Alison: The Graduate

This past Friday the whole Christopher clan from Philly to Long Island travelled up north to cheer on Alison, the youngest Christopher sibling, as she graduated from College of the Holy Cross. It was such a treat to all be together as a family in the same place, at the same time! It rarely happens these days due to well,... just living life and the sheer difficulty of trying to clear nine adult schedules for one particular day. But we did it! And although the sky hung heavy with thick grey clouds and scattered showers tried to dampen our spirits, our sunny dispositions kept the rainfall at bay and it was a fantastic day! (Excuse the rhyme). After the ceremony we celebrated with a huge dinner hosted by Alison and her five best friends from Holy Cross. We are so proud of you Alison and know that you are going to continue to amaze us with your accomplishments! 

Scroll through to see (waaaay too many) photos from the whole day!
