About a dozen people came and celebrated. A few missed it for various reasons and some were sick and missed it at the last minute.
In the weeks prior my friend wanted to do games catering to me so she had me pull all kinds of data. She wanted me to pull pictures of me with everyone at the shower but I don't have time for that or pictures with everyone so we didn't do it. I realized with the request that moms don't ever get pics together anyway. I have pictures of Ella with their kid but not me with them. Or sometimes it's 1 mom + both kids but never both moms. Usually I'm not in it too because I take all the pictures.
The day before someone asks me my favorite kind of cake/icing. I didn't think anything of it and she made cupcakes for the shower with my favorite. A few people brought stuff to make it all so nice.
We started late because I got there late. (Dave's fault since we only have 1 car.)
It was so nice hanging out with people without kids arounds. Most of them I had never been around without kids. Some I might have been around without Ella but definitely not without their kids too. Even when I do a moms night in at my house Ella is there so then I'm not hanging out with them without kids.
We took a couple group pictures at various times trying to make sure we got everyone. I took my good camera so then some of my friends took the camera and took pictures at different times knowing that I like pictures.
