Alex moved up a few rows for the best shot possible
She waited for 10 minutes with test shots taken and approved
As they announced Caroline’s name this was the view.
I wanted to rip out Big Bertha’s hair by the roots
get a  brush to Big Bertha’s blown out hairdo – oh it was a cheap wig!!
I am not just being mean
Big B’s family behaved badly the whole night and…
that is not okay

Two of my sisters (# 3 and #4) were able to make the trip and share
this important day with us.  Thanks Aunt Jana and Aunt Jack!

Afterwards, the family shared delicious food, sweet memories and
lots of love and laughs with Caroline at Provino’s Italian Restaurant.

We Love You, Peanut!

  6. Big congrats to your daughter Rhonda. Happy New Year. I'm just getting back in the groove.

  7. Rhonda,

    Congrats to your beautiful daughter on her college graduation. I hate when people are so self absorbed at events and don't extend common courtesy to others in attendance. I would have told her to sit down. (BTW, I call my daughter, Peanut.)
    Wishing you and yours a happy, healthy 2012!

    Your Friend,
