Let The Games Begin! (Photostory)
The ladies have finished their lunch and now it's time to play a few games.
"Okay ladies, it's game time! My sisters and I are in charge of games, so I thought we'd get it started with a little baby shower bingo." (Grace)
Lauren looks on as she tries to get baby Shay to take a nap.
"My little assistants will help me pass out the bingo cards. Only one per person, please. This is not your local church bingo." (Grace)
There is laughter in the crowd.
Valerie looks over her bingo card as she takes a sip of wine.
"Is she almost sleep?" (Racquel)
"Are you kidding? Those beautiful eyes are wide open." (Lauren)
"So, Kendra and I will alternate calling out different baby items. The first one to get bingo, and call it out, will win a gift. Good luck everyone." (Grace)
It takes about 20 mins before Tanisha declares BINGO! Her prize is a gift certificate for a massage at the local spa, owned by the Coopers.
"Well that was fun. Now we will move on to one of my favorite games called 'What's in your purse?' The person who has the most points after I call off all the items, will win a gift. There are different point values for each of the items. The more obscure the item, the more points you get." (Jacquelyn)
"I will give you all a moment to get ready." (Jacquelyn)
"We should both have a good chance of winning this game." (Valerie)
"You know I almost cleaned my purse out this morning. Good thing I didn't." (India)
Tanisha decides to get a little dessert. She's sitting out the next game, since she won the first one.
After Lauren's failed attempt at getting baby Shay to sleep, Racquel convinces her to put the baby in the stroller and play the purse game.
Shay seems to be fine entertaining herself.
Tanisha is doing what she does best....eat. Where does she put it all?
The purse game ends and you won't believe who accumulated the most points. It was Vanessa. Yay! Her prize was a gift card to Target for $20.
Dominique moves on to the third and final game called, 'Guess the waist'. She passes around a roll of ribbon and the ladies are instructed to cut a piece that is the size of Kendra's waist. The person closest will win a prize.
Robin leads her daughter, Courtney to the restroom.
There are side conversations as the ribbon makes it's way around the room.
"Let's see if we can win another game, Alicia." (Vanessa)
"Okay, so I'm going to demonstrate where you need to place the ribbon when you come up here." (Dominique)
Looks like little Kourtney is sitting this game out.
After all is said and done, and all the ladies have tried their ribbons, Valerie comes closest to the actual belly size. She is thrilled with the win, and gladly accepts her gift bag filled with spa-like goodies.
Baby Shay eventually falls asleep, even with all the excitement in the room.
Next up, Kendra opens some gifts.
