Nifty Thrifty Tuesday No.143

Hello ladies, hope you all had a wonderful weekend, I sure did. My weekend had nothing to do with THRIFTY, but it sure was NIFTY! We celebrated my daughter's college graduation, and fun was had by all. Four and a half years ago, I dropped off a young Christian girl here at Auburn University, and today, I moved home an awesome Christan woman that I am so proud to call my daughter...mom loves you Mary Claire. Now, let's get this NIFTY THRIFTY party going!!!
                                          Blessings,
                                             Linda

                               An Auburn tradition...we only had
                               to stand in line for an hour for this
                                                    pic.

                                        Proud parents!!

                           My family on graduation day.

                      My sweet sister Jean was there to
                        celebrate with us...Mary Claire
                               loves her Aunt Jean.

                      They are now, both Auburn women!!


Here are some beautiful Christmas features from last weeks party...
