Lucy's baby shower is in the books.

I thought it was nice. Lucy thought it was nice. And I don't care what anyone else thought about it. (But they thought it was nice, too.)

We made two different types of fondue. We had a salad. Cream puffs with ice cream and hot fudge for dessert.

Check out those fabulous fondue pots from the '70s! Let me tell you this, friends: wrangling up 8 fondue pots is not an easy task. Between me and my mom and Lucy and my aunts and my grandma, we managed to pull it off.

Lucy was awkward about presents, as expected. When all of the older ladies crowded around the presents, waiting for them to be opened, I had to announce that she wasn't opening anything because she's socially awkward. But I invited everyone to show off their gift to the group if they did so please and some did and some didn't and that seemed to work out just fine.

As we were boxing up decorations, I wondered aloud whose shower the decor would next make an appearance at.

"Hard to say," my mom replied.

She was probably secretly wishing that it would be mine.

I sort of was, too.

Looks absolutely lovely. I love the napkin rings and the banner. Good way to solve the present akwardness as well. :)
