Last Sunday we attended a baby shower for Seth and Julia Fairbanks Rivers who are expecting a boy in the near future.  Emily asked me to make a cake and cupcakes for the occasion and gave me a rather unusual color palette to work with.  I bought a baby blanket from the registry to show the colors and then packed it back up into  a gift bag.  Our Ethnologue intern made the animal figures with just a little of my fiddling with them.  Rachel helped make the cake batter, filling and frosting.  Lots of compliments.
