Halloween Baby Shower
This is breaking news to my blog,we are going to become grandparents again very soon!!!! My oldest son Tristan and his girlfriend Marta are having a baby Oct.10 or so. We wanted to throw them a baby shower and since they live with my dad in Chicago we had the shower at grandpa's house.This is the house that I grew up in.It is a Chicago brick bungalow.Most of the city has versions of these homes. The kids decided we should have a Halloween theme since it will be an October baby and Tristan has always loved Halloween(he trick or treated until he was like 18 with his younger brothers,lol)!! So the boys and I made a lot of the decorations and we bought a lot of different items and used some of our Halloween Stash.I bought a blowup Hello Kitty(at the end of the season last Halloween) to put up in the front of the house.We thought it would look cute for the shower day so everyone would know the "party house". The boys and I went the Friday before and cleaned and rearranged my dad's house and decorated.The party was on a Sunday and we went early to finish the prep work.Chicago,Il is about 1 hour and 40 minutes from Kenosha,Wi(depending on traffic).Luckily we arrived on schedule and the party was a success!!! My friend Maureen made the baby shower cake and the boys and I made cupcakes.One thing I have learned is that it is definitely harder to throw a party at someone else house and in another state!!! I am still recouping and it is 4 days later,lol!!! Here are some photos of the party..
