Baby Shower

The shower in Baton Rouge was a lot of fun.  My Dad's sisters and my cousins on that side got together to give me and my cousin Lynsey a huge shower.  We estimate there were about 100 people there between the two of us. 
First, the food.  My cousin Eric made gumbo and he also made sushi, something he has become known for.  We also had sandwiches and dips and fruit and veggie trays as well as some cupcakes that were super yum!  My Aunt Linda made these scratch offs as a game that everyone enjoyed! The card had a bottle on it and if you scratched yours and you got milk, you won!  My cousin Andrea made little favors that had chocolate covered pretzels and were just too cute.  Because the shower was for me and Lynsey, my stuff was in pink because we're having a girl and her stuff was all in green because they are choosing to be surprised.  
Jeanne' acted as the photographer for the event, so I have a ton of pictures.  Although, we didn't get pictures of everyone who came.  There were so many ladies, it got overwhelming trying to open gifts and visit with everyone and we forgot to take pictures with everyone.
