What a wonderful day of celebration with a great group of people who came to celebrate the big day with us. Lots of love all around...
From a little kindergartener.....
To a lovely, talented young woman.... we are so very proud of her.....
It had rained the day of graduation so everyone had to squeeze inside a hot, un air conditioned gym in the South.... our makeup just ran off and our hair...well let's not even talk about that, lol. But the day I wouldn't have missed it for anything! So proud of Hayley and all she has been through and done to get so far!
So happy to have my dad there and I know my mom was watching from heaven... she was missed so deeply that day. My dad had an older video recording that they had sent to Hayley a few years ago to congratulate her for something else and he sent it to her that morning. We were all in tears..... Just hearing her voice again...
Our niece Neve came down with my sister and my brother in law. :-)
Gabby our other niece was here!!
Jerry's twin brother Garry brought crabs down from Maryland for Hayley's birthday/ graduation celebration. He gets them for her each year!
She was a very happy girl, lol. :-)
Garry and his wife Lori and stepdaughter Kate. We had to set up some extra tables to fit everyone so they kinda went over into our guest room :-)
When she was little and had her parties growing up we used to get them for her all the time.
So happy to have some of our family come and share the day with us as we don't get to see them often. Many friends too but they weren't all in this one. Tons of pictures I will cherish always, but wanted to post a few of her special day and thank everyone who made time to come and be with her on her special day!!! Much love to you all!!
