We dressed the kids this year as "St. Isaac and the Indians." Dominic was St. Isaac and the girls were the Indians. I even found a baby indian outfit for Clairvaux.
We always eat together with friends before heading out. We had a record crowd this year.
Andrew and Maria arrived in costume. I didn't think much of it until Maria announced who they were. She said, "Andrew is Bob the Builder and I'm...(and she points to her shirt" Under Construction." SCREAM. The room fell silent for a moment and then we all got it. Baby #3 for them is due in June. We are all thrilled. This will be grandchild #18 for my parents with Dominic (age 8) being the oldest.
