It must be Homecoming 2012
It was Homecoming last weekend and it was full of activities. We had to make a mum and I'm grateful that Makenzie doesn't like the really big mums. I offered to make it big, but she just likes it simple, if here is such a thing when it comes to mums. Her mum was mostly silver and white, that is the color of the Junior mum. I offered to make Jacob an arm garter, but he didn't want one. All of Jacob's friends took dates to the dance and since we think he is too young to date, he didn't have a date and he didn't go to the dance since all his friends had dates. Jacob had his friend Thomas come over and hang out with him during the dance.
Our football game was Saturday morning/afternoon. We won, but barely. We didn't win the game until the last few seconds. It was a little too close for comfort. The best part of the game was half-time, that's when the crown the HC Queen and King. This year, our friend Olivia Ritter was crowned the Queen. It was extra special because Olivia is a special needs student and she has served as one of the girls basketball managers for the past 2 years. It is nice to see the students do the right thing! The QB, Cole Thomas was crowned King. He was really sweet with Olivia. We came home and Makenzie started to get ready for the dance. She didn't have a date so her and a few of her friends went together. This is the nicest group of girls, they have gone to the dance together for the last 3 years now. They met at our house and then we went to take pictures, but we got a late start and it was getting dark. After pictures they came back to our house and ate pizza, yes, pizza, wouldn't have been my first choice, but that's what they wanted. To kill some time before the dance, we decided to take some more pictures. I shut the lid on my piano and they were laying on top of it and posing. They had a lot of fun doing that. They went to the dance at 8:30 and left at 10:20. At the dance Makenzie was talking to Olivia the HC Queen. She told Makenzie, "I get to dance with Cole at 10 o'clock and it's OK with my boyfriend." Olivia makes me laugh, she is so cute! After the dance, they went to Chili's. After Chili's they came back to our house and hot tubbed, roasted marshmallow's and made smore's. Then they watched a movie and everyone went home. It was a long day, but I think they had fun!

Olivia was way more excited than she looks. When they said her name she jumped up and down.

Jacob needed the money to pay off a bet.
He had a bet with a friend that BYU would beat Notre Dame :(
