The Gruber girls are so cute...blue cups, plates, napkins, etc...
Who knew reading could be so much fun?!?
Mya is finally coming around to us!

After a fun morning/afternoon, we rushed back to Provo to get ready for the Commencement Ceremony. Typically students just sit with their graduating Schools; but being married, Jason and I got to choose which School we wanted to sit with (Family, Home, and Social Sciences for me, or Marriott School of Management for Jason). The choice was not hard at all (especially since it had been several months since I had even been in school...I officially graduated in December 2009, but graduation ceremonies are not held in the Winter).
Lining up for Commencement Exercises
Inside the Marriott Center... great seats!
The guest speaker for this years Commencement Exercises was Elder D. Todd Christofferson.
He gave such a great talk and it was enjoyed by all!
The ceremony was followed by a lot of pictures...be prepared!
The night ended with another Gruber celebration of food, cake, presents, and dancing...yes, dancing:
Again, we capitalize on any opportunity we can to show off our ballroom skills...or so it seems!
Following acts included dancing by Karl, Nancy, Amy, and Allison. I reckon George stayed out of it and continued to observe from his chair.
