what I have to look forward to when isabella turns 18 in about......... 9 years....

The cakes were finished Sunday morning...I was so happy how they turned out.


I am not very good at writing on the top of cakes...I tend to write going down hill. So I used my ol' fall back plan on cake decorating.
We went early to the open house to help my parents set up. We got many perks for going early....
450 egg rolls were made that day.....it took all morning to make, wrap, and fry. Oh so very delish. My step-mom makes the best egg rolls you have EVER had in your life.

We left my parents for a couple of hours because my nephew was also graduating that day..
Ryan, graduated from Burr Oak High School.
Which was pretty special because that was the same exact school my mom graduated from, back in 1962. We found her class picture framed on the wall.

There is an award the school gives for most outstanding & exceptional student in character. One is given as the "man-hood award" and the other is awarded to the woman. We were so excited for Ryan that he won the Man-hood award. He has a heart of gold. Ryan is a sweet sweet man and I was bursting with pride for him and all he has accomplished in high school.
Here is one tired little girl that did pretty well despite missing her nap for the day. She is holding the roses I was given by Ryan at the graduation.

After graduation we headed back to my parents were the open house was in full swing.....
my sister, Michele and her boyfriend, Lucas.

What a fun, fun day. But LONG. We got home about 10:30 that night and fell into bed. So glad we could be part of the day.

Quote of the day:
Jack: "I need the camera"
Me: "Why?"
Jack: "I need to take a picture because this is spectacular!!"

Nice job on the cakes. Very cute. Who needs to write when they can use a printer and make them more unique? Man, am I jealous about those egg rolls. It's true. No one in the entire world makes better egg rolls than Khankeo! Looks like it turned out well. Michelle looks beautiful. Congrats to John on the Manhood award!

I didn't realize your mom graduated from Burr Oak. I walked by her picture so many times and never looked up to say hello. From the pictures it looks like it was a BEAUTIFUL day! Love the cakes. They look so good.

Great cakes alive! That's a ton of them. They are all very cute. Great job being creative--I like it better than hand lettering on the cake!
