Texas Homecoming

Homecoming is always a big event in Texas especially with the tradition of making mums. Girls make garters for the boys and boys make mums for the girls...it is a tradition that we learned about 27 years ago when we moved here. I have no idea how it got started but it is huge here. Taylor's mum was the prettiest I have ever seen. Last year her sweet sister made her a duct tape one that was so cool and you can see it here. This year her date's mother made the mum and she did an amazing job.

Taylor made the garter all by herself and I think she did a great job.

These girls worked hard on getting the garters done. I am glad someone took charge and planned out a place where they could gather to make these with friends.

We have a favorite spot in town to take pictures and I am always pleased with how they turn out. Taylor and her date managed to match without even getting together to compare colors.

Time to hang up the mum and look forward to Homecoming 2012.
