Some of the girls from the Mariachi and I had SPECIAL fun the day before the banquet. Jeanette Heimer and I baked 640 cupcakes and the girls and I decorated them ALL. Boy, were we SICK of smelling frosting after that! Here are a few pics of our adventure.
Aren't our cupcakes pretty?!?!?!
Alyssa & Elexus decorating away!
Rebecca & Alyssa showing off their handiwork
Don't they look great?!?!?! (both the girls and the cupcakes silly!)
Here is the hall - simple decorations but it looked nice.
Jeanette & Karl (Stephen's parents) and Ralph (Pres. of YLM Human Care and long time church member and friend) enjoying the great food and festivities.
Mariachi Isai is a family group that got started taking classes with us in 2002 and now performs all over the place on their own. They blessed us with their musical talents and received an award ~Light of the World ~ for consistent proclamation of the Gospel for all that they do.
Here is a picture of all of the members of Mariachi San Pablo (minus their trajes (uniforms) of course!)
All in all, a very fun night. It was about time for a big celebration!!!!
