Whoot Whoot. I am at the BEACH! And that means, I am not working. And that means I have the time to blog every day! So, get yo'self ready! I have LOTS of blog photos loaded up and ready for me to tell you all about... today, it is all about my little high school graduate!!
Yep. Mary Allison is now a graduate. And she's headed to LSU in the fall. That's not cool since it is almost 4 hours away! But, it does make for a good excuse for a roadtrip!!
So, I was asked to help host a grad party with MA's Aunt Judy (Cousans). It was a Mexican fiesta theme.
And there were also blow up bouncy houses and a water slide in the front yard.
I suppose one is never too old for a bouncy house and a water slide!!
I've been watching most of these youngsters grow into young adults. After all, Mary Allison has been a part of our family since she was 12. And lots of these young ladies have been in and out of our social circles with MA since preteen days.
These three are dancers for Miss Linda. With the recital recently, I got to watch them perform their last recital. Bittersweet. All of these girls have also been a part of the Twin City Ballet Company for years too.
Here are Mary and her BFF, Lauren. These two helped me with my art classes in the fall. They did a fab job!
Here are my cute shoes and pedicured toes. Look hard and fast, cause groomed toes and wedge heels are a rarity!!
Hey... y'all remember Nicole? My old next door neighbor?! And Mary Allison ACTUAL aunt? ! Maybe you did and maybe you didn't realize that MA's mom, Pam, is Nicole's older sister. And guess who that is in the blue... ready for this?! IT's KK's mom!!! So glad she decided to have KK! She is like a part of the fam!! In fact, we are waiting on KK to join us at the beach in a few days!
This young hunk is headed to an Ivy League School. He is going to play football there, I do believe. But he is also a genius. And speaking of genius, my MA was also a valedictorian of a class of well over 450. Pretty dang impressive, huh?!
And she wore the tassel for National Honor Society. And she was voted Most School Spirit by her peers. Considering my baby girl's last couple of years, I'd say she has risen WAAAY above her circumstances! It takes a BIG, BIG heart to do that. She is quite an impressive young lady!
Hey! It's me and Nicole!
Reunited, and it feeeels so good....
And so. That concludes my recap of the great graduation party of 2013. Just you wait... I have about 10 or more blogs loaded up and ready to rock and roll. PLUS. I am at the beach, so I have about 1,000 more pics on their way! And... no work. SO, I oughta be able to get it done! Hang in there with me, peeps.
