Dibs asked Natalie Larsen to the dance...kinda. He came home one night telling about the scheme he devised. He had carefully opened a box of popcorn and wrote his name on the inside, and then hot glued the box back together. The note that went on the outside said something like: "Find my name inside." He told of delivering the box and getting caught kinda. I then asked,"But did the note say anything about the dance?" He had a puzzled look and then said, "No, No I guess it didn't." We laughed and tried to figure out a solution. I finally said, "You should go back with a note that says : Now that you've popped the corn, I'll pop the question--Will you go to Homecoming with me?" He never actually had to take the note. She figured it out and answered him with a box stuffed full of "Yes" and "No" slips. At the bottom of the box there was a cookie the size of a pie that said "Yes" spelled out in M&M's. It was the tie breaker.
They had 5 other couples with them on the date. Homecoming consisted of a day date and then dinner and then the dance. For their "Day Date" they went on a photo scavenger hunt, in groups of 4. I don't know who won, or if it was even set-up as a competition. Dinner was yummy lasagne, green salad, and bread at the acclaimed restaurant: "On the Rooftop"... :) The family had fun putting that all together! Dibs made Natalie's wrist corsage. It's a white band that buttons, with cotton flowers--a pink one, a tiny black one and a white one. I wonder if he took a close-up photo of it. It matched her beautiful dress perfectly. The dance was enjoyable. Dibs wore his nice Sunday shoes but switched into his comfy Converse sneakers. From what I know it was fun for everyone. I hope so!
