Corn, Corn, Corn, Homecoming, Homecoming

Wow this week has been crazy.
It could be because it's Homecoming week and Parker has had to dress up every single day in some stupid outfit and then attend some crazy activity every night this week.
Or it could be because I'm losing my mind.
Either way, it's probably all Parker's fault.

It's the perfect day for
We can all thank Mrs. 4444 for hostessing!  Go thank her!

* Today is the Homecoming Parade!  WooHoo!
The flag boys LEAD the parade.

I am going to go and take pictures.
This time, I will make sure the memory card is IN the camera.

* Tonight is the BBQ.
Parker is in charge of the BBQ.
He is not happy with his committee.
Good thing the BBQ will be over soon!

* Tomorrow, is my parents "Homecoming!"
They haven't been home in more than a year.
They left last August to serve a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Rome, Italy.
They were supposed to be gone for two years.
Then my brother died in March and my Mom got cancer.
They left Rome and went straight to California for the funeral and then straight from there to Chicago for treatment.

* My mom is now cancer-FREE!

* Parker's a-MAIZEing Homecoming Party is tomorrow night.
They are skipping the Homecoming Dance and going to the Corn Maze.
Then they are coming home for some "corny" food.
Corn Dogs
Corn Chips
Caramel Corn
Candy Corn
E-85 - get it?  because it is made with corn?  But we won't really be serving gasoline.  It will be Apple Cider.

And...........I'm making these -
Are these not the cutest cupcakes, excuse me, Corn on the Cob Cakes, you've ever seen?
Thanks to all my blogging friends who recommended them!

And I'm throwing in some non corn veggie tray on the refreshment table - I just can't help myself!

That's it!  That's all I can handle!  That's all the fragments!  Have a great weekend

That is great news about your mom! I love all the corny food! I am going to remember this a-maize-ing party idea in a few years when mine don't want to go to the Homecoming dance.

Totally corny! Those cupcakes are adorable. It sounds like a fun fall weekend.
So happy to hear that wonderful news about your mom! Enjoy your time with them.

Sounds like you'll be up to your ears... Have fun!

I love that you're making the cupcakes! They are so awesome!

I hope you both have fun, and that everyone makes it out of the maze alive. I go every year, but lord help me if it doesn't freak me out every time.

(No worries though, I put on my brave face.)
