We are finally at a point where we can start inviting people over. Skeeter's baby blessing was on Sunday and we decided to have lunch for the family at our house. We scraped off the paint on the inside of the door in preparation for the big event.
Nate was a stylin' little man in his blessing outfit. Daddy gave a wonderful blessing to his favorite little guy at church where we had at least 3 full rows full of family.
After the blessing, we all headed up to our house for some lunch -- all 40+ of us. Thankfully the weather cooperated beautifully. Our house is bigger than it used to be, but it's still not big enough to have a party of that magnitude inside it. It was nice to be able to show off the work that has been done. Lots of people have been watching the blog but had never seen the progress in person. Even Brian's cousin Andie from RI was here and was able to visit the awesome pair of shoes she gave me in their new beautiful home :). And she's right -- I do need a red pair of shoes!
We had lots of fun with our funny family and the food was amazing thanks to my incredible mother. Thanks to my mom for pulling this together and to everyone else for coming and sharing in our special day.
After we partied 'till we couldn't party no more, we spent the evening cuddling together. We even were able to get the kids to settle down in time for us to watch the Lost series finale. What a great day.
