Jamie appeared from the dining room, where he'd finished tacking up the 'Congratulations Dad & Lena' banner that he'd painted. Everyone that needed to be there was there, and the house had a happy buzz to it.
"Kiddo, your banner's falling-!" Maddy cut herself off. "Down. Never mind. I got it, go see what Lena needs." She gathered up the box of push pins and mounted the step ladder, determined to pin the offending paper into position.
"Lena, it's a great idea," Jamie assured her. "Everything's going to be great, we'll have a nice dinner and you guys will be so cute, everyone's teeth will fall out of their head."
