BFES!

Big Fat European Shower...can I just say "holy smokes"!  Almost 50 women gathered to celebrate Alan's upcoming arrival.  It was unbelievable! 
The girls made a diaper cake which was adorable!


A g/f made the cutest cake...


We were SPOILED with gifts.....some came from great surrogacy friends around the world (huge thanks!!!)
We had a large matted picture frame with two ultrasound pictures in it for the guests to sign.  A really nice keepsake!

And of course, a Henna artist!

The little girls all got their names on their hands - most of it had rubbed off onto their clothes within an hour, so cute. I am sure the moms are not too happy with the henna stains on their little dresses.







I opted to have some Hindi script


Any guesses what it says?

And what shower is not complete with the expectant mom having a glass of wine and a good laugh with her sister?

Special thanks to my sister Christine and my g/f Ursula for all your efforts in decorating, planning the games, keeping it organized (well amongst the chaos of 50 women) and all in all generally supporting us like crazy! We love you both!!!

  5. Kerrie, so nice to see you in a photo. I had no idea what you looked like. Love the curls (I have them too) and the glow is fabulous on you. And the bonus of getting to drink wine.

  6. Looks like you guys had a hoot - so wish we could have been there!!! Make sure you share photos when you've unwrapped everything. And what did your henna say? Can't pick it.
