  • Our book club last month hosted a surprise baby shower for Kirsten. The theme? Books of course! Every girl in book club brought one of their favorite childhood books to give her.

  • Natalie coordinated getting a Banner made out of authentic old fashioned library check-out cards. Studio 1621 (who Natalie used to make the banner for my birthday last year) made this fabulous banner.

  • All the desserts, candy, and food was based on a book. One of my all time favs....swedish fish for Dr. Seuss's One Fish, Two Fish, Three, Four, Five Fish.

  • Even Kirsten's mom and dad got in on the surprise. Kirsten's mom and I had secretly planned since her first shower about her making cookies. If you Give a Mouse a Cookie was the inspiration and Kirsten's dad MADE the cookie cut-out and they decorated the sugar cookies to match perfectly! The oatmeal chocolate cookies were a HUGE hit too!

  • And since this is the first time ever that our entire book club was in attendance, we had to take a group photo of all 11 girls. Though I'm not sure how we ever made the pregnant lady be the one to kneel on the ground?! :-)
