We had an awesome Italian feast cooked by Mikaela and her future mother-in-law, Nancy! As a reward, she got to hold Adele for a while, I think she was happy to do so. (Hi, Nancy!) Dinner was fantastic.
And then we toasted to the future Mr & Mrs with some wine from the vineyard they are getting married at. We’re all looking forward to their wedding next year!
We waited a few more days to do all our gifts so everyone could be there, but we were all too excited to wait for Adele’s. So she got to open all her presents early.
She got so many nice things from everyone! Toys, clothes, feeding supplies, games, ornaments! She also got a pillow pet, a CD where all the songs are about ‘Adele’, and a story book where my parents recorded their voices reading it so Adele can hear them when we read it together (I know, I almost cried!) Lots of thoughtful gifts for my little girl. I say it again, she is so lucky.
The party continued over my aunt’s house. That’s become a fun tradition. We eat desserts and play games. There’s always a mean game of ‘Left, Right, Center‘ to be played. This year, Michelle reigned champion!
