A baby girl shower.....loving all the PINK!

Sorry for the long silence at My house of Giggles! Dustin was away all last week, and I was somewhat out of control! The boys and I went to stay with my lovely sister, Shannon, who was so helpful at providing backup....thank goodness for sisters!! (it so happens that my parents were away at the same time as my husband!) *cue small panic attack here*.

Anyways....we survived.

Needless to say, I have a very great respect for all you single mommas out there.....and for those of you whose husbands are away a are SUPERMOMS! 


Now....onto the baby shower....

My beautiful sister-in-law Dayna and I planned an intimate little  baby shower for our friend Christa, and her gorgeous new baby girl. 

It was a somewhat impromptu event, but we wanted it to be special, so we had some fun with the girly details :)

I made some tulle pompoms to hang in the window......don't they look like pretty little ballerinas? 

Dayna is so amazing.....she made this delicious (and I mean DElicious!) cake......all while looking after her little man Fenton, who is only 3 months! It's covered in ganache and so yummy. 

She left it in my fridge, and needless to say, I've put a huge dent in it. 

C'mon....a girl can't deal with that kind of temptation!

The little 3-tiered dessert stand was one of my recent projects....soon to be available in my "almost-ready-to-open" Etsy store! :) (more on this later)

The adorable baby girl of honour.....Kalli!

Christine and Shannon with little Kalli...

And the beautiful momma :) 
 this little Kalli is a DREAM baby........her mom just lies her down on the floor, to open presents....and she simply falls asleep. On her own. Just lying there.

How come my boys would never do that? 

And here's my gorgeous sister-in-law and cutie-patoutie little nephew Fenton. Isn't he a doll? 

And he gives the best snuggles :)

Me and my boys...

I promise more posts very soon.....I've been working on lots of little projects and I can't wait to share them :)

    My hubby use to travel 50% of the month and I was alone with three kids for alot - I too admire single moms- it isn't easy!
