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.
