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 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

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 :(

jenna made these homemade peppermint patties, tinted blue and dipped in delicious chocolate.  i found little glassine bags from 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!
