12 Days of BABY!!

One of my old roommates is having a baby in October.  She lives in Houston now.  Courtney (another roommate) and I were super bummed that we were too poor to be able to go out to Houston and throw her a baby shower.  We wanted to do something special for her, so we thought of what we call "12 Days of BABY!".  We were going to send her a gift every day for 12 days and have the last gift land on the day that she would be having her baby shower here in Utah.  Well, again, Courtney and I realized we were too poor to be able to pay for all the shipping, soooooo...we decided to just give her 11of her gifts at once and still give her the last one on her shower day.  She just arrived to Utah on Wednesday, so Courtney and I ambushed her that evening.  Here's what we made for her:

***Please excuse the crappy pictures...they were taken on my phone in poor lighting.  Sorry!***
