A super "Sweet" request!

Shell was asked to the Homecoming Dance today via cake.

The requesting young man, Michael, had "Happy Half Birthday! Will you go to Homecoming with me?" written on a huge cake for her and brought it, along with roses, to our house this afternoon.

(Shell is officially 17 1/2 today...and any of you who know her well, know that birthdays, even half ones!, are VERY important to her :) so that is a big plus for Michael that he also acknowledged her 1/2 birthday)

Unfortunately, I did not get a photo before it was partially eaten...but you get the idea!

Jeff did make good on a long standing threat to have any boy asking to date Shell fill out a detailed application before granting permission. Michael took it in stride and we should have the results back soon...of course, as it states on the application, he "must allow 5-7 years for processing" !!!

He, actually, has our initial stamp of approval--hey, he brought us cake, he can't be all bad :)

Hey, he may not be "the one" for Michelle, but he certainly sounds like a winner! Have fun at homecoming Michelle! Oh, you did say yes, didn't you?!?!

Yeah, so what was the answer. Don't leave the poor guy hanging. That sounds very sweet.
