CCHS Class of 2000

It's been awhile since I've blogged but last week (and this week for that matter) has been so crazy.  Last week was Homecoming week at the creek and it was also our high school reunion.  Homecoming week was always one of my favorite weeks of the year during high school and it has gotten soooo much better now than when I was there.  We had the big pep really Thursday night that lasted for an hour and a half. That's a long pep rally!  The best was when all the homecoming king candidates did a talent and we voted on the best and then the king was crowned.  There were a variety of talents from a unicycle to an impersonation of "The Situation" to a serenade to the queen. You couldn't have paid me to get up in front of the whole school and parents by myself and make a fool.  It was really entertaining, especially when they had to give their best pick up line to the queen.

Friday afternoon I went to the homecoming assembly to see all the pretty girls in their dresses and listen to Ben speak.  Later that night all alumni were invited to tailgate in the end zone of the field and it was so fun to catch up with people I literally haven't seen in 10 years.  Most of my class left at halftime and I finally got to watch some of the game. Thank goodness we won. No one wants to lose your homecoming game and everyone told my husband that all week. No pressure or anything!

Saturday it felt great to let lose. The weather was beautiful. However, I was still collecting money like a mad woman and trying to decorate was stressful but it all worked out.  We ended up about $100 short so I waited til everyone had a couple drinks and were feeling generous to donate a few more dollars. I will definitely let someone else handle that job next time around.  We had several classmates over to watch the LSU game that afternoon and I'm really not going to waste anyone's time commenting on that game.  Les Miles needs to go. Period. After I was all worked up from watching the game we headed out to Lincoln Hall. There were several people that couldn't make it out to the game the night before so we caught up with them. We only had about a third of our class there and I was hoping for more but I know it's hard for everyone to be in one place at once.  They were missed. We watched a hilarious slide show of pics from HS then ate some good food and enjoyed a band play some music (and attempted to get the dance floore started).  We also voted people for several categories like "least changed,"  "most unique job," longest marriage," ect...and visited until they kicked us out.  After that we headed to 3 Docs and visited even more. I couldn't tell you the last time I remember staying out that late. It was a blast and everyone says the 20 year is even better.  I don't think I can wait that long. Below are some pics.  I am sick I didn't take more but I was too busy being social. Enjoy!
