Monday my husband and I planted our garden. (That really did have anything to do with the graduation but it need to be done).
Tuesday morning my mother-in-law and daughter-in-law came over to wrap silverware and prepare the menu for the party. After writing everything down we had to come up with the amounts I would need in order to feed everyone coming. Tuesday evening, my husband and I went shopping for all the non-perishable item we could buy to save time at the end of the week.
Wednesday I pulled out the rest of the pictures and memorable items to put on the card table.
Thursday I cooked 15 pounds of Hamburger for the taco salad and I boiled 76 eggs for the seven layer salad.
Friday I decorated the church, rolled all the meat and put the cheese trays together, with the help of my Mother-in-law.
Saturday morning we put together all the salad's and then it was off to church for the party.
Sunday was graduation day; after the ceremony I had all the people that came to the graduation over to my house for left overs. After we were all done, we prepared plates up for our guest to take home.
It is now all over and I am on to getting my husband and boy's things together for a Father and son wrestling camp they will be attending Thursday thru Monday of this week.
Here are some of the pictures from the party and graduation ceremony. I have so many of them it was hard to decide which picture to download. I tried to pick out some that would show a little bit of what we did to prepare for the party.

My sweet baby Jenna! (Everyone says she looks just like her Nan, (ME) Hee, Hee wishful thinking, right?)
My niece (Kendra) turned 16 on Monday so we made her a cake and sang to her after the graduation ceremony on Sunday.
This is Aaron with his Grandma (My husband's mom) This is again at my house after the graduation ceremony. (My boy loves to goof around, that silly smile just kills me)
I didn't have this picture when I posted this blog. My son was supposed to take pictures of all the family at the graduation party, instead he took pictures of our church friends. This is a picture of my Step-dad, my Mom, my two adopted sisters, Aaron and my son Bret.
