Jeff's Graduation

Last week my nephew Jeff graduated from BYU (Go Cougars!) it was a great weekend, not only did we have the fun of celebrating his accomplishment I also got to spend time with my parents. Here is the handsome graduate and his proud parents.
My adorable parents with their grandson. You will notice that the graduation gowns are navy blue, back in the dear dead days when I graduated they were black. I guess somebody decided a change to the school colors would be a nice way to update the look.
Onward and upward, the future waits.

Isn't he just the cutest kid ever, I am so lucky to be the aunt of a bunch of attractive nieces and nephews.

We had a great dinner at Rodney and Marja's house to celebrate the graduation. This is a picture of the graudation cake, I couldn't resist taking a picture of the little decorative diploma that sported a "Made in China" sticker. It was especially funny because of the engineering graduates that were honored there were quite a few who were double majors in Chinese.
That evening Mom, Dad, and I went to the wedding reception of my cousin's daughter. One of Uncle Robert's grand daughters, of course she had no idea who I was because I hadn't seen her since she was a little girl. But it was a fun occasion to see some members of the family. This is mom with one of my cousins.
See what did I tell you, I am the aunt of some really cute kids, and Matt now that he is home from his mission can actually enjoy the "scenery" at a place like BYU.
A proud Grandma giving a hug to the new graduate.
You can't tell, but I promise Jeff is getting is diploma on the stage.
Dad with his omnipresent book, he always has it with him, just in case he has to kill some time. We have similar pictures of him at my wedding reception and at my nephew Craig's reception as well. It makes things easy if we are looking for daddy, we just find a quiet corner and the chance is he will be sitting there with his book.
Waiting for the festivities to start. Don't we all look so enthused to be there an hour early.
