baby shower...snow anyone?

Well, yesterday we had scheduled to have a pretty big baby shower for a girlfriend of mine. There were quite a few people expected (roughly 35 or so adults plus kids) and we had lots of food and tons of cupcakes from this great little place called The Cupcake Shoppe, here in Toronto. Unfortunately yesterday was also the day of one of the biggest snowstorms we've had all winter, and over half of the guests cancelled before 11am. Because a good portion of the food had been catered in, we didn't even have the option of postponing the shower for today...yeah, it's beautiful and sunny outside today, and the roads are completely clear!

But despite the horrendous weather, and the fact that almost everyone cancelled, we had a really great day! It ended up being about 10 really good friends of the parents-to-be, really relaxed and casual...just what the new mommy wanted anyway. She's not a big fan of crowds, and she hates being the center of attention...which is kind of hard considering the party was in her honour and she's nine months pregnant! Less people, meant less people who you don't know to have to entertain. It also meant more space for the kids to run around and play. And the best part of having fewer guests also meant MORE CUPCAKES for those who did show up!!! I'd have to say that the blizzard was a blessing in disguise:) Everyone had a great time, and now the mommy-to-be is even more excited about her little one on the way.
