A Sterling Silver in Santa Fe
Yesterday I attended a graduation party for my cousin Chris Vigil. It was a busy day. I got up early in the morning and made a huge red enchilada to take over. Chris is a remarkable young man. He is a math whiz, he is athletic and plays basketball, and now he can add “Head of the Class” to his list of accomplishments. I am so proud of Chris, and all of my Aunt Mary’s sons. Mary is my mom’s youngest sister, and she is my right hand woman! My aunt’s sons- Chris, Marcus and Toby are all doing so well. They are handsome and respectful. My Aunt Mary and My Uncle Toby have done a fine job raising good men. I must say that I was ecstatic to see an athlete make “Head of Class” as a Sterling Silver. This is one thing I love to harp on, and that is the fact that a person can be good looking, athletic and intelligent. Chris is an excellent example, as he made top 15 of 200+ in his graduating class. His party was fun. They had a live band, lots of food, and some **killer** cupcakes (ohhhh yes I licked that frosting off with the quickness cuz it was Saturday !!). You know my Aunt Juana got the party started with some hard core boot stompin’- she is 2 much! It is always great to celebrate accomplishments together. Following is part of an article that featured my cousin in the May 2012 issue of Rio Grande Family Magazine. We are all so proud of lil Chris. I believe he is my last 1st cousin on my maternal side that will graduate from high school. Good job Chris!
