Wow! That's all I can say. Just, Wow! Oh, and then there's, yeah it's over! And I can't forget, thank goodness for Den moms and just Moms in general!
What a night last night was. Dave and I have been preparing for last night for forever. At least it feels that way. There has been lots of thinking, planning, running around shopping, meeting with our commitee, asking for ideas, oh yeah and spending our entire weekend last weekend making a dragon. Other than Dave and I just being too crunched for time and not being able to have things all set up early enough everything went really well. And even that wasn't too bad because we had so many people helping us out. Except that for those of you that know me can probably guess it made me really grumpy.
We had a great guest speaker. He even made me want to be Chinese as he spoke about how much respect for elders was important in their culture! (was that Chase who just ran by after we asked him to help set tables?)
The food was fantastic. Dave asked me this morning if I had already taken Dana Spears left over food back to her. I said yes and he was sorely disappointed that he couldn't eat it himself.
The best part of the night though was as expected our dragon parade. It was complete with a festival dragon, little masked dragons running around, some very dragon sounding webelos, authentic festival music and best of all (in the minds of most of the kids) fireworks! OK so we were in the church and couldn't have real fireworks, but the bubblewrap was just as fun!
