Ashleigh Giovannini and her family

My dear friends, Peter and Elizabeth Giovannini’s oldest daughter graduated last night from Morrilton High School. I had the honor of having the graduation party here at the house. I got everything ready on Thursday and cooked all day Friday between classes and doing grades. There was graduate Ashleigh, her parents, Liz and Pete, and sister Anna. her grandfather Jim Ettman, Granny Ruth,  Aunt Amiee, Uncle John and the 2 cousins; Tyler and Luke, Aunt Dorothy, Uncle Tony, Bill; Pete’s long-time best friend,  James and “Mommy Michelle” Cheek and their two; John and Liz,  and godfather Charlie and me, “Uncle Jim.” Judy Hutchison  came over to help me serve and do refills.  We had a wonderful time and they seemed to like the food! The cake Elizabeth got from “A Piece of Cake” and it was really good. No party with the Ettman/Giovannini’s is complete with out M&M’s!!! We all got to have our M&M’s.!!! 

Ashleigh graduated with honors from Morrilton High School and is going to the University of Arkansas and majoring in bio-medical engineering. We are all proud of you accomplishments and achievements. Congratulations! We all love you!!!
