We’re in! They accepted our application, cakeballs and all! Hallelujah! Thanks, God!
I’m going to message all of you (who said you might/will come) this afternoon with my address, the church’s address, my phone #s, and all that. If you don’t get a message by 4:00 and you want to come, let me know.
Anyone who wants to come to my house any time between noon and 2:30pm is most welcome. I won’t have lunch prepared, but you’re welcome to raid my fridge if you don’t eat before you come. (feel free to stop at McDonald’s on the way and eat it when you get here)
We’ll caravan to the church around 2:30pm. We have the rooms (2 big ones) from 3-8pm. (I had to promise not to put all the kids in a room by themselves and let Livi babysit them while we chat in the other room in peace.) Come any time, stay as long (or as short) as you want.
Gabe will be on hand from about 3-4pm to direct you to the right place when you get to the church. If you plan to arrive after 4, you can call my cell when you get there, and I’ll come find you. Or you can let me know what time you can get there, and I’ll post a sentry of some sort to wait for you. Or you can just follow the smell of cakeballs (or pizza) or the sound of laughter.
I will give you a secret code word when I message you. You must say this to Gabe before you enter the church. To keep us safe from lurkers/stalkers, he will admit 1.) no men and 2.) no women who do not know the secret code word.
I’m going to check on the table/chair situation in the rooms. There are a lot of other things going on at church that evening, so I may need some of you to bring camping chairs/beach towels (for kids to eat on). I’ll let you know.
I will also check on the toy situation. Feel free to let your kids bring any they can keep track of (and that aren’t breakable).
Don’t stress about bringing tons of food. Especially if you have a ton going on this weekend (like Krista). Bring one thing, three things, no things. It’ll all work out.
Again, anyone who just can’t stand to end the party at 8pm is more than welcome to crash my house until whenever a.m.
More details to come! I’m excited now! And someone else is hosting the next Xanga Fest!!
