The day finally arrived. My #1 nef was graduating from high school. It was a beautiful, sunny, warm day. All the graduates looked so handsome in their coordinating navy school blazers, white trousers and matching pink Vineyard Vines ties.
The man of the hour!
This pretty lady is Miss Ellie who is BIL's sista and an old friend of mine. We were classmates at Katie Gibbs after we graduated from college. The handsome gent pictured is Mr. Bill - BIL's BFF.
Nef #2 arriving fresh from his exam with his proud parents.
Holding onto his diploma for dear life!
Here comes trouble!!
Off to a beautiful lunch hosted by the school. And then... the dessert party down in the field at Sista and BIL's home.
Sista and BIL setting up for the guests. #2 Nef doing some much needed taste testing.
Sista whipped up these yummy cupcakes and then made these adorable signs with the name of the graduate's college destination.
Make your own strawberry shortcakes.
Sista's "slutty brownies" were a huge hit. This plate was full 20 seconds before I took this pic!
A great time had by all!
Hope your day is filled of sweets!
Wiley and I agreed... it's not easy being party girls like us!
Prize Day was held the day before graduation at nef #1's school. It was a lovely ceremony that highlighted the accomplishments of the graduates. My nef earned the honor of Cum Laude, and just about every other honor within the particular subject areas. Not that I'm braggin' or nuttin.'
It was warm but the sun was beginning to set.
Headmaster remarks. yada yada yada
Proud family minus one. Nef #2 was taking an exam at his school.
Every time nef received an honor he had to stand up.
Each time Nef stood up, Sista and I exchanged sly smiles knowing that those would be OUR genes responsible for the honors.
Nef is thinking how lucky he is that he hit the DNA gene jackpot.
