The Best Weekend That Just Keeps Getting Better!

We celebrated my Abby's graduation from Purdue.
My baby now has a degree in elementary education.
We had an all girl party at our favorite restaurant/bar.
We had so much fun!

My 56th birthday
It was a great day. My family made it that way.

My mom's 85th birthday party.
Look at this lovely lady.
Would you ever guess she was 85?
We all worked together to make her an awesome scrapbook of her whole family.
She loved it.

At one point, she loved it so much it made her cry.
But lucky for us, it also made her laugh.

Here she is with some of the great grandkids.
And here she is with my Jack. He is her only great grandson.

Abby got a job!
It's a medical leave, but it's a paying job and it's a start.
We are so proud of her and love her so much!!
Not a bad weekend at all!
