I'm not always the worst event photographer.
But I was on Saturday.
By the time the Graduation party started I was physically spent and then came to socializing.
There was no time to be on the ball.
This is why you should not be your child's wedding photographer, I guess.
On the menu was Lou Malnati's pizza and their famous Lou's salad. It was SO good.
Drinks were BYOB and I picked up some Spotted Cow in Wi. to bring down for the disadvantaged Chicagoans. We also had Coke, Diet Dr. Pepper and Diet Squirt.
Katie thought I was goofy to buy Squirt...but it was a hit :op
I threw a few bags of chips on the table and we are all set.
For dessert, Emma's dear friends Megan and Whitney made banana pudding. I loved the addition of the blueberries and strawberries and raspberries.
It was really a great little party.
Mary Z and Kathyb were lovely to come to the party!
Thank you dear friends.
My niece Lindsay and her little girl Kate came celebrate with Emma!
Thank you Lindsay! What a delight to have you at the party!
I was happy to meet many of Emma's friends from her internship at Trilogy and from her counseling classes.
The sun shone bright and hot from 2:00 til 6:00.
The rain and thunder rolled in at 7:45 and the guys who were still at the party brought everything in for us. It was perfect. Thanks guys.
Stress be gone!
Dear Elisabeth Elliot died yesterday. She taught me many things thru her radio ministry, books and tapes.
She is home.
Encourage one another,
Because of Elisabeth Elliot I started this blog in 2004.
She said that older women should encourage the younger women to love their husbands and children. (Titus 2)
She encouraged me to encourage.
Rest in beautiful, perfect peace dear Elisabeth.
