It was Homecoming week!
Here's The Boy's football team. 7th grade football isn't quite the same level of action as older players, but it's fun to watch nonetheless. The Boy's team beat their opponents in both the A and B games, and The Boy got quite a bit of playing time, so he was on cloud nine!

There were themed days for Homecoming. Monday was class color day. Hollywood couldn't wear her class color because she is football manager and had to wear her black jersey, so she decided to show her class pride by wearing red in her hair and makeup. She looks like a vampire:*photo of Hollywood with red eye makeup all the way around her eyes and red streaks in her hair:
Wednesday was mismatched day, where the kids got dressed up in goofy outfits:

Friday night was the varsity game, and The Boy took off before I could get any photos of him. Hollywood was busy with her football manager duties, but The Husband and I had great seats by the endzone. We had blankets laid out for the kids, and so Bumblebee's posse came over to hang out with her. This was a great spot to watch the game, until they started practicing field goals at halftime.

Saturday was all about Hollywood since it was time for the dance:
First, we got together at a friend of Hollywood's to do hair and makeup.

Then we took pictures of everyone. Notice how the girls dress up in these amazing, glamorous dresses, adn the boys wear jeans and shorts? When I was in high school they at least wore ties!

Here's Hollywood with her date (they're just friends, or so she claims):
And here's my favorite photo of her:

After the dance, Hollywood planned to have 'a few' kids over for an after party. "A few" turned into about 50 kids. It was chaos, but they were well behaved, actually! We had a bonfire, so some of them went outside to hang out by the fire, while the rest watched football and played Rock Band in the family room. I didn't get many pictures of them because each time I did, they all protested, but here's one bonfire shot that I did manage to sneak in:

Today we're going to clean up after the party and do some laundry/resting. What a week!
