We were wanting to do something different and wanted to incorporate the idea that we don't know what she was having. We were going to do a pink and blue cake with a big question mark until I saw the zebra themed shower that Julie had done. It was perfect especially if you know Rachel...she is not your typical baby pastel mommy!
This is not a good picture of the invitations but they read:
Rachel is due
The Connor house could soon be a zoo
Come help us celebrate upcoming pink or blue
Please bring something for mommy and baby too!!!
Here are a few of the decorations and some of her gifts.
A very surprised Rachel!! This is my favorite Rachel face:)
Reading our prediction cards. We wrote on pink or blue cards whether we thought she was having a girl or boy, arrival date and time, height and weight and a piece of advice for her or a message for baby. It was a lot of fun seeing what everyone predicted and it will be interesting to see who will be right!
I remembered to get a picture after everyone else had left so here are just a few of us.
Hudson came once everyone had left so I had to get a picture of the two of them. We can not wait to see whether Hudson will be getting a new best friend or a new little girlfriend (that is if Rachel and I have anything to do with it). We are all so thankful that God answers prayers and that Rachel is finally going to be a mommy!! We can not wait to meet baby "C" and can finally give this sweet baby a name:)
