So, as usual, I'm Melanie Ryder, and I'm back for my weekly Melanie's Monday installment! And today I'll be continuing my talk from last week about...
Cal's surprise graduation party!
We've bought all the decorations for the party (well, except the balloons. You can't really buy those in advance), and it's all the usual stuff that says '2009' on it - plates, napkins, centerpieces, balloons (okay, so we did buy the balloons. They just haven't been inflated yet)... Basically anything that can have 2009 on it. Ha.
We've also hired this catering company to come cater the event for the night. So, naturally, they're going to be serving Cal's favorite food - lasagna - with spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread. Yeah, it's a little messy and not the best food for the party, but it is Cal's party so we figured we should at least get him his favorite food. I mean, it is his party after all. Ha. And that includes a white raspberry cheesecake for dessert. Yum!
And the best part is that, with the exception of an aunt and uncle who are out of town, everyone can make it to his party! Even his cousin who's been living in Europe for the past year! Cal's going to be so excited!
So Cal's going to be graduating this week, and his party is the following week. I'll keep you all updated!
