Memorial Day Holiday Break

Memorial Day Holiday Break

We are having a great time this weekend with my family (Babs-my mom, Laura-Sis and her husband Scott along with my nephew Jake and Jenna my niece.) Lots of laughs, fake sneezes, whoopee cushion fart humor, elbows rubs and fun. 🙂 Al’s parents (Jim and Theresa) also joined us to celebrate Nick’s graduation from high school held at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center.

Burning questions dear readers???????

*Did Nick pull a fire alarm at the graduation?


*Was there any hand flapping as he made his way across the stage?

*Did that cap and tassel stay on his head? 🙂

*Just what did happened after Nick was handed his diploma?

Tune in next Monday to find out! Blessing to our troops and veterans today.
