Moving Out

My grandson Matt and his wife Tori are moving to their own little house on July 1st. They have been married for almost 2 years and last night Delores, their other grandmother, threw them a house-warming shower.
The picture above is Matt showing his second cousin, Dylan his 2-way radio. This picture and the next one were not taken at the shower.

Matt has been training to become a firefighter and just completed EMT school on Friday and on Saturday & Monday he completed the State Board exams. He’s still not old enough to be hired in most departments as a firefighter, but he can work for an ambulance service.
This is Tori with Dylan.

They received many nice gifts….pots n pans, silverware, assorted cooking utensils, cleaning supplies including a couple of toilet brushes, a very nice vacuum cleaner, bath towels, dish towels and their FAVORITE gift was a charcoal grill with all the supplies needed to have a cookout tonight, except for the steaks & burgers.

If there is any family reading this that gave them a gift, don’t get your panties in a bunch….I gave them the nice charcoal grill and this is my blog…so of course the grill is their favorite gift! And if I failed to mention your gift, it’s because I didn’t make a list. *S* Aunt Sharon also sent them over an early present which was a very nice gift.
This is Suzanne, Matt’s mother playing with some of Matt’s nieces and nephews that attended the shower. I think that infants and toddlers out numbered the adults at the shower. *LOL*

My nephew, who just turned 21 has been working towards being a firefighter for years. He did EMT first and now has completed paramedic. Both schools are required to become a firefighter. He now has to work in the Emergency Room for several months as part of his training..

Congradulations Matt and Tori! Sorry we missed this shower also. It also seems like we miss a lot of get togethers here lately and we are so sorry. It is not that we don't care and we don't think about them, I hope everyone understands. We do have them a gift. We usually try to come to every get together it just seems like something is always coming up lately so we apologize for not being where we really should be, with family.

Matt and Tori are such a cute couple and we wish them all the best and we are so happy for them!
I know they have to be just thrilled and we are for them!

Love all of you guys!

Looks like a fun time. What a help it is for a young couple to get such nice gifts when moving into their first house. So many lovely little ones at the party! Dylan is a real little cutie.
