Last night was the big Sadie Hawkins dance. For the day date, each couple made a list of activities which another couple was supposed to do such as: Take a picture with a man in a pink shirt, take a photo of their date in a prom dress, hold hands and ask someone where a hotel is, ask a stranger for advice on kissing, and pretend to be a manikin in a shopping store window. Then they came to our house and dined on Asian grilled chicken, sour cream potato salad, fresh pineapple and strawberries, rolls, strawberry daiquiris, and brownie fudge sundaes.
I had a marvelous time playing host..cooking, serving, and cleaning up. Thanks to Tausha's mom who came and helped. All the kids were great: gracious and thankful and full of vim and vigor! It is fun to be around teen-agers. I like their energy.
Until November 22, Snapfish is offering a free photo book. So Janessa and I selected some of her dance pictures, uploaded them and soon she will be sent a bound book in the mail to immortalize the memory of what she calls, "one of the funnest dances I have ever been to" (Just so you know: the dance count total so far is two).
Asking for the book, "Who Pooped in the Park"
Asking directions to the nearest hotel.
Beginning the day date
Robert Duke, Janessa's date
Asking for kissing advice. The guy in the picture said, "Swallow often. Too much saliva is gross. And kissing leads to this (pointing to his baby)."
