It’s a Jungle Out There

I can’t help it.  The theme from Monk is running through my head.  Oh, Randy Newman!

Baby showers are always fun projects and this jungle animal themed gathering was no exception. Lions and zebras and monkeys, oh my.  Throw in a few palm trees and ta-da!  I wish you could have seen all the decorations at this shower;  Joanne left no moment to chance to make this one of the cutest baby showers ever!

Storybook Baby Shower

Since both parents are teachers, a literature/storybook theme was a perfect choice for the baby shower.  It is likely that there will be many open books in this baby boy’s future.  But, “In the Beginning,” this cookie will start the celebration of a new life!

The cookie itself was a brown sugar and spice version, care of cookie goddess Bridget Edwards at Bake at 350.  She and her recipes are AH.mazing!
