A Baby Shower For Tavein

Tracie and Sabrina gave Tavein a baby shower. I decided to get creative. I made a diaper cake with over 100 diapers, a wreath made of 96 diapers, a chocolate cake with chocolate fondant, and the simplest center pieces.
We pitched a canapy in the backyard and hung decorations. Tracie and Sabrina was in charge of games. They were very creative in their selection and all had fun playing. 

There were many presents and we used a bassinet to hold them. Emma was a great help by giving Tavein the presents to open. There was a homemade quilt, gift certificates for a massage, baby cloths, stuffed animals, books. But the hit of the gifts was two dolls of Jared. One by Tracie and the other sent from Terry. They both have a place of honor in Jaxon's crib since his daddy is away in Afghanistan for the next 7 months. Tavein says that when Jaxon comes one doll will be his and the other will be hers. 

Tavein enjoyed her diaper cake. It had a penguin on the back. Jaxon's grandma Judy painted two wonderful pictures of penguins for his room. I'll post these when I post the new nursery at the new house. The diaper cake represented play time and the diaper wreath contained items for bath time and eating time.

Thanks Tracie and Sabrina for giving her a wonderful shower. It made her feel so special. I sure am lucky to have three great daughters.

A very special occasion! Nice job Tracie, Sabrina and Linda. I'm sure Jaxon will be surrounded by much love!

Thanks for the kind words Mom...we are lucky to have you as our Mom too...we could not have done this one without you. Even though you said you didn't want to do anything for this shower you pretty much did it all; we were just there to assist :-) Thanks for everything!
