I helped my mom host a bridal shower for Ciara. It turned out great, and we had a lot of fun. In case you were wondering WHY you shouldn't let your kids "help out" (even if it's at the "end" of the shower):
1) Miles got chocolate cake everywhere.
2) Emmett decided to pull the pillows off the couch and jump on them.
3) Tyson decided to bounce a volleyball down the stairs. We were 3 for 3! And yes, Grandma Tenney, "When you have kids, that's all you've got!" Stop laughing at us from Heaven, okay?
(No picture was captured--sorry, I needed both my hands to stop the flying object from breaking anything.)
My mom managed to make the most adorable OWL CAKE! Ciara loves owls, and my mom spotted a cake book recipe that inspired the theme of the shower.
We did manage to play "Pin the Mustache on Wes"....
And CIARA won the game without even cheating! What a cute couple.
