Graduation-Part 2

This is long overdue, I know, but at least I finally got around to sharing! :)
Our Graduation Reception:

The Saturday that we had the reception was bright and sunny…a fact that we were grateful for since the reception was held outdoors in  Mam and Pop’s (our grandparents) backyard/garden. They put so much hard work and time into their yards and also into the party…thank y’all!!

Erin and Elisabeth,
Pop and I were thankful to have the opportunity to give you a Garden Graduation Reception. Having the privilege of being your grandparents has been a wonderful blessing...a double blessing...

We love you each dearly and know you are destined to continue to bring sunshine wherever God carries you...

Blessings,
Mam and Pop
