A Big Night

It was a big night in our house last night as Alex prepared for his grade eight graduation ceremonies.  There were shaving lessons to be given, and hair styling to be performed and a tie to be adjusted to put the finishing touches on this:

It's hard for me to believe that this tall handsome fellow was once my puffer-belly baby.  Well, maybe not so hard, he was a beautiful baby after all.

And now you know why I was working so hard to finish the Aeolian shawl.  It was so I could stand proudly next to my boy for this:

It was so much fun to fuss over my son and I loved how he enjoyed his big night.  His good friends were there and we re-capped their Halloween shot:

Look out world, here they come!


  1. Ohhh all-most all grown up. Very handsome all of you.

  2. He is the epitome of sharp and you are the epitome of proud. Congrats!

  3. My first comment has disappeared. That is one good looking family. What a wonderful night it must have been. Congratulations.

  4. Hey, y'all clean up good. :-) Happy summer!

    I have to agree with livnletlrn--y'all do clean up good! Isn't it shocking how quickly they end up taller than we are? I keep reminding mine that I didn't give them permission to be that tall, and for some reason they laugh at me.

    Your shawl looks stunning on you. Gorgeous work. I've fallen down the Aeolian rabbit hole, too, and am having a blast.

    Hope everyone had a wonderful grad evening.


  6. Such great photos; I'm sure he enjoyed himself and you were bursting with pride! Love his white jacket!
