SURPRISE . . . What a surprise indeed!

Hey all!  Wow, I sure had a long, busy weekend, but very well spent with family and friends.  As the weeks go by and I'm soon approaching the arrival of Baby #3, life just seems to get busier.  There's so much going on in our family and we've been having to make some major adjustments.  We just take a day at a time and take whatever comes our way.

This past Saturday, I was to attend a gathering with the Tamiko's Creative Team to discuss "business", hangout, and eat.  What I didn't know was that the "business" portion was actually a SURPRISE BABY SHOWER!  OMGoodness!  The girls really blew me away . . . here are some pictures of the day.

Michelle of Mushi's Creative Inspirations made these favors.  She made chocolate covered Oreos and they were yummy!  :)  Michelle even made some with zoo animals on them!  Thank you so much!

Joy of A Place To Be Me put together this Diaper Cake.  I can't believe how much cuteness oozes out of this cake and can't bring myself to take it apart.  Thank you Joy for hosting the SURPRISE Shower at your house and for organizing this special day!  BIG HUGS 2 U!

The generosity and kindness my creative buddies have shown me has literally knocked me off my feet.  Look at all the wonderful gifts Baby Boy is receiving.  Not only that, he's receiving so much LUV from all his aunties!  :)  Thank you ladies for all you've done to pull this off and for the special gifts and cards I will forever cherish. 

Okay, in honor of me and me trying to stay anonymous, the girls and I had to do the One-Eyed-Willy!  We had so much fun talking, laughing, eating, playing games (woohoo Kyoko!  2 thighs!  hee, hee), and just enjoying each others company. 

In all seriousness, here's a group shot of the Creative Team.  Missing from the party was our "BOSS", Tamiko.  Missed you girlfriend! 

How do I put it into words the feelings I have inside for these wonderful bunch of ladies?  I can't, but you can sure imagine it!  I've met most through the world of blogging and yet it amazes me at how our passion for crafting has lead to such personal friendships.  Luv you all!  I am truly BLESSED!  :)
