4 weddings, a communion and a confirmation. God willing, no funerals.
Our social calendar is getting pretty full, and it's only February. We have all of the above betweeen March and October. But hey, it's a great way for our two new kids to get to meet all the 3rd cousins twice removed that we didn't even know we were related to. AND, I'll get my money's worth out of the dress clothes I'll need to buy them. Usually if I had to buy them a pair of dress shoes, they'd get worn to the one event and then become a breeding hutch for dust bunnies in the bottom of the closet. So this year the jackets and ties and nice pants and decent shoes and dresses will get to be worn again and again. And again ....
I can hear the kids now in July, "Mommmmmmm, this black wool dress is too hot!" "You'll wear it and you'll like it. Now turn around so I can do up your buttons".
