Homecoming week...

This past week was Homecoming week. It was our first year to really be involved in all the fun of the week, since Kayla is now a freshman. It was fun. Memories were made. It wore this mom plum out. Of course I had to take a few pictures of each day. Here are just a few of the hundred plus pictures taken during the week.

It was dress up as a cartoon character day. We didn't put much money or planning into this one. She put on an old princess dress she had from a previous year, got a black wig to be different and decided to either be "Mother Gothel from Tangled" or a black haired princess of some sorts. After wearing the black wig for the day, I finally convinced her that she would not look good with black hair. (You know how you always wish, as a teenager, for what you don't have...) I personally like her blonde curls.

Duct tape/trash bag day. We made a shirt late Monday night. I thought it turned out cute for a couple of hours work. You should have seen all the creative outfits at school...WOW!

Battle of the classes day. Kayla's freshman shirt. CUTE!

Blue and white day (school colors). She painted a shirt, an old pair of jeans and a friend even painted her hair at school.

She played at the bonfire. (A friend took this picture for me.)
Dress up day. Wear your church clothes.

Game time. My girl marched and played her heart out. Isn't she cute in her hat?

The last picture of the night. My babies. Oh how I love them to pieces. I am blessed.

What did you do last week?

We have Homecoming this next week. Kayla did a great job dressing up! I used to always love Homecoming week. I love the last pic of your kiddos. They seem to have a really special relationship. :)
