~ a little trumpet blowing ~

This week we had a

celebration~jubilation

in our home

we gathered up the

ruffles

party hats

noisemakers


to salute

a milestone...

a journey which has only begun




a Grade 8 Graduation

...no more middle school for my daughter Sydney

it's off to high school




we had sumptuous cake ...

{she is a ballerina...hence the topper}





yummy refreshments....







fabulously fun party favours...

we

yelled

screamed

and totally embarrassed

her when she went up to get her diploma

{that's what families are for...right?}


What did you celebrate this week?

What an awesome post...love it! Thank you so much for the visit, it allowed me to find you and I'm so glad I did. I'm definitely adding you to my blog roll. I celebrated the memory of my dad, my dad passed suddenly two years ago and I miss him terribly BUT I'm so thankful that I had the most awesome dad that taught me so much! I'm off now to peruse through the rest of your blog!

Hugs,
Karyn

What a deliciously scrumptious blog, one of those that speaks to me right off, stirs the inspiration, makes me want to dash off and start doing things...

Love from the UK to you
