Tom invited everyone... from both sides of the family. Mom, John, John's parents, Jaime, Dad, Dorenda, Pat, Grandad, Beth, and Kevin. Of course, you don't know who all those people are. Don't worry about it. The point is, it's kind of unusual to have gatherings that involve my mom's family and my dad's family, although everyone does get along splendidly.
Anyway, word on the street was that Tom and Denise had some sort of big announcement. They've been married four years now, so, you do the mathematics. And when Denise arrived yesterday afternoon she was wearing a really baggy shirt. I was pretty sure our assumptions were correct. But as it turns out, they still had pretty nice surprise in store.
Denise is pregnant with twins. They are due around March or April. Everyone is thirlled.
I ordered the chicken scampee. It was pretty good!
