Since I didn’t do a May photo dump….I will do a party photo dump. And you will all suffer for this. I at least broke it down into two parts. We had so many people here that I really wanted to include them all. Well at least the ones that read this nonsense.
This is an ‘after’ photo. I had this brilliant idea to do this party signing frame…ok, that was NOT the brilliant part.
My intention was to have a PHOTO of her in her cap and gown from the night before IN THIS FRAME. But I never got the photo. Soon, I will have some professional proofs in the mail from graduation and surely I will fork over some cash to put ONE in this big frame. I had everyone at the party sign this for her. A forever keepsake.
The shadow box was nice…but really, I could not get as much in there that I wanted. Like her first toothbrush, dirty diaper, onesie, etc….*sigh*
I had actually set up a table in the dining room days prior to the party of stuff I was going to ‘put out’…some recent awards. (offensive player of the year for 2 years!)
She saw this table and I said:
I am setting up a shrine for you.
her reply: creepy.
The dessert table with some ‘shrine’ mixed in.
The food table…before all the food was ready. The paper flowers were an idea I borrowed from my sweet friend Dawn. I think she also sent me the link for using the photos in the vases…nice right?
The coach and his step dad frying some veggies. Ok, not veggies, but notice the graduate is supervising.
Linds and my Uncle Jim. (UJ) I should write an entire post about all the things he helps me with when he visits…cleaning, cooking, fixing stuff. Amazing.
I made it a point to take photos with Lolo of every family who came. Can you guess which family I forgot to get a photo of???
Yep. US. No redo’s on that one. I have been kicking myself for this…which is really hard since my legs are so short.
We had our peeps from the East coast….
no, they have never stayed at the YMCA….or the UVCA for that matter.
My fil and Mil (coach’s mama)
My mil and fil (Coach’s dad)
Yep, we have all the inlaws and outlaws….and never any bloodshed. I know, crazy good right?
Tomorrow I will share some more pictures…including my side of the crazies. Ok, they are all crazy.
We had a great weekend THIS weekend as well. My niece has been with us for a week and I have adopted another 18 year old as well. Plus Lo has had other girl friends and boys over for days. All these teenagers….Seems they all have one thing in common: They love to eat and never have any money. OY.
How was your weekend?
