Hey Guys! So, as promised, here is the post about my graduation party. It was pretty much a blast! Here are some pictures of preparation for the evening. We made a lot of food which was good because we had a bunch of people come!
Mom and Leah getting ready to make chipped beef sandwiches. 🙂
All the decorations and food stuffs. We do love planning a party!
More decor and food. We don’t do anything half way you know. 🙂
Hannah reigning over her kitchen!
That’s me. 🙂 I’m baking the cake batter for the cake pops. I used a recipe on one of my dear friends’ blog if your interested in trying them yourself here’s the link to her lovely blog. 🙂 http://living4him-4ever.blogspot.com/
We all worked on making the cake pops together. It was quite a job. Also an adventure. We ended up, to save time, just sprinkling them all with the frosting instead of dipping them. They didn’t end up looking as cute as my friends but I’m of the opinion that they were just as tasty. 🙂
Grace with one of her cake pop masterpieces.
Grace put together a board of semi-embarrassing pictures. O well, memories right?
Here’s some pictures of our outside set up. This is the food tent. There was no food in it at the time that this picture was taken so you’ll just have to take my word for it. 🙂
Here’s a picture of our table decorations. Inspiration for these came from moi!
I think pretty much all our friends showed up! It was a great time! I was so excited to see them all!
Some of my girlfriends from church. They were all so sweet to come!
One of my really good friends. It would be a better picture if she would have just posed but this is all I got, sorry. 🙂
There’s a better picture of her on the right! It’s not all of her beautiful face but better than the picture three above!
You to?! Come on guys just let us take a nice picture already!
About 3/4 of the way through the party it got really cloudy. Then it started sprinkling on and off. Didn’t dampen the spirits at all thankfully! Cute Hannah, real cute.
The beautiful Paige Noelle! Such a sweetheart!
Some of my friends are quite the characters. We decided to take a group picture but I’m pretty sure the pictures that got taken while Hannah was trying to organize the group picture are way more precious than the actual group photo! Check out the blonde in the red shirt. Yep, she’s a handful. 🙂
Facial expressions are so precious. Not mine though. What in the world was I thinking about that made me make that face?!
This is still in the organization stage as you can see. 🙂 They’re such characters!
They’re we go! Finally we got them under control! Aren’t they so sweet looking?
Megan. Possibly the most insane one of all of them. 🙂 We took her to our second three french hens market last weekend. That was an adventure. :):) Just kidding Megan, we love you!
The lovely Lexi!
To top the night of, after most of the people had left my friend Madison played the guitar for us! She is such an amazing musician! She writes her own music and sings with such a beautiful voice! I loved every second she played and sang, I could have listened all night! She also has a lovely blog. Here’s the link. http://1voice2hands.blogspot.com/
Thank you for checking in and thank you to all the people that came to the party! Our whole family had such a great time!
Tread on Trafficking Update
So, I apologize for the combining of the two posts but we had the graduation day post ready for several days but it never got posted so therefore we simply combined the two posts. Anyway, we ran 15 miles each this week and worked out for 80 minutes each. I don’t have any really hilarious story’s for you today but I do have one mildly funny story. It was Thursday and Lydia and I were getting ready to run and we were trying to hurry because we had to get back to work out with Hannah and Mom. So I get my water bottle and shoes and step out of my bedroom and Naomi is standing right there and she starts teasing me telling to hurry up and go faster so just to be funny I run pell mell down the hallway and pretty much leap down the stairs but then I tripped and pretty much slid down the last three stairs. Yeah, REAL intelligent of me. 🙂 Oh well, I’m sure the bruises will fade eventually! So, thanks for checking in and we will try to post again next week about our trip to the Three French Hens market. Be sure to check in for our next post!
