A Dr. Seuss Baby Shower

A day full of love, laughter, and tears as we celebrated the soon to be birth of Jaqueline Rae with a wonderful Dr. Seuss themed baby shower! We shed the tears of happiness along with tears of joy as we truly wish my Grandmother, Jaqueline (Jackie) Faasse could be sharing these moments with us, however we know she is in heaven with Papa smiling down on us on this very special day.

The invitations went out and were a huge hit! We found a great design thanks to
We also found a menu online and just adjusted it for our food items.

Adorable sign that we stuck out in front of the house

The tables were decorated with cute little pots of gerber daisies, homemade bookmarks with Dr. Seuss quotes, and lots of Dr. Seuss primary colors!

Books and Stuffed animals were placed around the room and were prizes that were given to Tara.

As people started rolling in, so did the gifts! We have a little wrapping addiction in my family.....and here are just a few....

Once people arrived, we had them start taking their picture with this fun little set-up.
Here is the lady of the hour....

And how appropriate to have the twins holding the "thing 1 and thing 2" sign...

We started out the shower with the infamous candy bar in the diaper game. Here Tara shows off the Nestle Crunch:

Aunt Fran's face is priceless

Karly took it a step further...which helped her in the end because she won!!

Time for gifts! This one is made by Tara's mother in law....just adorable!

Having a girl means.....cute little pink things!

Every new mom understands the importance of a bouncer when life gets busy!

Before having lunch, Tara's Dad, my Uncle Dann, wrote a sweet prayer to go with our theme.

Lunch was a creamy tomato basil soup with homemade croutons and a wonderful salad!

Dessert was beyond delicious! We ordered the Cat's Meow from Food Dance, one of my favorite restaurants in Kalamazoo.

We can't forget the cute Cat in the Hat cookies that we put in everyone's goodie bags to take home!
Tara recieved all sorts of wonderful gifts for Baby Jaqueline! Her husband Adam stopped by and couldn't believe the couch full of stuff!!

So excited for Baby Jaqueline to arrive in early April (or maybe even end of March!!)
