Graduation Photos

 - by Gretel

Here are some pictures from the big day this weekend.  The weather was perfect, though I didn’t escape a little bit of sunburn.  We had a great time, and Ilyana made a few new friends as well.

Thanks to Jerry and Laurel for driving down for the day, and Mom too for all the help.

Pre-graduation Fun

 - by Gretel

So, I graduate on Sunday from my second Masters program (Management and Organizational Behavior for those who are interested).  I’ve gotten a few fun gifts from important people in my life that I just had to share.  Mind you, I don’t feel done yet, since I have a paper to do, but I am starting to get ready to enjoy the party!

Beautiful sunflowers from Sue K.

Lovely roses from Jeffrey.

Lily-of-the-valley from Ilyana :).

Grandma and Ilyana decorating.

Putting the finishing touches on.

Thanks everyone!!

Pictures Update

 - by Gretel

It’s been a while since we’ve updated.  Life has been busily running along, and we finally have a chance to catch our breath.  Grandma Ann is in this week, so we’ve been having fun.  Here are some pictures we’ve saved up from a few weeks!

(Yes.  She is matching letters.  About a year early.)

I am smart…and it is now time for juice.

Behold, the triumphant return of Darth Giggles.

I’m helping with laundry.


(Yes, she does sleep like that.)
