Happy Graduation to Mitchy!

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

My parents are officially (almost) empty nesters! My little brother, Mitch, graduated from Lassiter High School on Friday - woop, woop! Seeing as he's the favorite child in the Reaves family (whatever...), the entire Reaves  clan came into town. Yep. All of them.

Before the chaos (aka family) arrived, we were able to attend a couple of Mitchell's graduation events.

Senior Night on the Green


Adam and I also attended Lassiter's Senior Night on the Green... in 2006. We decided to recreate the moment - ha!


How handsome did Mitchell look at his Baccalaureate? Such a stud.


On Thursday, the whole famdamily arrived! My dad wanted to get a big family picture taken for his birthday, so after a cocktail or 5 we all headed down to the neighborhood lake and put on our best smiles. I think they are going to turn out fabulous and will be sure to post them on the blog when they're ready! Here's a few I took on my camera...

The original Reaves siblings: Frances, Dad and Nancy


Mitch, Me and Jeff


After pictures, we headed back to my 'rents house and surprised them with a mini anniversary party. They celebrated their 25th in April, and we decided to do a little somethin' somethin' for them while everyone was in town. We ordered them a cute cake and Jeff made them an adorable slide show of pictures of them through the years. 

I made them this little gem that I found on Pinterest. The three maps show where they had their first date, where they got engaged and where they got married. It took a lot longer than a thought, but it wouldn't have even been possible if I didn't have a handy man like Adam around. He had to custom build the frame.


Cheers to 25 more!


And now, a photo dump of Mitchell's graduation and graduation party...



Adam made him this pretttty awesome beer pong table for graduation, and of course the entire family had to play. (It was also my dad's birthday on Friday. Talk about a weekend of celebrations!)




For his graduation party, Jeff, Katie, Adam and I created Mitchapalooza shirts. And then we took over the photo booth, of course!





HAPPY GRADUATION, MITCHELL! We're all so proud of you!
