Baby shower day

Hi I am back with pictures from the actual baby shower , we had it at the mom-to-be's house, since my house is too small for such a crowd mashallah.

I went there with my cousin from the afternoon and started putting things together, some pictures of the decorations..

 The prizes/favors table.. looked yummy with all the pink ;)

We played a few fun games and gave some prizes..
 the "dress the baby monkeys" was the funniest game, we gave the only two girls a chance to play and it was fun to cheer and watch
 we had a go at the game while blindfolded and that what the babies looked like after wards!

Then had dinner, everyone brought something and I got the cake and cupcakes..

And the diaper cakes, but it's not meant to be eaten :P ( I did one , mom the other )

All in all it was a great day 7amdillah..

It's been another long time.... Happy everything :D

Well sincs tha last time Eid has come and gone, so Happy Eid, and it was 7amdillah, we had some moments of sadness for sure, my late uncle (allah yir7amu) has left many memories for us, he was there in our lives strongly and everything reminded us of him.

But we still managed to make it a good Eid for the kids at least, and yes it's Allah's Eid so we have to celebrate even if sad.

I went to Jeddah in Ramadhan to visit my dad and family and friends there, spent two weeks and it was a nice thing to do , see loved ones and change scenes.

Eid was spent visiting each others, exchanging gifts, and playing some fun games my auntie and uncle prepared for us along with gift certificates as prizes.
some of the Eid gifts..
 Lovely Eid kids mashallah..
 Yummy Eid food ..
 Two lovely growing up fast girls mashallah..
 Praying 3asor on third day of ramadan , mashallah..

Then i spent a lot of times .. well two weeks to be precise :P preparing for my cousin's wife (is there a shorter name for that? I can always call her my friend or sister cuz she is like that ) baby shower. I was hosting it , but in her house since mine can't accomodate 19 ladies and 11 kids, at least that was the number of people who were supposed to show up. not all did.

So as you might notice, I love thinking of things for themed parties, and this theme was pink and brown with rubber duckies. I love rubber duckies..:D

I'll  leave you with some of the pictures of the things I made,
