Today is the first of my sons’ 7 sacraments. I couldn’t be prouder! I have on my best suit, fresh haircut, my grandfather’s watch and my great grandmother’s cross. I’m ready to stand in Church with a lot of my family and friends to present my children to God and ask He bless their souls for all of eternity. My godparents are prepared and warned not to do anything to embarrass their godchildren or me. The party afterwards will be ready in the hotel ballroom we rented. Not sure that’s a normal thing but what do I know. I wanted everyone at my house for lasagna and spaghetti buffet. Instead we are doing a 2 course buffet starting with a 3 meat option and 10 side dishes with homemade dinner rolls. Followed up by an 8 option dessert buffet with cake Lol I don’t think my event planner has done many of these but at least I talked her out of the all seafood menu she started with. They aren’t even 3 months old why on Earth I greenlit this entire party is beyond me. I’m overcompensating for the fact they have no mom and I have no female in my life telling me to scale this party back so we went way overboard. I just want everyone to meet my boys today, have a great time and help us celebrate God blessing us all with this day.
Lindsay decided to take 6 of my girl cousins out last night. The staggered in at 5:45AM! so there’s that to deal with later. She plopped on my couch and said “I just need a baby kitten nap get me up in a half hour.” So I returned the boat horn waking she did on all of us yesterday and woke her up with her mother standing over yelling at her she’s late for school Lol I gave her $20 to do that. Lindsay started laughing and said it brought back bad memories Lol
Andrew has been a huge help. He has helped me wrangle all of my family and made sure we all got to the restaurant last night for family dinner. Then helped me, Ben, and Trina get everyone over to the hotels and bring back my older family to my home for the night. Drew and I didn’t get to bed until 1:30 because we were talking about today’s plan when he said to me “You do know the girls snuck out and stole your Escalade, right?” No! Lindsay!! Lol
God I swear on my mother if you could shut Lindsay’s mouth for the 10 minutes she will be standing up there with me today I promise to do extra Church ushering or whatever I can to pay you back. Please Lord do not let her mouth start jawing off on how there is no God and this whole “baby sprinkling” (Her words, not mine) is “utter crap”. I will be good for the rest of this week…I mean month! Amen Lol
Heaven help me its family picture time. Proud of my boys. This is the first time I’m bringing them out in public. They are on a look but don’t touch policy today. I pray this whole day goes as smooth as it can.
Wish us luck!
God loves you and my boys and I love you too!
