Marissa's Party

Despite what became a torrential downpour, Marissa's graduation party was a shining success.

Our family is pretty attached to Marissa.
I tried situating everyone so we wouldn't look what we were in a police line-up but the going was a little tough. Aaron is smiling for the picture{thank heavens}but during my anti police line-up speech he did alot of, and I quote, "rolling of the eyes, rolling of the eyes". I just make his life so hard.

Please note the black pearl and diamond bracelet. My friend John and I gave it to her along with a silver and yellow necklace. The yellow fit her perfect as yellow is her current favorite color, as well as the color of her prom dress.

During the graduation ceremony last night, I re-realized{how do you go about saying that, anyway?}one of the downsides of being home schooled was that I never got a picture taken in a cap and gown. I didn't do a graduation ceremony like some of my friends, so I wasn't about to spend $40 plus on it just for a picture even if I did want to. So today, three years after graduating high school, I achieved one of my goals: I had a real graduation picture complete with cap and gown taken. I was going to crop the picture more but didn't when I realized keeping the flag in the picture would be perfect because I had a patriotic themed graduation party. I love when things line up unexpectedly like that!

Hope you all have a great weekend! :)
