Finally Homecoming Queen!

It's true I was voted Homecoming Queen! YIPEE! I hosted Bunko tonight and because it is close to Halloween we had a costume party. I dressed up as a Homecoming Queen Wannabe. Due to the fact that almost all of my siblings except 2 (1 of which I'm sure will be in it next year) have been in Homecoming Royalty I feel like quite the loser since there are 8 kids in my family and I'm 1 of 2 who haven't been in homecoming royalty. But tonight I was voted as Homecoming Queen and it was a unanimous vote! All for me! YIPEE! It was pretty fun and all the ladies tonight thought it was pretty funny (either that or they thought I was totally crazy and decided to be nice to me and laugh....but hey I still won!) We had a great time tonight! Here were some of the things I did to get my votes!

As everyone came in they saw this sign in the yard.

Then as they came in I gave them one of these. I cut the circle out, laminated it, and hot glued a safety pin on back. So everyone got a Vote for Dede pin when they came in.

I held a vote for homecoming queen and this was the ballot. The small print under the Write in Candidate says: "(Write in candidate’s first name must start with a –D- and end with an –E-. Candidate’s last name must also start with a –W- and end with a –T- !)". So after the vote guess who won....ME! It was fun! So I finally won Homecoming Queen!

Here I am so excited I won! And look flowers!

Here is my pretty Queen wave!

And here is a picture of all of us dressed up! Boy we have such a great time! I love my friends! And notice they are all wearing my pins! :)

Here is one Mike took when we were all not ready for the picture to be taken! :) We always have so much fun and laugh a lot! I love it!

Oh my goodness! I am going to pee my pants! That is so funny. Those stupid DCHS kids didn't know what they were missing when they didn't vote for you! :) That looks like a fun group of girls...awesome!
