Oh Happy Day!

Yesterday was a big day! A very special guy graduated from High School.
The ceremony was at the Special Events Center in Garland which is about 10 minutes from our house. A very impressive arena which seats over 7,000. The sound system is excellent and view from all areas is really good. They have a large screen over the stage so you can see the speakers and students up close. It was a great ceremony and only lasted one hour even with almost 500 graduates.

We celebrated with dinner at the country club in Oakridge.

My nephew Chris and his beautiful wife Carrie came to the graduation and picked up a very special lady to join us for dinner.

A little wobbly after her heart attack on Monday and stent surgery on Tuesday, she still wanted to be a part of this special day! My mother is amazing. I love these guys so very much.
Congratulations "Big Guy". We are so proud of you!


  1. Great pictures of everyone! Wish we could have been there too! Congrats to Jackson!

    So glad Shirley felt like going along!

  2. Congratulations to your son, Kathy! You have two great-looking kids!

    Mike sent me an e-mail you'd sent him about Aunt Shirley. Please let her know that I'm thinking of and praying for her. She'll always hold a special place in my heart!

  3. YAY! Congrats to my "little" cousin! Wish we could have been there. Give Grandma our love, hope to come visit soon.
