Pre school Graduation is possibly the cutest thing ever....and 5 Question Friday!

So.....THAT took long enough!  Blogger going down totally lost my post on G's graduation, didn't even save it as a draft (grrrr!).  So here's a short and sweet version along with a little 5QF. 

The graduation had a Candyland theme and thanks to some crafty mamas (not me) it looked awesome!  We all had a blast, there was plenty of family there to see G celebrate his accomplishments this year.  Although this is Graduation, he still has a whole year to go before Kindergarten...and I am so glad.  I just adore his teacher and she has done a great job with him.  His pre school graduation is basically all the kiddos singing cute songs, letting us know what they are proudest of this school year and they even sing the fight song from our local high school...that the hubby and I both graduated from.  She posts all sorts of cute stuff all over the place and we get to admire how genius our children truly are. 

When I grow up I want to be.....Bam Bam. Yep, that's my kid.

My sweet "graduate". 

The accomplishment he was most proud of: reading his "baggie" books that his teacher sends home in baggies along with his sight words...he has done awesome with this!

Receiving his certificate for Funniest Guy in Class....not surprised

 And now for 5 Question Friday!

Head over to My Little Life and link up....quick! 

1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none?

I usually wear flip flops so it's always NO socks but if I'm wearing "real" shoes......definitely a no show or ankle sock

2. Was your child's (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?!

My oldest was all me.....and he eventually agreed.  His middle name is his father's middle name though.
My middle.....I found her name in an Anne Geddes book, who I was obsessed with at the's usually a boy's name in England (because of the way we spell it) but I fell instantly in love.  Her middle name is my middle name.
Our youngest was probably the hardest....we had already used both of our middle names and we were trying to still give him a family name so I went with my mom's maiden name in honor of my grandparents and his middle name was in honor of my husband's grandfather.
Anyway....I usually had the veto power....but I definitely took all of his suggestions into consideration. 

3. What is your favorite type of weather?

I love, love, love the Spring weather in Texas.  70's and 80's, breezy and sunny.  I love summer too....but let's face it there is part of Texas summers where you feel like your face will melt off if you go outside.  And I'm not talking makeup.

4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust")

Probably 9am.  It's not too late and not too early.

5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet?

No way, Jose`.  I haven't even fully decided if I want to be buried or cremated yet.


  1. My son and I love Austin, and one summer we were there and he described the weather like this, "Mom, you know when you lean into the oven to take something out, but you recoil from the heat? Well, this is the oven, but there's no place to pull back too." Well said.

  2. what a cute themed event!

    (I want to be donated to science when I die. I want to be donated to a body farm.)

  3. Very cute self portrait! Very fun too! I'm here from Relax and Surf - hope you can stop by soon to return the follow.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
