Congrats to Joy our Honor Star!

Here she is before the ceremony!
I had so much fun doing her hair!
Here she is with her sweet Daddy!
It was a beautiful evening.

I was just sure I would be a teary mess up on the stage, because I get all choked up when girls I don't even know get crowned... ; )
But, I made it!
Here we are.
(minus Nathan who was delayed in Chicago)

(thank you Jamie for taking pictures for us!)

A sweet family paid for all the girls to have a ride in this:
And they were so excited! They went somewhere "really fancy."

~To Mc D*nalds for sundaes! : )

Now, if you have a daughter who becomes an Honor Star and someone hands you the piece of cake with her picture on it and she is off in a limo having a sundae, DON'T eat it!
It may cause her to be scarred for life and your family will tease you forever. Plus, it's really a weird feeling eating your daughter's face. -Trust me on this one! ; )

~Becky , who is hoping to live this down someday!

Congratulations, Joy!

Becky said...

Your Joy is just beautiful! Congrats to her and to all of you for the great kids that you are raising.

What a neat trip to WI too. Your involvement in the Bible quizzing is very impressive.

Keep it up!

What a beautiful and honorable accomplishment!! And, don't feel too bad about the cake, Becky. . .I probably would have done the same thing!!

~P.S. So far we've found one pair of jeans and a pair of shorts that I think belong to Nathan. I'll send them by the guys on Sunday!!
