Hockey Boy's high school had Homecoming last weekend. He invited a friend and they joined up with a group of couples that was planning to eat dinner at one of the boys' houses before the dance.
I met with the other mothers to plan the evening. It took quite a bit of organization and work on our part, but everything came together so well! One of the senior girls in attendance told us it was the nicest homecoming she'd ever attended. Even the maternal-compliment- stingy Hockey Boy acknowledged that the dinner was *nice* and the food *amazing.* Their praise made our efforts worthwhile.
Their group met a park for pictures before dinner
We had a wedding to attend that night so a friend sent me pictures of dinner from her cell phone. I made the menus and placecards and also lent my silver and some folding chairs

A lovely evening!

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
