Even though it rained all day and is still raining now, Emma's day turned out really nice. And guess what? Dan's Mom even came. There was 18 of us there. I made enough food for an army and there was so much left, I was making plates for all to take home, lol. And Emma and I don't have to cook dinner tomorow because we got left overs, lol. Emma got so many beautiful things for her new baby when she arrives next month. And of course the hat made with all the bows was a big success. We had Emma, Dan, Grandma Mazzoli, Rebecca, Marissa and even Dans brother Bill to wear the hat, lol. Dan says to me, Please Mom don't plaster that pic of me with the hat all over the internet. I told him I would never do that, I was just going to put it in my journal, on the internet, lol. Of course the next union meeting he attends with Joe, there will be a pic of Dan wearing that girlie hat being passed around, lol.
Emma got diapers, bibs, wipes, outfits, sleepers, sleeper gowns, onesies, bibs, hats, booties, hooded towels, washclothes, receiving blankets, bottle warmer, bottles, diaper bag, changing pad, parents survival kit which has medicines of all kinds in it, and cards with money.
It rained so to be able to cook on the grill, Joe, Jim and Bill put up beach umbrellas and a big blue tarp. That rain wasn't stopping food being cooked on grill, lol. Of course the kids loved it. They said it was a giant tent and went outside to play while the guys were outside cooking.
Everyone had a great time, enjoyed all the food and company, and had lots of laughs. It went well I think. And I have to tell you this, it is so funny. Marissa, Rebecca and my great-niece Kaylei had a party of their own downstairs in Marissa's room. They took their applejuice boxes, chips, pretzels and streamer rolls of pink and white down to Marissa's room. They were going to decorate the room but needed tape. Well, Marissa goes into the bathroom gets a box of panty liners of Emmas and they use these panty liners to stick up the streamers. I should of gotten a picture of it but I didn't. It was so funny. And the girls thought they did a beautiful job at decorating too. There was panty liners and streamers stuck everywhere. Those girls are too much, lol.
Well guess that's about it. I'm tired. I have 127 alerts to read, but I won't get to all of them tonight. I'll save them for tomorrow. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
Love to you all.....................CINDY
