Homecoming 2010......

This past weekend was Homecoming
at our school.
I'm here to tell ya,
it's not like it was 20 years ago.
These kids didn't just throw on
a pair of khakis
and a shaker sweater.
(if you were in high school in the 80's, you know what I mean)
It's a pretty big deal now.

My FAVORITE pic.  I think Clay looks like he is in a band.

This is Clay and his beautiful date Morgan.
I was informed right off the bat that they
are just friends...... darn it!
A mother can dream, right????

He looks more and more like my dad all the time.

We were very fortunate that Morgan's mother,
Courtney, takes FABULOUS photos!
We are so appreciative
she took time to do these!

I love this one of their legs and feet.
LOOK at Morgan's shoes!
They are so her.... funky and fun!

All of the pics were taken in Washington's town square
or in the alley's behind the buildings.
A historic downtown, makes for a great
setting, don't ya think?

How she walked in those shoes, I'll never know.

Before the dance,
We hosted dinner at our home for
the group of 10 that went together.
I can't take all the credit,
some of the mothers brought food
and helped us clean up.

our best effort to transform our dining room into a classy restaurant.

I tried hard to make it special for them.
I think they all liked it and had fun....
I mean, when they said,
"New tradition, homecoming dinner here every year."
I took it as, we did ok.

I wish I had a picture of all of them,
but I was to busy cooking and serving.
They were a great group of kids tho,
very polite and each one of them
told us thank you
before they left.
By the end of the evening,
my hubby and I were exhausted.
we would do it all over again next year
if they asked us,
hint hint.

Those pics are awesome. What a great couple kids. You and Tork should be very proud. Clay was such a little boy when Tork used to bring him into the kum n go. I feel soo very old. You two are awesome parents.

Anxious to come and see your store sometime also. I love love candles
