BEST BABY PARTY of ALL TIME!

This past Saturday we had the BEST BABY PARTY of ALL TIME! What is a Baby Party you ask? It's everything opposite of a baby shower. It's not just women but women, men and lots of children! You don't just sit down and stare at me while I open gifts, instead you mingle, play corn hole, drink beer and hang out outside. Instead of cucumber sandwiches without crust you have Mexican food and lots of it. Instead of punch & nuts, you have pink lemonade, wine, and cake that the woman who did your wedding cake made and lots of cupcakes. I knew that I didn't want a baby shower early on. Instead I wanted a true party and celebration with our family and friends to celebrate this gift of a life that we'll be welcoming in July. I'm SO thankful for friends who went above & beyond to make this a truly special occasion. I'm also thankful for friends who love me even though I have become a full fledged baby diva. This party was everything and MORE than I dreamed it to be and it was a ton of fun!

No Craig party can start without a sign from Todd- PAISLEY FEST.

The theme? Cowgirl. The details? INSANE! Bobbie made pink lemonade in mason jars and cutest cupcake holder. Geraldean had the cutest stickers & signs for everything.
