Flo, who already had five kids of her own, had divorced and remarried and Flo's and Silvio's kids -- like a bunch of elves -- filled a minivan and two taxis .

They had a lot of laughes about washing all those dish's until Uncle Antony found his baby girl, Eutrusca, curled up under his chair, sound asleep, using Agneses' bag for a pillow. Eutrusca hadn't waited for her grandpas long after-dinner speech to put her to sleep.
