While in Brookings doing some second hand and antique shopping with my aunt and sister, we came across a dress. My sister really liked the color and the texture of the fabric so she tried it on. It didn't have a top or much of a back and she was a little discouraged.
|BEFORE: Front and back|
|AFTER: Front and back|
So she liked it, and I was actually happy about how it turned out. I never thought it would turn out the way it did. :)
Her graduation coffee went wonderfully. No tornadoes, no rain, no brownish scary sky... The day was sunny and warm and for the most part, everyone was in a good mode. A wonderfully sweet cousin of ours happened to arrive at our house that morning and came with us to the Community Center to help us get ready. We are ever so thankful for her help! We teased her because last year she came to our house and we ended up canning peaches all day. And we had many, many boxes of them too. She, as patient as ever, joined right in without a word of complaint and a smile on her face. She's a blessing!
Anyway, we got the usual family pictures, resulting from the boys that when they graduate, they ARE NOT having a graduation coffee or anything. "We can have water. It will be the "Watering Hole." Water and Mountain Dew." or something to this extent was heard being forcefully emitted from one of them. We all got a good laugh.
We got home and everyone was tired. No one wanted to unload the vehicles but we took out what needed to be kept cold and left everything else where it was until the next day. She opened her gifts and cards and I recorded them. Then, she got a crazy scheme up her sleeves and I was so tired, I went along with it. Here is the result:
And last of all, a picture of her. A good one that captures her so well.
