One summer we went home for a visit and my mom threw an "Every Holiday Party" for all the holidays we miss out on. She had fireworks, egg hunt, birthday cupcakes, Secret Santa, you name it. That was the best!
I love when schools allow parents to bring homemade goodies. It's so much more personal! Although, Connor ALWAYS chose Krispy Kreme donuts. LOL!

Oh my goodness!!! We're really hoping Kayla, Luke & the kids come for Connor's graduation at the end of May. If they do, I'm TOTALLY doing this!!!
