Nicole was nominated to be on Homecoming Court! What a fun and exciting high school experience! The tradition is at the homecoming high school, varsity football game, all the the princesses are escorted out to the field by their fathers..........what a sweet moment. Time is flying by and she will be a senior next year so we are trying to cherish every minute!
Luckily we already had a dress! (thanks to my bargain shopping in the off-season! she decided on the pink one! The brown one will debut again next year!) I had a short amount of time to get LeRoy something to wear! He looked dashing if I do say so myself. And I want to thank Mother Nature for no rain. I was worried all week it was going to rain. It was forcasted but I had such a positive (obsession) attitude that it wouldn't (but did have 2 cute umbrellas just in case it did!).
The getting ready process is always the most fun! Her friend Ana was on court with her so they came over to our house and got ready together. I made them pumpkin bread and had snacks waiting for them when they got home from school. And the hair and make up begins!!!!!!!
She makes a very pretty princess.............(she kind of looks like the special edition Barbie that you get in a pretty shiny box at Christmas time! ha ha!)
(she was 5 years old in this pic. I guess she has always thought she was a princess! She hasn't changed much.)
And I was on homecoming court as a sophmore in high school (circa 1987). My daddy escorted my out on the field at halftime!!!!
My entire family came. Such a fun night with everyone there supporting Nicole. Bonding. Taking lots of pictures (we have an obsession with pictures). I appreciated them all coming. Wish it could always be like that! Grandma and Grandpa Mac came, Tyler, Grandma Mary, Aunt Donna, Gunner, Drake, Aunt KayDee, Aunt Brandi. I loved every single minute of that night. Nicole was so happy and had so much fun.

So fun! My family............
The boys were more interested in the game. They moved up so they could watch football until halftime. Tyler, Grandpa Mac, Drake and Gunner. (us girls sat down on the bottom so we could get out to take pictures! and visit).

Thanks for coming to share her special night............

All of her friends were there.
I love that they all wear their UGG boots under their long dress. Warm, practical and adorable (and you can't see them anyways so might as well be comfortable!)
