you, me & a baby makes three {a ridd baby shower} part 2

part 2:  food, games & favors
i know when i'm planning a shower i love all the ideas i can get for a menu of goodies and snacks. i'm rarely ever cook / fix food {other than cereal} so creating a food plan is a little out of my comfort zone.  cory helped me.  she knows what she's doing.  so in case you are challenged like me...you can steal this menu.  it was yummy.

little turkey & ham sandwiches on hawaiian sweet rolls
veggie platter with ranch dip
chips & dip
bagel dip & bagel cubes
fruit & sweet fruit dip
chocolate covered strawberries & pretzels
cake!

the fun games & activities we did you have likely seen at other showers so i won't go into detail, i'll just share pictures, they tell the story.

but first, these were ruffled notes cards that i made for people to be able to share some love, encouragement or pray for rach, r & e, baby parker or the whole fam.  i didn't read peek at what other people wrote but i hope that rach felt well loved reading them.
now for the games:

i was WAY off :(

favors:
jenna made these homemade peppermint patties, tinted blue and dipped in delicious chocolate.  i found little glassine bags from garnish.com and finished them off in bakers twine & yarn.  i had hoped to make an individual tag for each bag with a thank you on it, but time got away from me.
baby parker...COME ON!  we want to meet you!
