Jenessa was chosen to be in the Sandia Homecoming Court by the Senior class and then chosen 1st Princess by the student body.
It was a really fun experience, but you're probably wondering why I'm starting off this blog with pictures of Parker. Well...this is how we kept our 2 yr old happy during the coronation assembly. I took the first picture of him because he was getting restless and he said "I see! I see!" Then he did his GQ pose and looked at me like, hellooo...take the picture! Then it was "I see, I see!" We went on like this for quite awhile. Here are just a few of his first poses. He was hilarious!
Once you're chosen for court, you get paired up with a guy that is on court, and you perform a skit for the student body at an assembly that happens the day of voting.
This was Jenessa's skit buddy, Christian Meyer. If you're ever here visiting, remind me to show you Jenessa's skit, it was a spoof on the infamous Spiderman kiss! Scandalous!
Jenessa's dress was made by Yolanda Fastle, a sister in our ward. Yolanda is an amazing seamstress; she made Britta's senior homecoming dress as well as her wedding dress. Caitlin has already put in a request for a senior homecoming dress! We are sooo lucky to know Yoli!!
For the coronation assembly, each court member picked their own escort and Ness picked Cait.
The decorations were amazing! These 2 gals worked long and hard on them for Senate.
Kirby Lannom with Jenessa and Casey Harty with Caitlin practicing for their pictures that they'll be taking at the Homecoming dance, well...all except for Caitlin since she isn't allowed to go till she's 16.
This is the moment when Jenessa is saying, "Hey little sis, we've made it up the stairs and across most of this catwalk in these extremely high heels and we haven't fallen! Yippee!"
Ironically enough, this picture has the 1st and 2nd Princesses and 1st Prince in it.

The whole shebang! I am always amazed when my little Mormon girl rocks it at a school of 2200 with only a dozen other LDS members!
And now...Jenessa and her adoring Fans!!!
