If Ari's grin wasn't big enough, Eden asking for Toby was the topper on the cake. She pointed to the dining room and smiled from ear to ear. "I'm sure he'll love it. He's right down the hall and to the left in the dining room." As she sent Eden on her way to find Toby she bounced a little from foot to foot while hugging Eden's mom. The two of them had been hoping that their kids would like each other and get married some day, for quite some time now.
After a minute of jumping around and hugging at the prospects of the night, the two of them composed themselves. Ari tugged Rachel with her down the hall to the kitchen to start getting all of the food on the table. "I made a few dishes that you said Eden loves," Ari assured Rachel. "You're all our guests of honor, after all." She grinned and the two mothers hugged again. Things seemed to be falling into place just like they had been hoping they would eventually.
The two women loaded up each of their arms with casserole dishes filled with food and made their way into the dining room where either of ther families were shmoozing.
