Any Fresh Ideas?

If you've been following my journal, you know I'm about to be a grandma.  ::Basking in the glow of pure joy::  Anywho, the date has been set for Amy's baby shower, and it's been years since I've been to one.  Oh, speaking of Amy, she was just here and tells me baby Dylan has now decided to spend her time standing on Amy's ribs.  Oye!  Ouch!  It hurts just thinking about it.  And she's not sleeping too well lately...in fact...she's reached the point where she's ready for baby to be born.  Remember the 'Friends' episode where Rachel is sitting there on the couch, complaining about being pregnant during the summer?  She looks down at her huge stomach, throws her hands up in the air and in exasperation yells, "Get out!  Get out! Get out!  Get out!"  LOL!  That's pretty much where Amy is now.  She hasn't reached the yelling stage, but me thinks she will be by the time we throw her this shower.

Okay, back to my topic.  Any one have any ideas for games they want to share with me?   Have one so far.  Ask all guests to bring their own baby picture to the party, which will be placed in a basket with all the others.  Then, one by one, the baby photos are pulled out and the guests try to guess who the baby is today.

Come on J-Lander's.  I'd love to hear from you.  I'm meeting with my co-conspirator's next Monday, so if you've got any ideas, feel free to share them.  :)  Okay?

Well I've been to only a few in my life span, but I do remember playing a game called knife and scissor, inwhich the mother to-be steps out of the room, the knife and scissor are placed under a pillow or something of that sort and then shes brought back into the room and sits on one of the pillows. Knife- Boy and Scissor-girl. But I guess this won't work since Amy knows its a boy. Have her feet gotten swollen yet? Ugh! I fear pregnancy!

Hey Dona~

I know a few games.....

1.  Get a roll of toilet paper and each guest tears off the length they believe will fit around Amy's belly.  After everyone has torn theirs off.....then one by one, all the guests get up and put their's around Amy.  Whoever is closest to her 'size' wins....

2.  Get a bunch of baby stuff.... bottle, diaper pin, baby toy, pacifier, Q-tip, etc.... and put them on a tray (get as much as you can), then let everyone see whats on the tray for a minute.  Take it away, and the guests have to write down everything they remember in a certain amount of time.  The one who remembers the most items wins....

3.  Get pink and blue kleenexes and fold them into diaper shapes one for each guest, put a small dab of mustard in one (to represent the dirty diaper), and let the guests choose one.  Whoever gets the 'poopy' diaper wins......

Ok, that's all I can think of right now.  If you need better explanations, email me :)

Hope it's a great time for all and Amy will get her wish soon enough  :)

We don't do baby showers here, so I can't help with the games.  But I wanted to leave a little Yaaay for being a Grandma soon :o)
Lots of baby news in J-land lately, another friend became an Aunt for the first time today!!
