Jessie's Graduation Party

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  Ours was jam packed!  We had a party at a neighbors house on Sat evening and that was fun, even if we were standing under our patio umbrella with a fire near by for 2 hours in the rain!  The food was good and so was the company.

Sunday was my niece, Jessie's, graduation party.  She is the person I made the layer cake QAL quilt for.  We arrived at my SIL and BIL's house just as the tornado sirens were going off, so we gathered up all the photos of Jessie and headed for the house. Standing in the driveway this is what I saw when I looked one way (the back of the house) and then the other (their backyard).

That's my SIL in the coral coloured dress. They went all out for this party. They had a candy table for the kids to mix and match candy that they could put in little bags to take with them, there were 2 slushie machines, a man playing guitar, more food than anyone could consume and this fruit and veggie table that was amazing!

One of the cutest things was my youngest niece "catching" rain drops in her water bottle and then drinking them. This was the best I could do because every time she saw the camera she would hide behind her mom! She is adorable!!

The best part was being able to give Jessie her quilt...FINALLY!! She is such a sweetie and I was so excited to give it to her. She is off to MSU (YEAH!!) just like both of her parents and they could not be more excited for her.

I did manage to remember to take a pic of the label too. I decided to put it in the basket. What do you think?

WOW! what a most excellent party!! That house reminds me of the one from Home Alone!! Very Homey and Beautiful!! Your SIL must be very good at entertaining. The little girl catching raindrops was precious! Children are so innocent!
Your quilt is wonderful, very colorful and youthful looking. I take it MSU is Michigan State?? Down here in the south, MSU stand for MIssissppi State.
