The Masterpiece

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!
