This is what it looked like-crowded.
There were not enough seats and it was standing room only. It was nuts.
I was totally embarrassed. I felt so bad because I could not visit with anyone really and my poor sister was embarrassed because her house was not accommodating to that many people. If we would have know how many would have shown up, we would have had it at a church. I guess that is why you R.S.V.P, right? Well I didn't even put that on the invitation so that was my fault totally. And I should have had two or three different showers but NO, I wanted to get it done in one. But now I wish I would have done it differently.
People were leaving because there was no room, which made me feel even worse because I didn't want anyone to feel that way but I totally understood. When people would tell me later they were sorry they didn't make it, I always told them I was glad they didn't because that meant one less person I had to feel bad for.
This is a picture of when half of the people were showing up. In my lap, I am holding cute little Mary. She is my friend, Ann's little girl. So cute! Ann was such a help that day. She was helping my sister get things out of the way so that they could make room for people.
This was what the seating arrangement looked like. Pathetic!
