Homecoming 2011 and Sharpies

Well...we survived, our daughter on the other hand is a bit wore out and came home from school with a migraine earlier.  But, she had fun!

It was a VERY long weekend.  Thursday night was the start of a volleyball tournament, Friday night the Homecoming football game, Saturday the finish to the volleyball tournament and the Homecoming Dance, and Sunday found us at church and playing catch up.

The team took 2nd place in the Silver Division of the tournament on Saturday, but that meant getting home after 6pm...can you say missed hair appointments, missed nail appointments, and some even missed their dinner reservations!

Our daughter got showered and dressed in record time-30 minutes (her dad asked her why she can't do that ALL the time-her reply "it's normally not that important").  I mean it was her Senior Homecoming Dance afterall. LOL

We managed to get her to the park for group pictures just in time.

I know...bring on the pictures...

How he popped the question...rose petals!

The guys posing for GQ

The ladies.  Two were on homecoming court this year!

The group.

30 minutes? I don't believe it...I usually have to wait!

No comment!

She's 6' 1" in heels...thank goodness for tall dates!
Okay, so now you ask...what do Sharpies have to do with Homecoming...
No time to paint your nails after a volleyball match before the big Homecoming Dance...Sharpies work wonders! Yes, I actually told her we'd "paint" her nails with navy blue sharpie to match her dress.  She thought I was nuts, her friends thought I was a genius ;-)

Today,we will all try and recover.
