Homecoming weekend...

This weekend is homecoming and "fingers crossed" that we stay dry (even though it's suppose to be windy and chilly) so that Emma's Varsity band can perform at half time.


Emma and her friends are attending the homecoming dance Saturday night and we've had fun playing dress-up and having our college niece practice on Emma's hair.



Her girlfriends are coming over to our house Saturday late afternoon for pictures before they leave for dinner and the dance.  They'll all be coming back for a sleepover, so Josie will be thrilled to see everyone when she gets up in the morning.  I don't think the weather is going to be on our side, but we're hoping for a fun photo-shoot in our woods and treehouse.   Chris snapped a few pictures of Josie on the treehouse deck last night.  

Such beautiful fall colors right now.

Happy Friday, everyone!!

Wow, your Fall foliage is looking amazing! I wish ours would come along, it's a little slow this year.
Emma looks beautiful, and I love the picture of Josie!

Emma is looking so grown up! I hope the weather cooperates for the game, and that everyone has a good time at the dance. I'm not sure I could manage to stay awake that late these days.:) xo Nellie

Happy Homecoming to Emma! She looks so lovely in her young lady attire!

There is a special package coming your way...I hope that it makes it without any damage. Just a little treat for your treehouse. It's has nothing to do with the season

Chris is official. He will take office on Nov. 1. We are so excited. There are more changes coming with the Whaleys, too.
Homecoming hugs,
Cindy
PS--Our homecoming is today at my high school!!!

Emma looks stunning! Is she wearing the ballet flats or the sandals? I always enjoyed when my oldest daughter went to all these events. Her dad would buy her an expensive dress (I certainly couldn't afford it)and I would provide the food and music for all the girls getting ready. My youngest, who is a junior this year, was totally into all the same things in her freshman year, but hasn't done anything this year. Maybe I'll get to witness it all again for her senior year....fingers crossed!

Beautiful piccy of Josie....she's so stinkin' cute.

Love ya
Meri

OMG. My perfect Princess is growing up. Brought tears to my eyes to see how beautiful you look. I am so very proud of the young Lady you are becoming. I hope you have a very memorable evening with all of your friends. Cherish it. Take lots of pictures. :) Send me some goofy ones too!
Love you so very very much
