A Storybook Baby Shower

Last week we had a sisters' baby shower for Mariah who is due at the end of November and MaryRuth who is due in January. We kept it small and simple, which was ultimately really nice. Here are the highlights:

The mamas to be:
The storybook theme:

We ate stew, rolls, pumpkin bread, cupcakes, chocolate macadamia clusters, and punch while we played games and chatted. Everyone took a children's book quiz (which Carrie and Alicia dominated), and got to be a storybook character for the evening. Then we talked and laughed about girl things.

Everyone brought a favorite children's book or other gift for the new babies to be. It was perfect that we had two of everything, and fun presents for both a boy and a girl:
Everybody took home one of my own favorite children's books, a bookmark, bookworms, and a pencil:
The guests:
Mary, Alicia, Emma, Ruthie, Riah, Carrie, and Hazel.

Short and sweet. Just like this post. 11/2
