Leighton was the surprise...
Kristen's friends, Manina, Vicky and I conspired to throw a shower for Kristen. The kids needed a new camera so we shopped for that. Lots of friends went in on that gift and there were still tons of gifts to open. The shower was to have been a surprise for the kids but their newest kid surprised us all coming three weeks early. We offered to defer the date but the kids said they could make it ok...
The top gift selection is from my oldest pal, Jo in St. Louis. These outfits are darling and she even put in a couple of toys for our boys.
The second gift was from a wonderful woman I met through ACOT, Kara Clark. She sent this amazing package of goodies for Leighton. The darling little shoes were the show stopper.
E fixed a crab mousse and a goat cheese log with honey , sesame seeds and raspberries, Vicky a veggie tray, Manina crackers and cheese and some crostini. I ordered the cake from Sweet Bay and it turned out perfect. I had taken one of the napkins Manina had for the shower and the decorator took it from there. Manina did a wonderful job with the decorations, the phone calls and invites and made the event run so smoothly.
And the guest of honor slept through it all!
