We ended up going to 315 Mass just like normal though. Only, we were just on time and stood for the whole thing even though this was the "overflow" Mass in the gymnasium. Not a big deal. Until the end (when, incidentally, we finally had seats because of the large numbers of people who left after communion... ahem...), and then somehow Caroline happened to notice this leetle red button next to an outlet on the wall.
And she pushed it. BEEEP! Yeah, it was the buzzer for times up in basketball or something. The entire congregation and priests jumped. Then laughed. I personally laughed (quietly) so hard I was crying. Scared the daylights out of poor Carrie! Hey, she was under Ken's watch at the other end of the row.... Another first for us!
Dinner time! Oh what a delicious dinner it was! We had fun eating on our china and drinking from fancy wine glasses and feasting.
Mom and Dad still had a lot of presents to wrap!
