Here are my 2 girls at Lauren's graduation!
Lauren received her Master's degree in Accounting and will be working at a public accounting firm, starting January 5th. We are so proud of you Lauren.

Here are Lauren and Adelaide with my dear friend Sherian. She is like my girls "other Mother". Without her help, I would have never pulled off Lauren's graduation party. Thanks so much Sherian, you're the greatest!!!

Doesn't the table look beautiful!!! I had so much fun fixing the food and Sherian helped me set up the table and get everything just perfect. We got lots of good reviews on the food.

Our menu included: Grilled beef tenderloin
roasted shrimp w/cocktail sauce
grilled lemon chicken kabobs w/satay dip
mini crab cakes w/remoulade sauce
bruschetta on toasted French rounds
baked dill havarti cheese in pastry
crudite & dip
spinach and artichoke dip
cheese wafers

Here is my favorite part of the party, the dessert table!!! We had a chocolate fountain with pound cake and fruit for dipping. Sherian made hand made chocolates: chocolate covered cherries, coconut and peanut butter balls and millionaires. We also had 2 kinds of Christmas cookies. The chocolate fountain was a hit.

Lauren's graduation day on December 18th was a very special day for our family. The ceremony was at 10:00 am that morning and lasted for 3 hours! We went to lunch afterwards with all our family and had a great time celebrating and being together. We had the party that night at our home for about 40 people. My house was all decorated for Christmas and looked very festive. We had a wonderful time with family and friends! It was certainly Lauren's special day and we were so very proud of her and all that she has accomplished.
Best of luck at your new job on Monday. We love you!!!
