THE CAKE....

It is a well known fact around the family that I love me a Costco cake. My SIL, Michelle, is well aware of this fact. I have been known to drive 40 miles one directions to one of children's birthday because of the temptation of this Costco cake.... I think frosting is my favorite food right now...



This block of delectable delicious decadence is chocolate FROSTING, yellow cake and a strawberry cream center.







Michelle tried to personalize it especially for Tate transforming the BLOND princess for this Asian one. We had a laugh when we saw that princess' need to have curly hair and what is up with that black mouth???




The theme of the shower was all about China adoption so of course there were plenty of Ladybug sightings, including on the cake.



This was to represent when the stork is flying. It was so fun that Michelle was able to take a Costco cake and work within the confines to create this special cake.


CHINA FLAG. ASIAN PRINCESS. LADYBUG. STORK.

I know, I know, I keep checking and finally the post is there! Every single moment priceless! The place card, what do I say except cold chills ran through me when I saw yours! Mom, yep, that's you! Your family made every single moment so special. Not only is Tate going to have the most amazing Mom but an incredible loving family (by the way, she will love those trips to Florida to visit her aunt!) You know I think Tate would like to come to Kentucky and see the horses too (hint, hint).

BEAUTIFUL shower-amazing ladybugs all over! The cake is so special and those gifts are awesome! Tate's room really is such a lovely blue... but I digress...
Love the line about you not finding your nametag. Wait til you try calling yourself mama/mommy to Tate. It's the strangest yet loveliest thing to say!
COME ON STORK!!!!!
