Congratulations, Jackie!

Last weekend my little sister graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Here we are before the ceremony. Our smiles were a good deal less bright after the three hour outdoor ceremony during which we had no choice but to sit in the blaring sun and listen to name after name being called over the loud speaker. Of course, we would do it again with pleasure for our dear Jackie.
After the graduation, we went to lunch at Mimi's where the rest of the family (Joshua, Gary, and Jennille) joined in the celebration. (Jackie only got four tickets, so immediate family only were invited to the actual ceremony. She mailed Gary's, Dad's and mine. Dad got his right away and mine came on Friday, but Gary's never made it to his house. Darn those square-shaped envelopes! They should all be required to say on them that extra postage required.)
With our tummies full, we went back to my mom's house to relax and hang out. We ended the evening with a game of Dominoes that is to be continued.
We are so proud of you Jackie! Posted by Picasa

You can tell that Jackie graduated from a fashion school. I love the flower and necklaces she added to the normal graduation ensemble.

You should have seen the feather/jewel design on top of her hat and the writing on the back of her gown. It was a list of things that have happened during her college years. My mom was worried they wouldn't let her in with so much flair, but she was certainly not the only graduate with the idea to make her outfit unique!

too bad about Gary's ticket. I'm sure he was secretly relieved too, as I recall, you didn't even stay for your own, Erin. Or maybe it arrived and he lied?

Congrats to Jackie!
