Happy Weekend!

Lots to cram into one post so here goes!!!
We are off to my brother in laws college graduation this weekend! He is the first from my husbands side of the family to graduate with a four year degree! We are so excited and proud! These two pictures are of my grandparents from when they graduated many years ago! They were both teachers! Actually my grandfather was a professional boy scout for 40 years! More on that later!
So, we are off for the weekend and that kid with the crazy hair from the last post gets to hang out with Nanny and Poppy! He is so excited!! During craft time Friday morning he kept asking how to spell stuff and since I was not really paying attention, just cleaning and getting ready to head out I did not notice what he was making until he handed me this! Isn't it sweet!!
He brought this home from school for me! His hand print flower!! So of course I had to use it for Pink Saturday! This little poem is the same one I gave my mom when I was little!

"Sometimes you get discouraged, Because I am so small, and always leave my fingerprints, on furniture and walls, But everyday I'm growing...I will be grown someday and all those tiny fingerprints will surely fade away, So here's a little hand print, just so you can recall. Exactly how my fingers looked when I was very small!!" This was last years present! I just love it!!!! It's hanging in my living room!

So I hope you all have a great Mother's Day on Sunday!

See you when I get back!!

Have a fun trip. Thanks so much for all the goodies. I got your package in Saturday's mail. With my pc drama I forgot to send you an email, but I did remember to take photos of everything. Loved the PIGS.
