Proud parents

School year has ended and our little boy graduated and had their school's recognition day few days back. It was only me and my husband who were able to attend to my son's special day. His two grandmas both want to go with us but due to some reason they weren't able to. So hubby and I made a plan. If Jared gets an award, I will be the one to join him on stage while he takes our photo. He has some kind of a stage freight haha!

Then it happened. Our little one got two medals, one is for being an Outstanding pupil and the other one, most diligent.

After all the medals were given, the teacher announced that there was another set of awards. Jared and hubby have an award too - Best father and son tandem during one of their school activities. I thought hub was really deserving as he was so active in participating on the games :) And so he had his moment.. on stage lol!

We both felt so proud so we have to take another picture on stage after the program haha!

Can't believe a school year has already gone. He'll be in kinder next. The next thing we know he's already in college. Oh no! don't grow up too fast my little boy :)

My sister and her long time boyfriend are going to get hitched! And I'm going to be the Matron of Honor.. yes matron! oh my.. does that sound so old???

OK, as a maid of honor.. err.. matron of honor, I helped her with the planning - choosing gown designs for the bridesmaids, wedding favors, trying out caterers' menu (I loved this!), sourcing out suppliers and making the invitation. The last on the list, I would like to share about.

We decided to just make the invitation on our own. I got the inspiration online (sorry card company I got some of your idea ;) ). I just tweaked it a bit and changed the colors according to her motif which are brown and teal. Got nice cardboard papers from National Bookstore for the invitation pages and also for the envelope. We did not use the traditional envelopes, instead we made our own also. It was just a bit tiring cutting all the half circles on the envelope. But I felt that our effort was all worth it. Here are some photos..

I really enjoyed being a soon-to-be Bride's slave! And I'm getting so excited for her wedding day which is barely a month from now.
