~Sarah Graduates tomorrow~

Twas the night before Sarah's graduation, & all through the house...
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. (I HOPE NOT! =)
The house had all been cleaned with lots of care,
In hopes that the graduation guests soon would be there.

The plans had all been worked out, and well laid,
The Spanish songs practiced, and the food nearly made.
Our lil' Sarah is as excited as can be...
Now if I can get the last minute things done, is the KEY! =)

The menu consists of these yummy foods...
All snack items, that I trust will be good.
Chicken salad sandwiches on my homemade rolls,
Southern tea, & a strawberry/lemonade ice ring, in my "fish bowl". =) (punch bowl)

A yummy-looking recipe I found, of a B.L.T. Dip,
& I'll serve with it veggies and chips.
A watermelon carved into a carriage for a doll,
Filled with fruit: strawb, grapes, melon, and watermelon balls.

Fresh strawberries dipped in chocolate...not good for a diet,
And lil' Smokies in yummy BBQ sauce, you've got to try it.
2 Cakes, "Tres Leches" & a Strawberry jello cake,
With Strawberries on top...both easy to make. ;)

Sarah loves the doll "Strawberry Shortcake"
So we decided that ... our theme to make.
Thus lots of Strawberries and pink,
It ought to be a fun grad. & party...Don't ya think?

If everyone comes that we've invited,
There'll be 26 people here, ... we're EXCITED.
And as each family goes to leave,
A loaf of my banana bread they'll receive.

Thanks to all who put a comment on Kimberly's made ONE HAPPY GIRL!! =)

What a beautiful little girl and what a happy milestone! I hope the graduation goes well and wow, don't I wish for a quick flight into Bogota to enjoy that delicious luncheon that is prepared for tomorrow!

I'm curious - how do you find all those "specialty" foods there in Bogota? Several of the things you mentioned are ones that I can't find here in Salamanca. Anyway, that's wonderful - and I hope your day tomorrow is especially blessed!

Thanks Jordan, Cameron, and Logan for signing my post on Mommy's blog. WE'D LOVE TO COME AND VISIT Y'ALL THERE! We could talk in Spanish, and we'd love to go and see the Volcano, we girls love things like that. So glad y'all are done with school for this year...I'm almost done. Have a wonderful day, and come see us anytime. =)

PS Melodie, We are blessed to be able to get most American type foods here. (Of course there are exceptions, but for the most part we can get what we want. I cannot get good choc. chips, P. Butter-- unless we drive to the NORTH and pay $7.00 for a small jar, and most stores don't have good marshmellows, theirs taste like GUM or somthing. =) God put us in a good place, for we have a mall right down from us. So, that's how I can get some of those specialty foods, for I shop in the 2 groc. stores there in the mall. (They are the closet groc. stores to me, and since we have no car, and it's not safe for me to do the buses and taxis alone, I'm very glad that I have those 2 groc. stores.) Sorry for the things that you cannot get, that's sad. Susan (Marty's sister, my cousin) had her baby last night by C-section at 10:00 PM. If you want to see pics go to Christa, Susan's youngest sisters blog. Praise the Lord that he arrived safely!!
Take care, love ya,
Heather =)

Dearest Sweet Sarah,
How pleased we are that you are finished with school AND SO FAST!!! Your picture is so sweet. How we'd love to get to be there with you tonight... but you'd have to translate it all for us, since we don't know that language that you speak! :) I'm soooo glad that Jesus worked it all out for you to have so many special guests... The treats that you and your Mommy are making for your food makes me hungary!!! I love you, Aunt Laura
