Grandchildren time — MidWeek Blues — Jenna Graduation and KP has breakfast with Santa
Jenna graduated summa cum laude (with highest honors) from the University of Houston last Friday, the 17th of December, 2011.
She now has a Bachelor of Business Administration degree with emphasis in supply chain management.
And she has a job! Pretty much in her field. Like I was told it isn't just what you learned in college is why they want you to work for them. It is also that they know you can set your eyes on a rigorous four-year goal and accomplish it.
And more 'breaking news,' Jenna and Sean are engaged. Sean proposed, with a nice pretty diamond ring, on Sunday. Sean is a recent U/H graduate; he also has a job.
Of course Mrs. Jim and I were there for the graduation. Jenna humors us with lots of picture posing. When Jenna was sixteen she went to Europe on a four-week driving trip ending in a mission stint in Spain. She knows us pretty well; we haven 't changed much since then.
We attended breakfast with Santa this Sunday after church. Our time was 1:00 PM. They gave us the table right next to Santa and beside him was the Christmas tree.
KP liked the tree fine but she didn't ever make up to Santa. She did wave at him on the way out to go home. But no way would she sit on his lap.
And to the MidWeek Blues affectionados you will please note that every picture does have a little blue. Some a very little.
We are really enjoying having these kids home for the holidays. It has been August since I saw them although Mrs. Jim did go for a little London jaunt to visit with them. She was so afraid that KP would not remember her if they all waited until Christmas to see each other.
I think she remembered me a little although it took a bit of time for her to feel comfortable with me. Maybe if she'd have been around Santa for a little longer she would have liked him too.
KP is adorable. You already know that though.
Have a terrific day and enjoy having your family near. There is indeed nothing better than the grand-kids and the great grand-kids. I'm about to be a great grandma. Big hug. :)
Have a wonderful Christmas and enjoy the time with family.
she's smart and beautiful!! :)

Have a Merry Everything Jim

Hope sends hugs

Merry Christmas to you both and to your family.
