whew! what a weekend!

August 5, 2008

I’m still recovering, thus the late post…but Alan’s graduation was one we won’t soon forget. You may remember my pickle post. Well, those 35 paper pickles were put to good use:

He got some great tips for when he finds himself in a pickle. I think the most popular was “Call Dad…”

Pam whipped up some amazing cupcakes and I had fun making toppers for them. (This is what happens when you post your personal photos on myspace…)

We didn’t think there was any way people would consume that many cupcakes…but I happened to snap a shot of the last two cupcakes before their inevitable consumption…

as you can see, people were having mucho fun…

Aunt Pam was the karaoke queen…she even got Lee Anne in on a few tunes…

I finally got my ride on the Harley…

Just before we left on Sunday, Vayda and Lee Anne donned their Harley gear for the camera… Vayda matches the Harley color scheme so perfectly…if FCB decides not to employ her as a mascot, maybe Harley Davidson will?…I mean, she even has a little black tongue! (and of course, she’s well versed in doggie tricks)

(Vayda was a little jealous that Lee Anne’s shirt sparkled…and thus refused to take a decent photo)

Anywho…I’d love to see photos from others in attendance…I didn’t man my camera throughout the night like a should have…so please email me…(Granny Pat, I must have that pic of Nick and I…I think it’s the only decent picture I was in all night!)


In work related news…I’ll have my hands in paint all day at the Pirate’s House…an update will most likely come tomorrow. Oh and I finally finished my two portraits….although I’ll have to wait until the oil paint dries to post the final works…back to the madness!

    Love the pickle jar, love the cupcakes, love it all! Looks like I missed the party of the decade. Girl…you know I would have been a kareoke queen with Pam! haha

    Awww. That’s so cute! (The pickles.)

    And – good old Skynyrd! If I had a dollar for every time I heard that song back home.. I’d be a gazillionaire. Those cupcakes are a cute idea too.

    Actually, you really can’t go wrong with a cupcake in any situation, no matter what you do to it.

    Looks like y’all had a blast. Love the pickle idea!

  4. Bekah – you would have totally rocked the mike…I do confess to singing “I will survive” and “Love Shack”…

    Robin – my dad is a die hard Skynyrd fan…he hitch-hiked all the way to Atlanta once to see them play…

    Vickie – I’m still recovering…and yes, the pickles were fantastic…lol!

    I like Harley Davidson too.
    It is classic motorcycle.
