Emily dressed as Marilyn Monroe for her Cotillion Halloween Party Saturday night. I went over and helped her with her makeup before the party. She really looked gorgeous and it was hard to believe she's four months shy of being twelve!
We were talking about the dance and I asked her if they served any food at the party (of course I asked that) and she said, rather glumly, "Nothing but hard cookies and punch."
My brother, Dave, also her father, chimed in, "for what we're paying for Cotillion, she should be served Filet Mignon."
I then asked, "is it really expensive?"
Dave replied, "heck yes, it is."
Exactly a half second later, Emily let a huge burp that rattled the windows and woke up the dog.
"And as you can see, we're really getting our money's worth," my brother said.
