baby caden awaits!

saturday at 2:00pm, i, along with blue momma, karla maria, and seis, helped co-host a baby sprinkle for our dear friend, yankee belle. it was a gift card sprinkle with her closest friends and family, and we were happy to help her in preparation of baby caden james' upcoming arrival. here's a picture of YB with her hostesses partaking in a celebratory champagne shot before the guests arrived.the spread, cake, mimosas, and punch were delicious. after everyone talked while munching on some food, we played a baby rhyme game. now this was pretty funny. i was shocked at how my mind has seem to forgotten some of the one liners that i have grown up with. like, "rub-a-dub-dub, three men in a tub, and how do you think (fill in the 3 empty spots)..." my response? "they rubbed nubs." sadly, i was wrong. seems the right and appropriate answer was, "they got there." wow, guess i was way off.after laughing at some of the responses, YB started unwrapping her gifts. along with numerous gift cards, she received baby caden's bedding and curtains that the grands had made for him. the theme is sock monkeys and it's super cute. also, poodlehead made an awesome gift for him as well. she walked around throughout birmingham and took pictures of certain letters that spelled out his name. enclosed was a note that revealed where each letter was from. for example, the "c" is from the mcwane center sign, the "a" is from the alabama theatre, so on and so forth. it looks awesome, and i loved the idea.after the presents had been opened, we all joined outside for a big group pic. later, i got some cute ones of lil B wearing her "i'm gonna be a big sister" dress. she is so excited, and i know she is going to make an awesome big sister just by watching her play with the mabster and the grunt. notice how YB is training lil B how to flash the infamous peace signs in the picture. ahhh, like mother, like daughter. congrats again, YB. we can't wait to meet your new little man!!
