Now do you realize the planning that goes into making something a surprise? We had to tell her we are going out so she would get dressed up. We had to say that we were running late for our night out so she would actually come inside the house rather than waiting in the car...we had to tell everyone to park their cars down the street and have them show up 30 mins early...I'm just saying...a lot of preparation to make sure she did not find out!!
So, we kept it small. We invited only a few people who we knew she hangs out with or lives close to, etc. as well as her mom and sisters... so she would not be too overwhelmed. Now...my camera did not take pictures exactly as I took them, there is a delay so I am disappointed I did not get the big "suprise face" but I got pretty cute pics otherwise!!
So here is the story. This is Amber walking right out after we yelled Surprise. She burst into tears (HAPPY, EXCITED tears!). It was actually so sweet.
She was in the bathroom...and took a little coaxing to get out...;)
Here she is wiping away the tears getting ready to come out.
Some of the food. Aren't those plates and cups and napkins so cute?! I love now how baby showers are not all blue for boys and pink for girls, there are fun exciting new patterns and mixing and matching is fun. (can you tell I LOVE helping with baby showers?!)
Okay, okay, enough of the food, I know I am just making your mouth water,
Just having fun talking. Sorry for the lighting in the picture.
The cute mom/lady in waiting if you would...
All the pretty ladies...
So much fun!
I can't believe that Amber actually went for this, but we were pretending she was in labor...and well you get the idea!
