Mums The Word.....

It's Mum time again!   Homecoming is already here......way too early if anyone is asking me!  And....of course, no one has!!!

Third football game of the season and it's Homecoming!!  I would prefer to have this big event, sometime during the month of October. just got started and we need a few weeks to get past all the hype of school supplies, school clothes, and new beginnings.

This picture is a tad bit blurry, because I failed to look back at the picture after I snapped the thing.

Oh well....I think you can see how it turned out..

Our school colors are Royal Blue and Gold......BUT, it seems that our local Hobby Lobby and Michael's was not prepared for the 14 East Texas Schools that decided to have Homecoming early this year!  

This is what happens when you try to avoid the hustle and bustle of
Homecoming Week.   The isles at the craft stores are so crowded and it's almost impossible to find what you need.   In this case, I didn't find what I needed!!

I ended up not using the picture frame that I thought would have been so stinking cute.
Instead, I used the crown along with the initials K and T,  which stand for Kelsey and Tyler.
I decided on the crown, because Kelsey (Tyler's long time girlfriend) is a Homecoming Representative of the Jr. Class.

When I think of our High School Homecoming.......this is what comes to my mind!
When I was in school, there were NO silk mums!!!!!!!
Our MUMS were made using the real thing.   I love the smell of Mums....

This year, Kelsey is also getting a "Lighted" garter.......I think it will be sooooo cute to see the lights in the mum...especially after it gets dark outside...

The most important thing is.....Homecoming is all about enjoying those youthful years.

The game....The Homecoming Royalty....The parade....The DANCE....


The Memories!!!

I hope the kids have a wonderful Homecoming and I'm especially Hoping for a 


More photos later......and my fingers are crossed for Kelsey to be elected "Princess."

Hugs Ya'll........Shug ~

I LOVE that white mum with the little crown! So beautiful! The only mums I remember from my school days were fresh mums. Homecoming was always in October, too. Such a fun time!

I'm with you, Shug. Seems Homecoming comes too soon in the year now. Our mums were real, too, and SOOOOO big and smelled so good! Good memories. ;)

You did a beautiful job on these! Love the "bling". Glad I didn't have a Hobby Lobby urge this week. LOL! Good luck to Kelsey. blessings ~ tanna
