Bailey's baby shower

On Sunday afternoon we had a Baby shower for Valerie and Bailey. Grandpa got to hold Bailey before he got sent downstairs to watch all the boys for a few hours. He was thrilled about that job!! LOL
A nice diaper cake: My sister made her a fireman quilt. She made one for Zac when he was born and Valerie used it some but she wanted to use it more for Bailey, so Valerie wanted Linda to make Zac a different quilt. He loves Fireman so hence the fireman quilt. It is so cute and Valerie loved it. As soon as Zac came upstairs after the shower, he laid on it and rolled up in it. He has used it every night since then. It has fire hose, Dalmatian dog, firetruck, ladder, fire tank, and several other fireman tools on it. It turned out GREAT!!
She got a TON of clothes and items that she needed. Everyone had a good time. I did make something for a keepsake for Bailey. I had seen this for a wedding gift. I drew a tree and put Bailey's picture in the heart in the middle and had everyone leave their finger print on the tree. I thought that this was perfect since it was fall time and leaves are falling plus they are colors that are in Bailey and Zacs room. They even enjoyed making their print. I had another sheet that goes behind the picture where they left their finger print again and then they signed their name next to their fingerprint, so that Valerie knows who was there and who's finger print was who's!!
