Our bio boys (ages 2 and almost 4) love to have "Dinner Parties". That is usually quite simple and only involves the dinner being candlelit. In the past, I'm sure we've probably even eaten hotdogs by candlelight. However, this was a bigger occassion. It's not everyday that you get a new grandson.
Since we found our little guy on Reece's Rainbow, I went with the rainbow theme. The table setting was quite easy since we have Fiestaware. I added rainbow candles and goblets. (Kids think everything tastes better from fancy glassware.)
The real treat was the cupcakes.
One not-so-minor detail I forgot in all of my party planning was figuring out how/when we'd share the news with our parents. I was assuming Dave would do this and he figured I would since I had spearheaded the party plans. Oops!
Just before the evening ended, we gave the grandparents framed photos of our little guy. One look was all they needed and I think 4 more people are in love with him!
Unfortunately not every family's announcement is met with the enthusiasm and acceptance we've received. We are truly blessed.
