We’re Having A Party!

It never feels like a house is a home to me until we have our first gathering of family and friends to help us start making memories wherever we live. So, now that the garage cabinets are in and everything is unpacked and put in its proper place, the backyard has been beautifully landscaped with desert rock, and our beautiful front yard is all in full bloom with our beautiful flowering bushes…we are having our first gathering in our new home next Saturday, June 16th.

We will be welcoming family and friends into our new home for the very first time to help put the warmth in our home that only family and friends can bring. We will also use the day to celebrate my Bro, Danny’s, b-day which is Monday, June 11th, and our dear friend Chuck, has a b-day on June 12, and, of course, Shantel’s b-day is on the party day, June 16th. Then we can’t forget Father’s Day is June 17th. So how wonderful for us to be able to have one big party to celebrate all these special events together!

Since the party date is actually Shantel’s b-day, we let her choose the food theme which will be her favorite, Macayo’s party tray’s of mini chicken and beef chimmi’s, chips and salsa. Then, of course we need a cake. So, Shantel requested a chocolate cake with vanilla whipped frosting with red roses for decorations. There will be adult beverages and soft drinks and if anyone wants to take a swim, the pool is open and the water is fine.

Shantel is having her best friend, Jaz, over to spend the night, my Bro, Danny, his wife, Bea, and her son Chris, will bring my mom. Danny’s daughter Vikki and her kids will all be here as well as our three little lady friends from mom’s old neighborhood, Sandy, Nancy, and Sandi. Of course our dear friends Holly and Chuck will be here as they have never missed a celebration at our home yet. Even our realtors, Mike and Wally are going to join us.

I am so looking forward to this celebration with friends and family. I only wish my frissy, Robin, and her husband, Bob could be here too as well as our kids and extended family both in-laws and out-laws who are all our of state. But, as always, whenever we have a celebration in our home where friends and family members are missing, I will have a place setting set in their honor and I will give thanks for them in our lives as I raise a toast to them as well. Stay tuned for an update in another post.

    The menu sounds excellent and the family and friends will have a fine time. So glad to hear your Mom is coming, and yes I remembered Danny’s birthday. I can still picture him when he was a baby with such beautiful blue eyes and that blond hair and a beautiful smile that would melt your heart. Shantel is such a beautiful young lady, seems like yesterday we met her and she was still a baby, now all grown up and is going into her second year of college. Have a great time. Love you all.
