Well I had another great baby shower this past weekend. This time it was in Minneapolis. Penny and Jeanne Boyle hosted the shower and all I can say is that I am so lucky to these two wonderful women in my life. The shower was warm and fun and over before I wanted it to be. Jeanne snapped individual photos of me and each person at the shower. She then combined these photos with "love notes to Fay" that each woman wrote and presented me with a scrapbook of the shower the very next day. I was a little speechless. I had so much fun with my high school friends, my family, Ryan's family and many more friends I've known for years.
One special treat was to see my aunt Signe and cousin Jackie whom I don't think I've seen in 10 years time. We didn't have nearly enough time to catch up, but it was wonderful to see them at last.
Instead of the dreaded baby showers games involving dress up or messy crafts, Jeanne gave everyone an opportunity to show off their baby knowledge. I now know who I should turn to when I have new mother questions. Karin was able to name 52 baby items, some I'm sure I've never heard of.
