Penn State Graduation

Penn State cookie

I can't believe it, but my "little" brother just graduated college from Penn State!  I'm proud of you Matt!  My family headed up to State College, PA a few weeks ago (Cinco de Mayo weekend) to celebrate Penn State style.

Of course, I made some cookies to bring to the graduation / Cinco de Mayo party that night.

And forced Matt to pose for pictures with the cookies in his cap and gown :)

My cousin Kelly was a bit more enthusiastic for the photo shoot :)

How cute is this little photographer?!  This is my cousin's daughter, Mackenzie, who was very focused on getting some great shots during our photo shoot!

I had a great time spending time with my family in State College.  We ate, we drank, we hit pinatas that were filled with mini liquor bottles, we sang about red solo cups...

We even got to practice icing cupcakes with Mackenzie!

I digress, but she's just too cute not to share!  Anyway, back to the cookies...

Congratulations to Matt and all the other 2012 grads!  I promise life isn't that bad after college.  Eventually you'll find a job, make some money, and be grateful that you never have to stay up late doing homework ever again (hopefully)!
