Diaper Shower

I am so lucky to have a friend here in Sidney like Alison! She's made the transition here so bearable. She threw me a baby shower yesterday evening, inviting our ward members. The theme was diapers and as you can see we were greatly blessed. I won't need to get diapers for a while. Alison held the shower at her home. The sisters provided yummy treats to eat. Sister Hackleman even made a super cute baby cake out of fondant. We played two games: guess my due date/time and the size/weight of the baby and a memory game. Alison made grape salsa that was delicious. I will post the recipe. Amelia even got a little dolly and a tiny tea set. This morning she had her three mimi's lined up feeding them out of the tiny cups. She was so dainty. Thank you everyone for the wonderful evening.

Grape Salsa
2 cups coarsely chopped grapes
1/2 cup green onions and diced anaheim chilies (or canned)

1/2 t salt
