Asking Isn't Easy

Did you ever go to a Sadies Hawkins dance when you were in high school?

You know, where the girls ask the guys?

Sadies is coming up at Elizabeth's school, and who else would she ask but Nick? (There will likely be another edition of Beauty and the Beau after that dance.) And - as with anything my girl does - Elizabeth went overboard when it came to asking Nick to attend the dance with her.
She cut up cereal boxes and glued them together to form the letters S-A-D-I-E-S, and a question mark. She covered them with fabric and put them on the wall. Then she blew up a gazillon balloons (with the help of Josh and an air pump) and filled Nick's room with them. (His room at our house, that is.) She hid under them and waited for Nick to arrive.
Brian had gone to pick Nick up at the bus station so Elizabeth could finish preparations for the big ask. And when he walked into the room she popped out from under the balloons and asked Nick to be her date for Sadies.

He said, "Yes."

And then the real fun began. *grin*

Who knew asking someone to a dance could be so much work? And so fun!

I love seeing these things I miss when he is at your house. I love Elizabeth's creativity - she's so fun! And, I am looking forward to Sadies too!

Kaira - I'm still picking up balloon pieces in the hallway. So there are "some" things it's OK to miss. haha!
