It was complicated keeping track of 3 sets of emails and remembering who was supposed to know what. However, in a way it was easier. We had one cover story – We were doing a surprise party for the other person who thought that Debi was going out with Ruth and Tom and that Benjamin was coming over to babysit. Each of them thought that (s)he was in on the big secret. They were surprised Saturday evening when we yelled “Surprise! Happy Birthday! Happy Graduation!” and Teresa came in with the sign:
Ruth and the kids and Miriam made the pinata. Good job!!
We had lasagna (Debi made one pan 'for Benjamin's party' and Ruth made another - one was cheese and one had meat). Salad, garlic bread (David and Teresa made the bread and the spread from scratch), corn, and two luscious desserts by Miriam.Oh, and posh punch.
After dinner, we went out and played "Beat Ben" - something Debi often suggest, although I am not sure this is what she usually has in mind.
"I hate people" and "I hate stupid people" "Poop and fart" "Cupcakes" "Nap time for Debi" and "Let's play Beat Ben"
We had a great time. Thanks Teresa! (and everyone else!)
