The banquet was a fun and beautiful event last night. It was held in a beautiful hotel. We dressed up and looked pretty spiffy, though I don't know what was happening with my bangs...sometimes my hair has a mind of its own. Sorry...I digress. Back to the banquet.
Emily and her dear friend Chelsea. Aren't they lovely girls? Their dresses were so cute, Emily's had big red roses around the bottom.
Grandma and Grandpa had to get a photo with their girls. All my girls' friends call them Grandma and Grandpa. My Dad is very proud of that suit too. He has owned it for over twenty years and it still fits.
The grad colors are turquoise (teal), silver and white. It was very pretty with teal balloons, and silver and white and teal decorations on the tables.
Perfect accessories for the table - little packages of kisses tied up with teal ribbon. I still have 4 out of 5 kisses in my purse. I was thinking of sharing them with my kids, but I may just have to eat them while I am out grocery shopping today. Fortification, you know.
The food was fabulous. I had the Chicken Florentine - which is in the photo above, and Tim had the Beef ( I don't recall what it was 'called').
The service was great, too.
This is not a very clear photo but it is of the amazing chocolate cake we had for dessert. I feel sorry for those who don't like chocolate....
See what I have to live with? Don't you feel sorry for me? Crazy folk, them Rabe's. Since I am only one by marriage I feel free to excuse myself from any responsibility for the craziness. Tim would, of course, disagree!
Here now, that's better! She is her Daddy's little package, all grown up into quite the lovely young woman. He's just a tad proud of her. Me? Well, she is a bit of a mini me, so I am forced to say she is pretty wonderful. Humility, it's a beautiful thing.
