The blog has been quiet for a few days now and I have the perfect excuse, on Sunday we hosted a wedding shower for about 30 people.
I’ve been busy cleaning the house, making and re-making and checking lists, baking (48 mini-cheesecakes and 96 mini-chocolate cupcakes), shopping for food, and setting up the White Powder Game.
I was also busy praying for nice weather. With under 1200 square feet of house (including garage) we were a little nervous about 30 people piling in. Thankfully the weather was lovely, although Gavin and I are seriously considering getting a third umbrella for next summer.
Amazingly we all fit (well, mostly fit) in the living room to open presents. The Couple of Honor were gifted lots of little fun kitchen implements and seemed quite pleased to “finally have matching measuring cups!!”
Oliver spent the afternoon with our wonderful babysitter, playing at the park. He “played nicely with the other children,” enjoyed the snacks I had packed for him, and then fell soundly asleep in the stroller on the way home.
I would like to thank my co-host, Becca for all her help with the shower, and my MIL, Dulce for all her assistance with all the little details (and the car-full of extra super-helpful stuff she hauled up).
