Dangers in decorating!

As many of you know my daughter Kaylee is graduating....yeah!

So we decorate....everything!

Did I mention that Kay is my mini me?

She loves decorating about as much as I do.

I  made this banner for her and hung it up before awards night.

She came be' boppin' in  her lil car...

sees the house all decorated ...

gets all excited...

and hits the back end of my husbands truck!

What cha gonna do...ha!

Reason #463  why she is not getting a new car for graduation.

All in all it was a wonderful awards night.

She recieved two honors.
An academic endorsment and a STAR award!

Here she is receiving her cord.

She is so passionate about everything...ha!
I was so glad that my sister and nephew Blaise came to watch.
Blaise is graduating with honors this year as well.

So proud of her!!

Now to get my sick self to clean this house today.

We are having a party tonight and grauduation will follow Wednesday.

Lord give me strength~


  1. Congrats to Kaylee's graduation...A very emotional time...I remember when Nick graduated a few yrs ago...I was a basket case...

    As for the car? Well, Kaylee I think you are out of luck...:) Didn't you just lock the keys in them a month ago? You remind me of myself...lol

    I can only concentrate on the most important things like decorated porches...lol

  8. AWWWW...this is so sweet. I love it. We just got back from our son's graduation (middle one) and I got sick too. Must be from all the excitement, and no sleep! Hahha...
    Congratulations on the awards and honors. YOu deserve to be very happy and proud. To celebrate...drink lots of orange juoice and call the doctor!

  10. So very proud of K.
    Really enjoyed sharing in her moment.
    Hope you are feeling better soon,see ya tonight.

  11. Congrats to your daughter. I will be there next year and I can't even think about it yet. I know that this year will fly by and he will be flying the nest but I know that it will be an exciting time:)

    Hope you feel better.

  12. Oh, wow! Congrats to Kaylee. My Preston is graduating this year, too, but his graduation's not til 5/28. I'd be freaking out if it were this week!

    I so wish I could be there--I'd clean your house for you! You could sit in bed and give me orders. I'd dust and vacuum and mop like crazy. (And I'd take photos with my phone as I went along--just to have pictures of all your lovely creations!)

    Hope you feel better soon! You're such a great mom!

  13. Congrats to the grads and the parents that lived through it! We've been there three times and loved each one.

    How is your husband? Recovered? He looks good in the photo. What a horrid experience to deal with. Praying for a complete healing and a healthy, safe summer for you and yours :)

  14. Congratulations to Kaylee (and you!) on her graduation! Even sick you look fantastic ~ enjoy the festivities :)

  15. Congratulations to both your daughter and nephew!!!!! I know that y'all are crazy busy with all the graduation prep. We were there last year and it was non-stop. My husband and I kept saying...if it is like this with graduation what on earth will the wedding be like?????

    Hope you are feeling better today! Just tell your body there will be time to be sick...later!

  16. Congrats to Kaylee's graduation! Really enjoyed sharing in her moment. Even sick you look fantastic!
