Homecoming Dance!

Taylor went alone to the dance. She has a fun, positive attitude and had a great time! 

Paisley brown, cream, teal dress and Converse Dr Seuss high tops. 

Green Eggs and Ham anyone? Or...as her shoes read "Do You Like?"

It's Homecoming! Go Bobcats!!

And it is snowing. The bonfire is cancelled, football and soccer practices have been cancelled, and hopefully...the snow will stop so the remainder of the Homecoming activities can continue as planned. 

The High School kids are supposed to have their parade today, varsity football game tonight, and dance on Friday night. 

Taylor is going stag to the dance. She will look great though, check back to see pictures. She opted for converse high tops and a halter style dress. 

Having been raised in Texas, Homecoming meant Homecoming mums. There is no such thing here in Nevada. How sad! Sooo, this mom decided to start a tradition with my kids to make them Homecoming wrist corsages. The girls will get a handmade corsage each year of High School, and the boys (when they hit HS) can give one away to a female friend. I have already made one for Taylor, and she will wear it to the dance.
