Homecoming 2010!

Mitchell went to his first homecoming dance on Saturday! He had a great time. He took Michelle De la Vega. They have been good friends for a few years. I forgot to take pictures of his invitation. It was cute. He made a cute poster that said something like... "Ya know, we M&M's make a good pair. Homecoming?" Then he covered the poster with M&M's and put it on her door step. Then she answered with candy all over his bed with a cute poster on his wall.

I couldn't fit it all in one picture, so here is what it says: "yes, we M&M's make a good pair,
So I guess it's no clue, we are very rare. So i would love to go Homecoming, I swear. Don't worry! I like your facial hair!"

Mitchell's week was crazy busy. He is in student council, so he spent many hours decorating the halls, building the float, helping with powder puff, the assembly and he had 2 soccer games on top of it all! I can't believe i didn't take a picture of the halls. They were AMAZING! The theme for homecoming was "around the world". The Juniors country was China. And they won the hall decorating contest! Great job!!

Mitchell came home Wednesday night a little stressed about the dance. His group was being a little indecisive. They didn't have dinner reservations yet, didn't know who was driving or what all they were doing. So we sat down and he made a plan. He wrote it all out and handed it to the other boys the next day. I was proud of him for stepping up and getting it done. Here is his list:

We went to the football game and we actually won! it's still a little strange for me to go to a football game in a t-shirt and shorts. I think I should get all bundled up! That's how they were when I was growing up. It just goes together... not in Vegas!

Here is the Junior float....

The dance was Saturday night. We got him a new suit. He looked so grown up. Like a missionary!! Here he is with his date Michelle. She looked beautiful!

The group shots...

Good buddies!

Handsome boys!

After pictures, they went to dinner at Kona Grill. Then they went to the dance for an hour. Then they got a really good deal on tickets to Mystere at treasure Island. They LOVED it. After the show they came to our house for dessert. We set up a chocolate fountain. They seemed to enjoy it. I am so happy that they had such a good time!

He's very handsome and they're growing up! It's exciting, but sad too. Before you know it, he'll be off on his mission and you will know what it's like to be a missionary mom!! (the good and the lonesome of it) & you'll never be the same:) The desserts all look yummy!
