Shower Held for Our 1st Grandchild!
A baby shower was held on July 28, 2007 at Palm Gardens Banquet Hall in Homestead in honor of our daughter, Deborah Ruiz and her husband, Eddy. Our 1st grandchild should be born in approximately one month. Here Debi and Eddy stand at the entrance of the hall with a poster of their past pictures.
Debi was surprised by over 55 guests including a surprise visit from her sister, Jessie, from Philly, Aunt Diane from Pa. and family friend, Nancy Kirmani from Maryland. Also surprising her were her babysitter, Lorie, from Tampa and Lorie's mom, Linda and Joan Sfakianos. Debi's kindergarten teacher was supposed to attend but had a death in the family but Robin Lodge from Florida City Elementary surprised Debi. Also traveling a ways was Sharon Rhyce from Tampa and Sandy D'Orazio from Cooper City.
Debi spent almost two hours opening the many gifts and our grandbaby is going to be well dressed and taken care of. Debi also opened a bumper pad and quilt set that I designed and sewed for her.
