Oh how I wish I had my video camera last night! If I would have remembered to bring it to Arizona, you would now be watching a beautifully edited montage of Kaci yelling at us while cooking the food for Caitlin's baby shower. This still photo will have to suffice.
Ever since Kaci returned home from the CIA, it's like we are her army for Goodrich special events. We kept saying, "Kaci, it's just a baby shower, not a wedding reception." 10 minutes before she arrived at the house she called me from her cell with a list of things I needed to have ready for her in the kitchen (celebrities call them their "riders"): hot griddle, cutting board with the knives placed at a 90 degree angle, etc. In this picture, she started yelling at me that if I put this photo on my blog she would literally sue me, and then she noticed Kelley wasn't whipping the cream right. In her defense, the food is really good and people loved it. I really feel like it made Caitlin's shower special. But, man, is it INTENSE!! When people arrived at the shower, Kelley whispered, "Kaci, people are in the house now." And suddenly Kaci screaming something like, "ARE YOU STUPID? DO NOT CUT IT THAT WAY!!" turned into, "Sweetheart, let me help you with that." Kaci, did I mention that I love you and feel privileged to work in your kitchen? It's just a little Jekyll and Hyde-ish, that's all.
We couldn't get the cat to stay off the serving dishes. We finally had to banish him to the 110 degree heat outside. I kept saying, "Make sure you wipe off those dishes before you put the food on them, just a thought." My mom said, "Stewart [the cat] thought it was his garden."
Cupcakes with edible flowers.
On the invitation I wrote (in a cute way) that she is having a boy and already has all the baby clothes she needs, yet, someone still gave her a little girl's outfit. When the woman who gave it to her walked in, she said to some other guests, "Has she gotten any other girl's clothes yet?" so maybe the joke is on us, because it is really funny to give someone who is having a boy, a dress?? I don't know. Caitlin was nice and said thanks. The woman said she got it at "Ross's" so she can take it back, but then we noticed that she left the plastic security tag on it like it's a stolen good (the tag is circled in green, for your convenience, on the picture.) At least Caitlin can take it back to "Ross's," she might get arrested if she does, but she can still take it back.
When everyone started going home, we took some fun modeling pictures with the fan.
