Magnificent Major Yum...

Last night Elizabeth served a magnificent Mexican feast . . .


It was all incredibly delicious.... like this divine corn/black bean salad ...


...And this guacamole, which I think was my favorite....
Well, either that or the chicken enchiladas were my favorite- which you can see in the first picture.
Fortunately there were two pans of them. YUM.

For dessert, Elizabeth made some brownies (from scratch!) and served them with strawberries and whipped cream.
Here you can see some of the folks who enjoyed them....(I love that picture!)

Oh, I should tell you that all the food was made from scratch. Elizabeth, you outdid herself!
(Will said that 'scratch' is his favorite.)


Before the meal, Ryan and Caroline got to watch some BARNEY...


After BARNEY, Caroline showed us how she can jump from the stairs... and her brother showed us how he can now walk (safely) down the stairs...(I remember when he couldn't even turn over.)


After the meal, I went around and took some random pictures ....

Here are three graduation plaques (there's probably a different/better name for them) from A&M...
(The top is Elizabeth's, the middle is John's, and the bottom is Granddaddy Andy's.)


And finally, here's their favorite lamp...

Let's all say, "Gig 'Em, Aggies!"

Uh, that's when we're not saying "Sic 'Em, Bears!"

Good times!

And for the record, I'm pretty sure that picture of Ryan and I looking out the window was taken BEFORE dinner.

But yeah, what a feast--food and fun family.

Oops. Two of those 'after the meal' pictures were actually taken BEFORE the meal.
