Matthew's Graduation

Matthew Graduated from High School

We had a graduation dinner for Matthew on Sunday night. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory with our family and closest friends. It was AWESOME to celebrate Matthew's accomplishment with our family.

I wanted to crawl under the table and hide when Matthew asked the balloon guy to make him a blow up doll ~ Oh boy...It was totally hilarious when the balloon guy said "Sure, no problem...but it will have to be the PG version". Here is what he made for Matthew. The back of the balloon is the funniest thing that I have seen in a very long time!

The back of Matthew's blow up doll...(Nice Thong Panties) Ha ha ha ha

On Monday, we went to the University of Portland Chiles Center and watched Matthew walk across the stage and receive his diploma! We are so proud of him.

On a side note....3 down, 3 to go!!

Congratulations Jeff and Francesca!

Jeff and Fran's Wedding

Bill and I with Jeff and Francesca

Last weekend we went to Jeff and Francesca's Wedding. It was held at the Queen Anne Victorian Mansion. It was such a beautiful wedding. Fran looked amazing and was such a beautiful bride. I have known Jeff since high school. He has been one of my dearest friends and I am so thankful that we were able to share this special day with them.

The weather was perfect for an outside wedding. We brought Courtney, Allie and Kerren
(Allie's friend) with us.

Allie's Home from College

Allie is home from her 1st year of college!
Congratulations sweet girl!

All packed up and ready to come home

Bill and I took a big road trip last weekend to pick Allie up from college. It's about a 5 hour trip each way, so it was about 10 hours in the car. Bill and I had so much fun singing songs, laughing, talking. It's was like a perfect 10 hour date! :o)

Allie had a good year at college. It was an adjustment for us and for her to be so far away from home, but Allie said that she thought it was good for her. She said that she really grew up a lot over the past year. However, she sure was ready to come home! And we are ready to have her home!

Allie's dorm is all cleaned out! It sure does look different!

Allie has so much money left on her meal card! Since we won't be able to get that money back, we decided to go to the food store and go on a shopping spree! It was really fun, just grabbing snacks and food to take home with us. Here is our big haul!

Our raid of the Southern Oregon University Store! Snacks for the summer!

Now that Allie is home, she is looking for a job and hanging out with friends that she has missed while away at college. She will be going to Portland State University next year!
