Woo Hoo!!!!

He did it!!!! Or should I say we did it! Now I'm going to go crash for about a week lol!! This was quite the exciting/busy week. Jonathan turned 16 on Thursday and Daniel graduated yesterday and may I just say that although it was all good and wonderful I am pretty thrilled that the week is now behind me! Here are some photo's of the big day.
Playing Piano for the prelude:they have a time in the middle of the ceremony where the graduates bring their mom a rose :) family photo:Senior photo board:Can't forget the Birthday boy!I made the yummiest white chocolate raspberry truffle ice cream cake for Jonathan's B-day...I think it had about 5,000 calories per slice and they all showed up on my hips just in time for graduation lol!I did start a new top...hey a girl's gotta de-stress right? This is with "Isn't Christmas Jolly?" It's just blocks right now and I've been playing with them on my design wall. I'm off to catch up on some blog and e-mail reading, I pretty much haven't even seen my computer for the last week! Have a great rest of the weekend! I'm planning on just trying to stay cool...did I mention that it's been well over a 100 degrees for the last week? Last night it was still 90 at midnight!! I know thats no big deal for some of you living on the surface of the sun...(Darlene) but I'm not used to it!! As long as the power doesn't go out and my a/c keeps kickin' out the chilled air I guess I'll survive :)

What good looking young men. I remember my own children at that age and I remember wondering...where did the time go? The colors in the quilt are great - sewing destresses me, too. :) Blessings, marlene

Congratulations, happy belated birthday, what a great start to your new Christmas quilt, and yum.

Amanda said...

Congratulations to your sons. I'm not surprised you haven't been near your computer much this week. I don't know how you guys manage with such high temperatures. I start to die if it goes above 75 degrees. Mind you, air conditioning is unheard of in British homes, just not needed. We have two portable units , but rarely need to use them.

Your boys are so darling. You must be super proud. I'm impressed.

The Christmas quilt is darling. I love the simplicity and the pattern in the pattern type of blocks. So cute.

Tonje said...

Congratulations to your two boys!
I just love the purse you made from dish towels a couple of posts down... what a great idea! I wonder if I can get hold of that magazine here in the UK... I want one of those purses too....

Karen said...

Congratulations on the graduation. I know you helped out big time on the education.
And the birthday cake looks sooooo good. Did you save me a piece?
Take some time to chill out for a while. Kind of hard to do with those high temperatures!
You have a good start on the new quilt. I have not seen that fabric line. Seems funny to be working with Christmas fabric when you are experiencing such hot weather.

Thimbleanna said...

Congrats to the graduate and the birthday boy. Now you need a long rest. I can't believe it's so hot out there -- stay inside! And you know...someone's gonna ask for that recipe LOL!!!
