Congrats Aunt Nicole!!

Okay - so I am behind!! I guess we have been super busy and I am just now getting all caught up! 2 weeks ago, my youngest sister Nicole graduated from Nursing School!! We were not able to make the actual graduation as it was the same time as Claire's dress rehearsal for her recital, but we did attend the Pinning Ceremony the night before. So here are a bunch of pictures of the kids and the College Grad!!

The kids were all dressed up....so of course we took pictures =)!!
Owen reading the program at the Pinning Ceremony =)...Claire maybe a little bored??Daddy and Claire after the ceremony..Poppy and Owen...Our crew...Nicole and Aaron (Congratulations to Aaron too - he graduated that weekend too!)Nikki with the kidsUs with the graduate...Owen was done with pictures...Me, Tara, Nicole and Mom with ClaireAt Dinner that nightI had to throw this in - we had to leave late that night and drive home, in a storm! As well, I had to wet and roll Claire's hair before we left as her recital was the next day...she had 36 rollers in her hair!! She is such a trooper...Owen needed his pic taken too =).
Nicole - We are so proud of you!! You have such a bright future ahead of you! We are soooooo happy you are back home again and we cannot wait to crash at your new place =)!! Love you!!!!

Congrats to Nicole!! Love all the pictures (LOL, and Owen deciding halfway through them that he was done with pics!! haha)

I bet it will be so nice to have her close by now. John is still living in Dallas, and has for almost four years now. Can you believe it?! It's sad because he's only been able to see Jonah a handful of times his entire life! Every time he comes home, Jonah has aged so much and has to get to know him all over again. We miss him like crazy!!!
