Jade's Graduation!

So, this is the first post I've done with the new blogger format and I can't figure anything out....ha ha!  All my pictures came out in this order and I can't figure out why....but, I also don't want to figure it out....so, we'll just go with it....ha ha!

I'm really not this narcissistic, this post is supposed to be all about Jade!  But, on Saturday, the girls all went shopping at the fabulous new outdoor mall in downtown Salt Lake and we took some goofy pictures....my sister wanted me to buy this hat, but I thought it was only good for a goofy picture in the store!!  (I did buy the glasses though...ha)

 Before we took off for the Mall, we all ate lunch together....I think this is the first photo we have of all my parent's grandchildren together!  Quite the age range!  Jade, 22...Saige 13, Sloan 8, Soraya 3 and Bodie 2!  I'm sure glad we got these pictures! 
 Bodie loved that wheel....he thought it looked like a fire truck wheel!!!
 As usual, he has no use for pictures!
 Love them!
 Me and B!  So glad she came....I love her so much.
 I love this picture of Joel and Jade....he's been a good daddy to both my girls....I'm so thankful he came into our lives.
 This picture means A LOT TO ME.  I adore this child...she is such an amazing girl....I can't believe she went and grew up on me, but I seriously couldn't be more proud of her and all she has done in her short 22 years.  She takes the bull by the horns in everything she does....and she stays SWEET!  So, so proud of her!
 Nana, Jade and Saige.
 Great picture of Nana and her first-born grandchild! 
 My daddy with his grand girls!
 I have two gorgeous daughters....LOVE that I get to call them mine!
 Two of my favorite people on the planet!
 Bodie having fun with his cousins!
 Me and my girl.  Did I say how proud I am of her....LOL! 
 Autie B!
 Lainie, Yvette, B, Sloan, and Soraya.
This picture cracks me up....Bodie was tipping his hat to us saying "see ya" to picture taking....ha ha ha ha!
 Words cannot express how much I love my family....so thankful for each and every one of them.
 Trying to coax Bodie into the picture!
 My parents and Jado.
 I know they are proud of her too!
 Just after Graduation.
 My dad is such a goof ball....he cracks me up!
 Waiting for Jade!  Can't believe that I have a child who is a college graduate and one who is still in diapers!!!  But, I wouldn't change a thing!  My kids are my world and I am so blessed to have them all.
My dear, sweet Jade....words can not express how much I love you and how pleased I am at how you have blossomed into the smart, outgoing, beautiful woman that you are....I always knew you would accomplish great things and I am so lucky to be your Mama.  I know this next chapter in your life will be great and wonderful and I'm excited to see it all happen!

Jade, my love, we are all so proud of you and your accomplishments. I know more success will come your way. The best part is that humility is part of your make-up. I am also proud of that. You know, I might be judged just a bit "touched", but when I saw your pic with Joel, I felt like he was your dad; I am grateful for him and your Mom and everyone who has influenced your life for good. I love you my darling very, very much. Always remember that. Nana

I am a step and didnt get to get really close to Jade but you can't imagine how proud I am of her. She is a perfect child. The pictures are great. Everyone looks so happy. Love you all.

I am proud of Jade as well. Kayla, you couldn't have asked for a better child. I still want to see all of your notes and journals of how you raised her! I'm gonna need them! I loved seeing all of the pictures. Everyone looks great!!! LOVE that first pic of you in the hat! You should put that in a frame.
