Homecoming Week Fun!

Last week was homecoming week at the high school. The kids had fun activities all week. On this particular day it was "twin" day. My son, Grayson, and his girlfriend, Rachelle, dressed up like twins! Aren't they just gorgeous! LOL! Good dental hygiene is highly over rated! Hee, hee! Rachelle made the t-shirts and they are so cute! When they stand together it makes a big heart in the front. Grayson's contribution to their outfits was the headbands, glasses and the beautiful teeth!
Awe.....true love!!!
The back of the shirts say "girlfriend" and "boyfriend". Grayson told me that a lot of kids at school said that they had the best "twins" outfits!
On Wednesday night they had "Heman" volleyball where the boys played volleyball, and for the girls they had "Powder puff" football. It was so fun! All the kids dressed up really crazy. The different classes competed against each other. The first game was freshman vs. seniors, so here's my youngest son, Hayden, and his class on the court ready to play against Grayson and his class.
And here's Grayson! Isn't he dressed wild! He has Rachelle's number painted on his chest, #6.
Hayden's hitting the ball here.
Some of the guys dressed up so funny! Here's Grayson's friend Kyler........love that hair!
And here's Aleks. Dig the pink shorts and pink bandanna Aleks!
Hayden didn't dress up very much, just all black with long socks.
The seniors beat the freshman!
I told Grayson that he looks like a guy from a 1970s detective show!
After Heman volleyball we all went outside to watch the girls play powder puff football. Grayson said that a big bunch of senior girls came to him earlier in the week and asked him to be their coach and he decided to do it. It was a good move on their part.....it's the first time they have ever won! Hayden was the coach for the freshman team too! They didn't fair so well though. Rachelle played for the juniors and she looked pretty cute out there!
Here they are after the game! Love the school spirit!
Rachelle and her friends. They had their boyfriend's football numbers painted on the back of their shirts.
What a fun week! Tomorrow I will show the football homecoming game and pictures of the kids before the big homecoming dance.

It's kind of a sad day for us, tonight is Grayson's last football game. It has been kind of a disappointing season for the boys (we're 4-5), but also a good season. Grayson did have lots of fun. We have gone to every game except one (the night of the wedding rehearsal) and we are so proud of our son. Tonight is senior night and they honor the seniors. All the parents are invited down onto the field and we give our sons balloons and gifts and they boys read a tribute to their parents. I hope I don't cry!

Happy Halloween!

So fun! !!
It's our last football game of the season tonight too- it IS kind of sad-
Grayson and Rachelle's tshirts bring back memories- my husband and I (at that age) had matching tshirts- with "I'm His" and "I'm Her's " on the front with each others name across the back- awwww!
They are a sweet couple!
thanks for sharing your great pictures!
Have a fun evening and a great weekend!

Blessings!
Gail

LOL. That twins outfit was so funny. And your comment about the 1970s detective was right on target.

I love you. Kathi
