Carlotta made the cake and had the shower at her lovely house.
I was in charge of games and bringing some food (fruit salad and edamame to go with cucumber sandwiches, cheese, crackers, and a veggie tray). I made a packet of games and things in the shape of a bib (shown on the "baby" above) for each person. Below is what the packet actually consisted of.

Ten little fingers, ten little toes
It’s amazing how fast a baby grows.
Still in the womb and out of our sight
Yet we know that he’s growing every day and at night.
We listen to progress and what Krissy’s going through
We offer our help, anything we can do.
While she hears a sound and Krissy feels him kick
She tries to explain it, but it is hard to mimic.
So we anxiously await for the day to draw near
When at last we’ll meet Ethan, so precious and dear.
Soon he will know what life’s all about
He will laugh, he will play; he will cry, there’s no doubt.
We will watch him start crawling and then start to walk
And more excitement will come as he learns how to talk.
But for now we must wait, it’s all we can do
Until the time comes when we hear his first coo.
Baby Ethan is on the way
Let’s start celebrating today!
We are glad you are here to share a few hours.
What fun we have at Krissy’s Baby Shower!

I'm sorry I couldn't be here,
but I'm not quite ready yet.
I'm painting my eyes, hair and cheeks
and soon I'll be all set.
I'm sending this little message
to convey to you this thought.
The stork will soon have left me
to use the gifts you've brought.
Thanks for the lovely welcome
you have given me today.
And when you see the stork fly by
you'll know I've come to stay.
I thank you from my tiny heart
for the lovely gifts you share.
Soon I'll be on my way home
to show you how much I care.
There's Krissy in the green!
We also played "Dress Baby," during which two teams dressed a player as a baby using two rolls of toilet paper. Krissy got to sit out for this one and be the judge.
The one on the left won. I was amazed how well both teams did with this silly task. It was excellent!
Then everyone got to take a fresh cinnamon roll home as a party favor. (My mother and I made these, and we ate quite a few!)
