Here is the cake that Mark's brother, Alex, made for us. It was 4 layers of yellow and chocolate cake with oreo filling in between them. It was AMAZINGLY good! I have a few pieces frozen for Mark so he'll get to try it too.
I think there were about 30 people there.
Mark was able to "attend" via Skype. You can see the computer set up beside me so he could see what was going on and I was showing everything to him as I opened it and telling him what we got. The internet is pretty amazing.
Here's a picture of my family members that were there. From left to right - Brenda and Michael (my cousin), my grandma, my mom, me, my dad, and Ruthie and Allison (cousins).
All I can say is Abbie is going to be one well-dressed baby! We got a TON of clothes for her. Luckily, they ranged quite a bit in sizes from newborn to 18 months, so I'm going to keep them all. I can't wait to show them all to Mark and get them all organized. We also got toys and bottles and towels and bibs and books, etc. And we got 2 handmade blankets and a handmade mei tai with it's own case. (That's the beige thing in the bottom, right corner.) Amazing!
