Off they go ....

Good morning Blogland Neighborhood! Well the past two weeks have flown by .... lots of stuff going on here at MBIAJ Headquarters with my Moonbeams Boys Evan and Matt. They've grown up while I wasn't looking (or pretended not to see) and, well, here we are, and off they go ......



......to the prom. (Evan's prom was this past Friday night. Here he is in his VERY bright tux with his VERY understanding date and good friend Emily)




...and here are Evan and Emily with their good friend Tyler. Evan and Tyler have had these goofy tuxes planned since their freshman year .... their version of the tuxes from the movie "Dumb and Dumber" with a little Sponge Bob and Patrick thrown in! (and I must say Tyler's date was also a very understanding gal!)

And that's not all that went on this past Friday. Moonbeams college Boy Matt (who finished up his 3rd year at Penn State 2 weeks ago).......


...packed up his car with his dirtbike and mountain bike (and some clean underwear and socks he assured me) and ....
waived bye bye to his old mom to head south to Florida for the summer for his first grown up internship/job ....



Off he goes ..... (sob)








So..... now that a couple of days have gone by and I've medicated myself with enough chocolate to sink a ship, it's time to get myself together for the next couple of months ..... more stuff .... Evan's All Night Pary (for the senior class given by the parents) is this Friday. Then we have a belated 50th birthday celebration for my sis, Evan's high school graduation, niece's graduation from college/nursing school, Matt's 21st birthday in June and my other niece's wedding at the end of June ! (and you just KNOW I have delusions of grandeur about all the sewing/quilting projects my unrealistic other self has planned for all of these milestone special occasions! Including the apron that did NOT get finished for the bridal shower that was YESTERDAY for the niece who is getting married in June .... oh well ...)
Guess I better get busy!

Be back soon!
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

LOVE that those two guys carried out their plans for those over-the-top tuxes at the prom! What kind of internship is your son undertaking? I'm thinking you might be going to FL for his b'day (or is he flying home for it)?

Your list of activities and milestones sounds remarkably similar to my own! I juat had our youngest's graduation, and we are in full prep mode for her graduation party a week from tomorrow. Then 2 weeks after that I am hosting a bridal shower here for the daughter of a close friend. Prom and all the other senior activities are behind us, but they were all so much fun!! Be sure to enjoy your events; don't stress too much about the projects that don't get finished...I tell you this in an effort to convince myself to do the same thing!
