Shower Day!

Wednesday was shower day.  That morning we got the house ready.  We scrubbed and vacuumed and dusted.  Thomas somehow got out of helping on the other days, but I really put him to work on Wednesday.  Matt and Katrina decorated with streamers and tissue paper flowers which ended up looking amazingly good, and we put out the food.  I should also mention that Matt was the technician for the whole thing and worked very hard to set everything up.  The shower started off without a bang at 1:00 that afternoon.  The guests were arriving, but Skype wasn’t working.  Everything was chaos for awhile, till we got Skype up and running.  Then it all settled down and went smoothly except when I had to stop the proceedings to ask everyone to dig in the couches for Matt’s lost wallet.  We found the wallet (somewhere else other than in the couch), and Matt took off to work.  After that we had a wonderful party.  All my sisters brought there daughters and so there were lots of little kids running around.  Sarah also brought her 14 year old son and her two year old son along since she didn’t want those two home alone together.   Thomas and Jonathan had a fun time hanging out with them.  We had the little girls open the bedding packages and show Cassandra.
