WOOOHOOOOO!!!

8 long years came to a final close this weekend as Joey walked across the stage to receive his Bachelors Degree of Science in Information Technology. On Saturday, we drove to Houston for Joey's graduation ceremony at the Toyota Center. We can't believe the day finally came! We are SO proud of him! Thank you to those of you that came to share this special day with us and for the many cards and phonecalls. Joey feels pretty dang good right now:) Its over!!!


YES!

Our family

Congratulatory kiss from the wifee. I had to put my leg up for the effect I was going for. Not sure if I pulled it off, but I tried.

Joey & his little ladiesJoey, his parents, and his sister, Nikol
Joey, my parents, and two of my brothers, Austin and Taylor

Joey presented me with the "stole of gratitute." It was really sweet of him.
Then Ella stole the stole:)

I love this! I guess it's because I went back to school and finished in 2004 at UNLV (just before we came here) -- so I understand the feeling of waiting a long time for this moment. Congratulations!
