Last weekend I traveled to Chicago while my mom, Catherine and I hosted a baby shower for Paula and Baby Strozak. We had a blast planning and decorating and baking. It was so good to spend time with everyone!
The Spread. Yummy!
My mom and I had some fun making our first diaper cake.
My dad refinished the rocking chair for Paula. Excellent work Dad!
My aunt made that quilt for Paula as a surprise. She is so talented!
Check out our handy-work with the cupcakes...Cath and I should open our own shop, right?!
The cool kids - Claire, Cath, Coach, Mom, and Maggie.
Paula, Matt, and Margaret (Matt's sister). Don't mind Matt's shirt...he had been holding his new niece who drooled all over him :).
Chief wanted to be in the picture too.
The dessert spread.
The happy parents-to-be opening their surprise present at the end of the day. It was good for a few laughs.
It was such a fun day and I hope Paula, Matt and Baby S felt loved! I can't wait to meet my little nephew.
The aftermath...Paula is quite the organizer.
