Hey Yall! Big celebrations in the Jackson Family! We traveled to Raleigh last weekend to celebrate Christopher's graduation from North Carolina State University! We are so proud of him!
Thursday night we all piled into two cars and headed downtown to Woody's which is a sports bar restaurant that according to Chris has the best wings. They have about 8294 big screen tv's on the wall showing different sports. The guys were particularly interested in watching a basketball tournament. Sorry, you can probably tell I am not a sports watcher because I don't even know who was playing. We made plans to go while the game was on, you know, so we wouldn't have to talk and converse..... Imagine our shock when we were told that they did not allow any basketball games to be shown on the tv's! What? Surely this was a joke! They beg, they pleaded, they talked to the owner. No. No basketball game would be shown. So if you are ever in Raleigh and you want wings to eat and you want to watch a basketball game while you eat said wings, do not, I repeat NO NOT GO TO WOODY'S. The wings turned out to be good though.
Julianne's friend and my second daughter Angie, or Angie Pangie as I like to call her, came for a few days to celebrate with us. She is the one in the picture of Jamie and Chris torturing someone!
We really had a good time, well, except for the game thing, which was the reason we went there.

Hey Yall! This weekend we traveled to Cullowhee, North Carolina to celebrate Linley Shea's graduation from Western Carolina University. She received her Masters and will be a Speech Pathologist. (Please correct me Linley if I am wrong!) Cullowhee is a beauiful town which mostly consists of the college. The whole area up there was just beautiful. It was so nice to get to see Linley's parents, grandmother and brother. Linley, we are sooooooo proud of you and can't wait for you to become a "legal" member of our family in July! I said legal because you are already a member of our family in our hearts. We love you and are very proud of you!
Hey Yall! Happy Mother's Day! I hope you all have been pampered and waited on all day! It has been quite here in Frannyland. I did sleep late and it was glorious. Thanks Mr. Frannycakes!
I just wanted to post a picture of my heartstrings along with the furry child and grandchildren. It was hard to get a picture with everyone and the dogs. Chris had his wisdom teeth out two days before this picture was taken and this was the only one that had him smiling. We were taking pictures for out Christmas card and this was one of 2845 we took.
I love yall!
