So the police came and talked to Larry and then both of us together and first they addressed the car issue. They were upset at the amount of cars lined up on the sides of the street. I said, "no problem, we'll go park all the cars at the clubhouse (golf clubhouse in our development) and shuttle the people back in vans to the house." I don't think they were prepared for us to suggest that. We started implementing this plan immediately but not satisfied with that, they went on to say, "you also have to get the kids out of the front yard." What?! I was so ticked. I mean, does a person own their property or what? I can't have kids on my lawn? How crazy. It's my lawn. It would be different if they were doing something illegal on our front lawn but they weren't. There were just so many of them, that was supposedly the issue. So I guess it's legal to have two people in your front yard but if you have 50 it's a problem? I seriously wanted to get that whole big pack of kids together and sing, "This Land is Your Land" to the top of our lungs. :) But WWJD? Well, I actually don't know that He wouldn't do something dramatic being that He turned water to wine and attended parties and all that stuff. I really wish Jesus was there in the flesh at our party.
I always wanted to meet the Fox News Team and this could have been my chance...drats!!!
Oh well, great things about last night's party:
- Outpouring of love and support for Jordan - tons of people here to express their love!
- Loads of fun during the party time we did have.
- We had enough food and it was all amazing! Special thanks to all the friends who brought desserts! Cookies and cakes and pies, oh my! We may not have had any booze but I'll tell you what we DID have...all our Shrodes party favorites...the best chicken salad sandwiches in the world, world famous crab puffs, artichoke dip, crab dip, cocktail meatballs, taco salad, cherry and pumpkin pies, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter and Hershey kiss cookies and molasses cookies, brownies, cupcakes, chocolate pie, and tons of soda pop, iced tea and lemonade. Enough of this yummy food and you might just run around the yard or jump off the sofa too...lol.
- Jordan seems very happy! What more could we ask for, except maybe Madea at our next party?
