Homecoming 2009

Tonight we spent our time up at the high school for our yearly homecoming parade and assembly. Tibi was chosen by her classmates to be their Sophomore Princess. She asked her best buddy friend, Parker Chappell, to be her escort. They looked radiant in their formal attire, thanks to the tux shop and big sister Michaela's prom dress. Here are the snapshots and video of the night, again for big sisters who missed out on the festivities.
Landon was chosen by his bandmates to play the quads this year in the parade, which is almost unheard of as a freshman.

Tibi came by next on their class float. The weather was colder than it's probably ever been for a homecoming parade, with wind thrown in for good measure...

After the parade, we headed into the gym for the assembly where they crown the Homecoming Queen. They introduce the underclass princesses and escorts too. Here's Tibi and Parker. They made such a cute pair. (I told Parker earlier that he wasn't allowed to look better than Tibi! He's cutting it a little too close.)

Landon playing the quads in the band. He's following in his two big sister's footsteps. Very cool...

These are some "after" pictures, just random, fun ones.

aaahhh...memories. I remember how much fun it was to be a princess. Paulette and I tied so we were both escorted by Brian Jensen. I hope she enjoyed it. Tell her she looked gorgeous.

Man I miss listening to our awesome band! Especially our percussion group. Landon did awesome!

Tibi, you look so beautiful! I wish I could have been there! And Landon, way to rock on the quads! Looks like a good homecoming. Hopefully we beat VV tonight!

She looks really beautiful. That makes me miss MVHS! I wish I could've finished high school there. It's the best high school ever...really.

Hard to watch this without crying. VERY proud of Tibi and Landon. Her classmates must really love her to vote her the Princess and cheer for her like that. Landon did awesome at marching and the cadence. Wish I was there, hopefully someday soon. I can't wait to see everyone at Thanksgiving. I will teach you the BEST cadence Landon called "Jaron"...then maybe you can teach it to the other drummers if they don't know it...
