Back in February I threw a surprise baby shower for a girlfriend of mine here in Germany. It was her third child and finally a boy, but she had never had a baby shower because it is not a something that they do here in Germany. Their custom is to visit the mom and new baby in the hospital and bring a gift then. She is married to an American so we thought we would share an American tradition with her.
She was so surprised!!!! I had her convinced that we were going shopping so I could buy her somethings that she needed for the baby. Her hubby and another one of our friends offered to watch my 3 boys and their 2 kids, my hubby was doing training in the states so he wasn't here to watch our kids. So I picked her up to go "shopping", which she had told her hubby she wasn't feeling like going and he told her, "It's free stuff for the baby, you're going" LOL!!!! After I picked her up I "realized" I "forgot" my cellphone at home, and with my hubby being in the states I had to go back to my house to get it.
So when we got to my house I told her to come in with me and we could load up the stuff that I was giving her from my last baby. (We had out LAST baby in April 2012, but I still had A LOT of baby stuff, so I offered it her.) Everyone had parked at our friend's house a cross the street and they were all in the living room. One of her friends had brought her little girl, and the girl's shoes were in the hallway, my friend saw them and was like "who's shoes, they are so cute?" We were all in the living room waiting for her to look up, but she was so into looking at the shoes!!! LOL!!! So I said "SURPRISE" and she looked up and saw everyone there and she almost cried!!!! It was the best party I have ever thrown!!!!
Now to get the the crafty part. I didn't want to do the normal diaper cake, so I found a tutorial online on how to make a diaper trike. Well I decided to give it a try and it turned out GREAT!!!!
Here is a link to the tutorial for those that want to give it a try:
