A Boy or Girl?

This past weekend, one of my good friends from college, Emily, had a baby shower. Her shower was so much fun ... it was like a little mini reuion with my 2004 Meredith Angels! My college rooomie, Dianna, and another friend from college, Sarah, threw the shower for Emily and asked me to make a cake. This cake was super duper special because it revealed the sex of Em's little one. I must admit, I felt special that I was able to find out what she was having before everyone else.  The shower had a book theme and everyone was asked to bring their favorite book from growing up as a gift. Dianna and Sarah asked me to make a book cake with the "What to Expect When you are Expecting" title. Here are a few pics from the shower and the cake...

Emily and I before the big suprise cutting!

The pretty table...don't you love the Mother Goose book? Aww memories...

Is it blue or pink???

And it's a boy!!

I thought this present was adorable! Paige made it out of diapers and stuck several mini Dr. Suess books in it. I love the Cat and the Hat on the top.
