About to Pop Baby Shower

Last weekend we headed to Wisconsin to celebrate my SIL and her soon to arrive baby girl!  I'm so excited that the girls will have a cousin on my side of the family, and another girl makes it even more fun!  My SIL is a big popcorn fan, so we decided to go with a Ready to Pop theme.  I made some (really cute if I do say so myself) invitations, sent them to all of my family and was then alerted that I put the date as August 27th not April 27th.  Oops!  I'm going to blame pregnancy brain, and my brain's focus on August, for that one.  The shower was pretty low key overall, but a lot of fun!  It's always nice to see the ladies from my crazy family.  

We set up a mini popcorn bar with a bunch of popcorn seasonings.  I found these cute popcorn bags at the Dollar Tree.  I'll be going back to stock up before our summer movie night!  Little J was super pumped about all of the popcorn.  It's also one of her favorite treats.

Baby girl got so much cute stuff.  Mom played softball for the University of Wisconsin, so there was some Badger gear mixed in, including a little glove and ball.  So cute!

Miss A has been wanting to read to our baby all the time, and was anxiously awaiting a chance to read to her new baby cousin too.  She helped Aunt S speed through the presents so she could finally read the pink book to baby.

Instead of playing any baby shower games, everybody decorated a onsie for baby girl.  My friends did this for my shower when I was pregnant with Miss A, and it was so helpful to have a bunch of extra onsies for her to wear.  I had fabric markers from a previous shower, and checked out some drawing books from the library to help those of us who were a little less artistically inclined.

Before we got back in the car for our drive to Minnesota, we got a picture of the family.  This is my mom, stepdad, brother, SIL, two sisters, husband and kids.  Crazy to think that by the end of the summer there will be two new babies!
