The theme for Homecoming this year was City Nights and our elementary school was given Dallas. I was less than thrilled with our assignment, but we ran with it and I think that our float turned out really nice after a wonderful group effort! We had two wonderful parents who are very handy at the art of paper mache' and made an awesome bull head for us! The kids had a blast making the grocery paper bag vests, which were the perfect project for them to work on while the parents were putting together the big parts of the float.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect week weather wise here while making the float as well as the night of the parade. Last year we were battling 30 MPH winds with rain and temps in the low 30's! I'll take what we got this year anytime!
Here are some pictures of the cowboy vest creating, float building and the parade night. Thanks so much for taking the time to look. I'm very proud of my husband being willing and able to jump in when I needed him!

One last thing that I would love for you to check out if you have a few spare minutes... One of the amazing teachers at our HS (that just happens to be realted to our amazingly talented paper mache' parents!!!) put together and produced a fantastic music video of the kids performing their own version of the song Live Your Life by TI and Rihanna. It's fantastic! It's a You Tube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XJhQywSmfc
Have a terrific Tuesday my friends!!!
