UPDATE: CAN Y’ALL BELIEVE WE DIDN’T EVEN PLACE IN THE CONTEST? I’m not sure how offended I am or if I should just be glad we didn’t place worst of the best. I really don’t want to know if we were 4th. Best of the worst doesn’t sound so great either.
Wendy, I smell foul play.
I’m going to go pout now.
I know y’all have been refreshing my page all day today ’cause you just couldn’t wait to see what the Homecoming Door looked like. Behold, the work of art.
What can not be done justice in the photo is the shiny brilliance of the gold glitter. It was an inspired move on my part even if I do say so myself. Luke agreed it looked fab even if he does look like Liberace on steroids. I personally think our guy is a rockstar.
Full view. My friend Wendy is the mastermind behind the door. She took pictures of all the kids in class with scared faces. The text says, “Did someone say Tigers? Never fear, The Hornets are here!” The expressions of the kids are downright hilarious.
The Girl couldn’t wait until Friday to wear her Homecoming get-up. Just realized I went through the trouble of blacking out our town name and yet told you who our mascot is. Oh well. I figure if y’all want to know where I live you’ve figured it out by now.
The Girl in front of her door. She is so proud that her daddy (YES MY DADDY DID THAT AND HE EVEN HELPED WITH THE GLITTER!) drew the picture.
And I am too. Thanks for bailing me out, honey.
On Friday, the elementary will be having a wagon parade (think Radio Flyer) which thankfully, I’m not in charge of making. The classes pull their wagon down the hallway and are judged at the end.
What do you girls do during Homecoming? Do you have any cute ideas to tell us about? I need to stock up for next year but I’m thinking there are many of you who may need some themes for your own class projects. Share away!
It looks great! I love homecoming week! So much excitement all week long!
The door looks great, but The Girl is just too cute for words!!
I was really wondering what that was on The Girl’s shirt! Thank you for clarifying. (She’s so pretty – just like her mama.)
I’m so proud of y’all! That is great!!!!
For homecoming ideas, you’d have to talk to my creative daughters. I know nothing!
That door looks great – way to go!
BTW: I looked at your daughter’s shirt and I was trying to figure out what kind of wierd design was on her shirt – LOL
Have a great one sweet friend
I don’t recall doing a lot for homecoming in highschool, much less elementary. =) We had Spirit Week, but I don’t remember if it was connected with homecoming or not.
Definitely NOT a Southerner here! =)
The door looks amazing!
Love the glitter! And I’ll bet she’ll never forget how her daddy was there to help.
I bet you get to be homeroom mama forever! They had to love this door. :) blessings, marlene
Awesome job, Momma! What a masterpiece you have create indeed. As for homecoming, we don’t have it here in big city towns. We do in high school, but it’s just a dance and football game! :)
But, The Girl, looks precious in her get-up!
The door looks fantastic! I do wish I could offer some suggestions for Homecoming. Sadly though, despite my desires, our area just does not get into it.
What cute flip flops The Girl has!!
Your door and your man are FAB! What a great homeroom mom you make! Even though the kids don’t go to “real school” they do have homecoming on their Pop Warner football team, and we always make big banners to hang up and they get to play at the giant stadium known around here as “The Palace”. I too enjoy the use of glitter on the banners, but alas, glitter is not allowed at “The Palace”…party poopers!
Oh, and I usually make a bunch of my painted cookies for all the players and the cheerleaders for the homecoming game. (This is the ONLY time I do it for them…WAY too much work!)
No idea’s for homecoming. I just wanted to comment on your girl. She is a cutie! Love the ribbons on her homecoming t-shirt!
I can’t decide who she looks like — you with blong hair or Luke…..what do ya’ll think?
You go GIRL.
I’m impressed…the door looks great! And your girl, she is adorable!
It looks great! I don’t remember HC in elementary school but in high school we did all sorts of things. PJ day, school color day, tie day, all sorts of days…
hey superstar!! It looks great! Do you ever get a nap???
HaHa! Now that is something to be proud of! Great job! It’s awesome!
Well done! Well done! Hope your team wins! Rhonda
Don’t tell Luke but Brian has a colored copy of the print he so wonderfully drew…….a phone call would have saved him alot of time but I’ll never tell. I am sure there were lessons learned in the project….LOL
I just took great pleasure in telling Luke about the copy.
Let me tell you, there was all kind of re-salvation and sanctification that took place over that picture. LOLOL
I should have known your man could have fixed everything. He’s extremely cool. :)))
Good grief! What won??? I smell foul play too.
Nice blog. Thanks for visiting mine.

Well it’s an awesome work of art, for sure. What do the plebeians and pedestrians know of such high things?! If we could have voted, you would’ve won, no doubt. And NOT just because we’re partial to you, although we most certainly are. (It really is good.) Answer to your Q: “Yes!” You can do a video post that way. You should do this, Lisa. The people who are doing it seem to be very excited. I hope it all goes well on my end, technically speaking.
You were robbed. At the very least, you should have won “Best Daddy” award, or maybe “Best Use of Glitter” LOL! It looked great…
you did good lisa!! marina
It was good to see you and hubs this past week. Everyone needs a little pleasure reading every now and then. Have a great weekend.
Yes, Yes foul play indeed!! And that’s all I’ll say about that! Haahaaha! I loved it anyway and I think the kids loved there pictures.
