My baby shower that is. Id love to have all my Mylot friends at my baby shower that would be so fun. My high school friend is in town and throwing me a baby shower on Sunday. Its not gonna be anything big as its last minute so alot of people may not be able to make it. So if youre gonna be in Minnesota you should stop by lol. Now my question is she is having it be a Mad Hatter theme and said we should all wear silly hats and well does anyone know what she means. I dont own any hats so im gonna need to get one and im not sure what i need to get any ideas?

Oh what fun that would be. Too bad California and Minnesota are so darned far apart...I'd be there for sure. I hope you really enjoy your special day hon. As for a hat, I would go out and find one of those really old fashioned ones with all the big annoying feathers on it. Or you could go and buy a plain hat and put something like buttons, or those pins with the silly sayings on them. At any rate, I hope you have a good time and get lots of wonderful things for you and the baby.

It is too bad I do not have time/money. It would be a great excuse to come see my daughter, as well, and your dad. Lampshades make cute hats, too. I think I would wear a funnel and come as the tin man from Kansas, representing Dorothy.

You could make a hat. Maybe decorate a colander from your kitchen with anything you can imagine. Use dry foods like lentils and pasta. Or, since it is a baby shower, maybe decorate it with diapers, binkies, and other baby related items. Or, get a diaper and decorate that and fashion it into a bandanna like hat. If I am in Minnesota, I will definitely stop by!

LOL! Good! I am glad I could give you some kind of idea! LOL! I am sort of clueless about all that stuff because I have only ever been to one baby shower. That would be awesome to watch BB with you! And, even more fun to yell at the idiots with you! LOL!

I think since it is a baby shower, you need a baby bonnet. I am sure you do not have one that fits. You could use a large bandana type scarf. Fold it in half. Fold the folded edge back one fourth of the way, so it looks like a cuff. Using needle and thread make a running stitch across the back, through both layers, draw it up. Attach ribbons to the two front corners, and you have a bonnet that will fit you. Wish I could be there.

If you want a funny hat, all you have to do is go to your daddies house. I am sure he has lots and lots of funny hats to choose from. I wish I could make it too your baby shower, they are always so much fun. Baby girl clothes are alwasys so cute. Have fun and I hope you get lots of nice gifts and have a nice time.

OOh how fun, I wish I could be there! It's nice that yoru friend told you about teh shower ahead of time. I hate surprise baby showers- because usually the mom-to-be is never surprised anyway! Have you registed for baby items yet? If so, where did you register?

Well she had to tell me she doesnt know everyone to invite as shes living in California shes just viviting. I did register at Target but I have told my friends not to worry to much about getting me a gift as I got most the things i really need so im guessing i will get mostly girl clothing if anything. I know my mom is getting me formula since thats something a new baby always needs. Plus my MIL works at target and she widdled my list down fast. She loves shopping.

I am not sure what a madhatter is, I think Dumblndzzy is right though, I know that's the kind of hats I pictures. I also pictured the proper hats that you see a lot of proper ederly ladies wearing. Almost like the Red Hat Society's. I don't know, but that's just what I pictured. Congratulations on the baby shower, hope it's just as good as the last ones you've had! Is it going to be a all girls, or are there going to be boys? I know some baby showers, there are still the guys there! Well Have fun!

Oooo, I wish I could make it but I'll be there in thought, plus a bunch of women and baby clothes, not my thing but it does give the guys a chance to miss the girls while their gone. The only problem is when the come back from a baby shower they want to either make a baby or.... Anyway, if you don't have a silly hat you can always make one. I suggest finding a ball cap or a hat you already have and getting some paper and writing down things like, "MOM", "WIFE", "MYLOTTER", ect you get the idea. BTW, a Mad Hatter would be somebody like in the movie Alice In Wonderland, the crazy guy, you know. This is on the subject but off the topic. The reason they were called mad hatters is because hat makers would put mercury in the brim of the hat and it would seep into the persons brain and drive them mad. Nice huh? That's why all my ball cap are cotton lined. Have fun at your baby shower, I forgot to ask, boy or girl?

OMG minnie need you ask? With some of the goofy hats your father has I am so sure that finding a hat will be the least of your worry. I did laugh however when I read that you are inviting all your myLot friends thinking,"You know as popular as this family is wouldn't it be something if some myLot friends actually did show up?" Well I know there is zero chance I will be leaving Canada anytime soon with the gas price, but one thing is for definate if I was anywhere near Minnesota, I would do my best to find you. Have fun my friend!!!

My dads hat will be spoken for my mom needs a hat lol. It would be great if someone from Mylot showed up might have been able to happen had there been more notice. But with gas prices no one wants to go anywhere these days. Although ive been told gas prices here in Minnesota are pretty low overall.

Well, I have a red pig hat. I don't know why, we aren't from Arkansas, but my dad has this big Arkansas Razorback hat that I always wore to school for hat day. I always won because no one had ever seen a hat that big, or at least not a pig hat that big. Maybe you should just get a bright pink wig and call that a hat. I love the Mad Hatter theme idea.

Oh how I wish I could join your Baby Shower but I'm here in the Philippines and very impossible. Baby Shower is a party I don't wanna miss because it is such a big fun. It's a nice feeling to have a part in welcoming the upcoming big bundle of joy. If only I'm from Minnesota, I'd surely be one of your guests. Well for now, let me just wish you all the happiness and all the best. God bless!
