Homecoming 2009!

Homecoming week for the Bulldogs was so much fun this year!!!
It started with a crazy game of He-Man volleyball! That's my son, Hayden, in center jumping high and hitting the ball over the net!
He-Man volleyball is when all the guys dress up funny and play volleyball. The four classes have competitions against each other. Hayden played for the Sophomores this year and they ended up getting 2nd place.
My son, Grayson's girlfriend, Rachelle, is the Junior class president, so she was one of the people in charge of the event.
Grayson was watching from the sideline. It was kind of surreal for him to be there not as a student any more, but as a spectator.
Grayson and Rachelle were laughing pretty hard at all the antics going on!
Whoot whoo! That's my boy again jumping in the center; wow, he's got hops!!!
After He-Man volleyball we all went out to the football field where the girls were playing Powder Puff football.
There's Rachelle in the center with the black leggings, red shorts, and yellow flags.
Rachelle had the ball and was running it in for a touch down, but she slipped in the wet grass and wiped out! Thankfully she didn't get hurt, but it was so funny to watch! Rachelle's team ended up winning the competition!!!
Then on Friday night we went to the high school to watch the varsity boys football game. Here's a blurry shot of the team running through the poster that the cheerleaders made. The cheerleaders also released a ton of red, white and black balloons. I love all the traditional things that the school does.
Before the game there is always a homecoming parade down main street.

They have homecoming parade float competitions between the classes and parade them through at half-time during the big game.
Then all the homecoming princess's come out all dressed up in their formal gowns and riding onto the track in fancy vintage cars where they announce the homecoming queen.
After the queen is announced they turn off all the stadium lights and burn a giant letter "B" for Bulldog's, it is so much fun!!! I love our little town!
What a great game! The Bulldogs won and what a sweet victory it was!!! Hayden had an excellent game and played so well! He got totally dirty, but he had a blast!
Saturday night was the homecoming dance and here's Grayson and Rachelle getting ready to go.
Don't they look nice!
She always coordinates their outfits! Their flowers match too, which actually was coincidental!
I love her hair!
They went out to dinner first and then on to the dance. They had a great time.
Hayden went to the dance too. He was the sophomore class prince. He really did not feel like going, but because he was a prince, he was required to go. It was cute watching him trying to figure out how to tie his tie. He pulled up a how to video on You Tube to help him figure it out! LOL! He ended up having a good time.
