Gina's Graduation!!! 4/25/09

My Mother in law Gina, can now officially say "I am a Phoenix!" On Saturday she officially graduated from the University of Phoenix. She has been working on her Bachelor of Science in Business/Accounting degree for the last four years. She has worked soooooo hard and we are all so proud of her. It was not an easy task. Here is a picture of Gina and her cute red shoes. Those shoes were not comfortable for her to wear by the end of the ceremony so we had to take a picture of them to make it worth it.

The ceremony was held at the San Diego Convention Center in the Sail Room. It was a beautiful room. The ceilings literally looked like sails. But the acoustics were awful! The whole ceremony sounded muffled. Every time someone would talk, the sound would bounce all over the room and muffle the next words out of the person's mouth. You would think the engineers who designed the room would have thought of a solution for that.

Anyways, if you look at the ceiling in this picture you can see the roof that looks like sails. Honestly it was basically like a canvas roof pieced together like a sail. It's a cool idea since the convention center is right next to the bay.

Gina and a few of her classmates:

This is Gina with her siblings and her Mom.

This is Gina and her boys.

Gina, her boys, and me!

We were ALL supposed to be making funny faces... When in reality I was left all by myself. :o(

This is Gina's sister Kristy and her family.

This is the WHOLE family!

And here we all are doing our Phoenix impressions. I AM a Phoenix!

La Jolla Temple 4/21/09

On Tuesday, my sister and I went to the temple to do a session. I was having an awful week that week and I had about a million excuses of why I shouldn't have gone and up until we went into the session, everything was going wrong. I just wanted to go home and start my day over again. It was just one of those days...

Being the good sister Marza is, she kept pushing. So I made it happen one way or another, and I am glad we went. I sure needed it. We try to go once a month, but it has been happening every few months. Hey, at least we are trying. After we got out of our session the sun was literally just setting so I grabbed my camera and got a few shots. These shots were taken just as the sun was almost gone from the sky. I love the brilliant blue the camera captures at this time of day. If you look in the lower left corner of the picture below, you can see just a little pink from where the sun is setting.

Easter 4/12/09

Today we spent Easter at Grandma Krafft's house and Shawn & Gigi's new house.

This is Grandma Krafft and myself.

This is Don and his brother Mike. Not really sure what they were doing, but I thought it was funny.

These pictures are at Shawn & Gigi's house. This one is Brandie, Don's cousin. I liked the lighting around her, so pretty.

Don was trying to take Anthony's Easter basket. He is such an antagonizer...
