It's Raining Babies!

Tis the season of babies! One of my closest friends Lindsay and my sister from another mister Alana are both expecting within the next three weeks! AND my sister just announced that she is expecting! Yay for babies. My friend Krystal and I hosted a baby shower for our friend Lindsay. Being very nostalgic, we decided on a Beatrix Potter theme! Some of my favourite childhood memories are of my Dad reading those tiny little books to my sister and I.




Krystal was nice enough to offer her house and it was the perfect setting for this special day. We filled Krystal's beautiful home with tulips, cupcakes and candles.




We printed these adorable Peter Cottontail pictures off the Internet, put them in my painted frames from home. We also found these adorable little buckets at Superstore for $2.99.






This adorable onesie that says 'Born 2011' is from Baby H&M! This gift got a lot of Aww's.



Here is the glowing Mommy to be! We are all so excited to meet her little bundle. 3 weeks and counting...

Lovely photos - and what a great idea with the Beatrix Potter theme. I had a Beatrix Potter themed room as a child and I have such fond memories of it.
