JSB- Junior/Senior Banquet. The biggest event of the school year. The event that Juniors work all year for, raising money and planning, to honor the Seniors. I was fortunate enough to be able to fly to Penang, this year, to help out and watch the kids prepare for the night.
First things first... making sure things are ironed. While the kids did not have a problem with ironing, the boys, or shall I say Teddy, had quite the problem figuring out how to collapse the ironing board. Of course, he also had no help from the peanut gallery... Unfortunately I must say.... it took them quite a bit of time to get that figured out. They were great sports though because they had the whole dorm in stitches!! 😂
As part of JSB, the kids give gifts to their dates. Mersades made a chocolate caramel cake for Emmett. It was worthy of a professional picture from Uncle Craig. That will come later...
I took over curling Rainbows hair. A "professional" was needed! 😉. I also did Mersades' hair, however I didn't get a picture of the process. 😔
Gavin wasn't allowed to go to the actual event but he was asked to help serve at the welcoming event, at the school's chapel. He cleans up nicely... well except for the fact that he didn't listen to his dear momma and put on his dress belt! And then when his big sister told him he missed a belt loop, in the back, he didn't care about that either and went to serve as is. Love fifteen year-old boys! At least he took a shower!! LOL!!
We just have to screw around... it never changes... 😏
Finally!! They look smashing baby!
The only pic I got with all three of them for the week!! At least it was acceptable. 😊
Mersades and Emmett exchanging gifts. He baked for the baker. He also gave her...
This.... so awesome! His words, "It was fitting for your family!" 😊
The unprofessional photos... mine... Ted and Kayla.
I tried to capture Ted being the gentleman... wasn't fast enough... but caught a pic of the professional waiting on the next set of kids.
After the welcoming in the chapel, the kids paraded out to the buses and loaded up to be taken to the super secret event location. I didn't get Ted and his date because they were the first ones out and I had no idea what was going on!
The theme was Beauty and the Beast!! So fitting for Marz for her last JSB. Ted was chosen to play Gaston! How fitting for him... he at least knows how to hold the gun!! Love this
Now on to the "professional" photos. These were all taken by the kids dorm "dad", Uncle Craig.
Here is the delectable cake Marz made for Emmett!! Awesome job Marz!! By the way... with the exception of the Hershey Kisses and the caramel, everything was homemade by Marz!
Probably my favorite of Marz... it's actually hard to pick. They are all so good!! "The cologne commercial."
This one was "Hey dude, you were suppose to have my "Mercedes ready!!" Or Lamborghini ...😂
"Singing in the Rain."
"Singing in the Rain."
And that's all she wrote! From all reports, it was an extremely wonderful night for the kids! Until next year...
"OH SNAP!" - You'll have to ask Ted!! 😉
