First off I want to start off with a picture of these four.. Mm, Who are they? Well you see us four graduates have been priveledged to become apart of the man in the middle's youth group. He has truly watched us blossem from young teens into adults. We are not just a typical youth group. We have truly became family to each other.
I can't even imagine what high school would have been like with out these four. They have prayed, encouraged, guided, and have even been there for me at wee hours of the night. I'm sure going to miss them, but cannot wait to see how God uses each of them for His kingdom!

As soon as graduation started, and I began to walk in, this is what I saw! My family blown up pictures from when I was an ornery little girl! I was embarrassed for the first few seconds.. But then realized, Oh well, it gave the whole crowd a laugh including the administration on stage!
The Hayley Bevel Crowd
My neice, Emma had been crying,because Hayley is graduating and will be off to college!
My brother inlaws decided to have their faces covered with me!! It was their "brilliant" idea for the posters and air horns I may add.
To conclude graduaation night, my sister and her husband had a gender reveal party of their new addition to the family. Even they did not know what it was until then... We were so excited to take a bite to see the BLUE icing for the baby BOY!!
Emma giving baby brother kisses!
The next day I was able to share the ending and beginning of a new chapter in life with family and friends.. I do want to add that my talented mother baked this not only ADORABLE cake, but also very DELICIOUS!
Mom, me, and Heidi(sister)
I want to give a special thank you to all who joined me on a very special weekend! Specifically, to my parents and to all of my siblings for making huge efforts to making my weekend spectacular! They threw me a wonderful graduation party!
