Brooke's LAST Basketball Banquet

We held the LBJ Girls Basketball Banquet at a local Olive Garden Restaurant. As one of the team moms (Candace's Mom, Bernice, was the other team mom), I was in charge of organizing the banquet. I bought teal, black, and silver balloons tied to black star balloon weights. We sprinkled the tables with black and sliver star confetti and chocolate basketballs. I put Brooke in charge of writing each of the player's and coach's names on a soft squishy basketball and used those as place cards. I had made up a photo roster for parents at the beginning of the season and had that duplicated on the cake.

The girls get along so well and had a wonderful time! We are thankful to Coaches Isaac and Jerome for their time and dedication to our girls. OH...and...The girls ended their season 10-0! Is was a little sad for Brooke as she pretty much decided to give up basketball when she goes to high school next year so she can concentrate on volleyball and track. Here are some pictures from the event...

Brooke and Candace helped Bernice and I set up before the rest of the players arrived.
