Baby shower!

Last week I hosted a baby shower for my friend Karen.  The theme was farm/barnyard, which lent itself to a lot of fun in decorating!  I forgot to take pictures of most of the decorations :(, but here are a couple (you can see some in the background of the last two pictures, too)...
A clothesline of farmer-boy clothes...
 ...and some cowboy and farmer boots, too!
There were also stainless-steel buckets with candy, bandannas, picket fences, and John Deere stuff.  We really had fun with it!
Here's the cake:
 Excuse me for a lot of pictures here, but another friend coordinated all of the food, and she came up with the most creative stuff to fit in with the theme -- look at these (read the labels if you can)!
 Thirty weeks and counting...baby Noah will be here before too long...
 ...and we -- all of us! -- can hardly wait!
