 But I was able to capture some baby love between Avery and Hudson.
They are only a few weeks apart!

They were totally holding hands.

Congratulations Kristen and Michael!
