A Big Weekend!

This weekend was packed for our families!! This Saturday morning my sister Karen graduated with her Master's degree in Library Sciences from the University of Kentucky. Rod has twin cousins, Alex and Jarod. Alex graduated with his Bachelor's degree in Biology from Northern Kentucky University and Jarod graduated with his Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from the University of Kentucky. Saturday afternoon, Rod's niece Ana received her First Communion.

Saturday evening my family all got together to celebrate Mother's Day with my Mom. We went out to dinner at a Mexican restaurant we love, then had dessert at my sister's.

  1. What an amazing weekend! And a fabulous family! But can I say that 2 of your sisters look like they're 12! And one is getting married? I had to do a double take on that one! Too cute! Love the pics and LOVE your big family! love that your parents have so many grandkiddos! I'm hoping with 6 kiddos we'll be in the same boat some day! Happy belated Mother's Day to a fabulous lady!
