Carrot Cake for 7 ? or 9 ?

Just in case you've been hiding under a rock for the last few months, and didn't hear, Jenni and Phil got Married last week!! HORRAY!!! YIPPEE!!! It was everything we could have wished for. The weather was beautiful, and Bride and Groom were stunning, the Reception was a TON of FUN, and they newlyweds had a fun and relaxing honeymoon in Aruba. (yea, i'm jealous)Jenni is so cute, she keeps posting things on FB like, "I'm a Wife!" and "I'm Married". Yeah, now the REAL life begins. lol

I'll post some photos of the Wedding Day once we get them back from the Photographer. (AnDrea, who was AWESOME by the way. And my dear friend KC as 2nd shooter!) Jenni looked Gorgeous in her Ivory wedding dress, and the Reception was decorated so cute and fun! My girl did a GREAT job with her theme, and I think the guests enjoyed all the little details that she put so much time and effort (and $$) into. And all the amazing people that just stepped right in and helped,...WOW! You all know who you are, and I've already (tried) to thank most of you, but I have to say again, THANK YOU SOOOOOO MUCH! I have simply AMAZING Friends!! In a perfect world, we would have been able to pay to have all the reception taken care of, but since we don't live in a perfect world, we had to do almost ALL of it ourselves. And it was such a great help having all the help and support and last minute donations available to us. A few people I want to give a 'shout out' to:

My AWESOME Samoaan Mother-in-law, Sefiti - 90% of the dinner! And Father-in-law Clois for his BBQ skills!
My sister-in-law Cyndi - Kitchen Helper Extrodinaire!!
Angie Jones - the YUMMIEST cookies ever! (the ONLY thing I ate at the reception, 2 of her Snickerdoodles)
Colleen and Tina - Last minute Fruit delivery, yea!
Tami, Liz, and Cari - my cake cutters/servers. I started to help with the cake cutting, but got distracted. These ladies did it ALL. AMAZING!
TAMI again, for her help that same day in getting the food ready. She followed my directions PERFECTLY!
My sister-in-laws, Rhonda, Angela, Krystal - Food helpers, great job!
My (future daughter-in-law?) Linda N - you rocked at cooking Eggrolls! haha, wink-wink!
My #1 SON Gary Alan for his awesome Skills as DJ. He rocked the house!
Sooooo many more people that I can't remember, THANKS !

So that Jenni is gone, should it be 'Carrot Cake for 7' or since I gained a Son-in-law, 'Carrot Cake for 9' ??? LOL!

definitely for "9" - although more people mean smaller portions (remember fractions?) - more people also mean more fun!!! And maybe we can just make MORE cake too!!
