I have a lot to blog about, what with Sabrina's baby blessing last Sunday and the election on Tuesday, but I'll break it up into two posts. Anyway, we blessed Sabrina on Sunday, and then had everyone over to our house for soup etc. Mom was a superstar, basically making all the soup, apple crisp, salad...What would I do without her? (Actually, I know the answer. A lot.) The blessing was really nice. It was too bad that so many brothers and brothers-in-law had other commitments that day, but it was nice to see almost everyone at our house afterwards. It felt really fabulous to see everyone come support us.
One thing that was hard was that it was our first week at our new building which is so small that a bunch of the family had to sit in the foyer. That was sad. Also, it was pouring rain, which just seemed to make everything harder.
As far as the socializing went, I wish our house were built for people! Apparently, our kitchen was designed by the same guy that designed submarine galleys, so every time someone tried to get from the living room to the family room, they risked someone dumping soup down their back. To say nothing of wild nieces and nephews chasing each other at belly button level. Ah, there's nothing like family.
Sabrina was extremely well behaved, and super cute. Here are pictures if you don't believe me.
