From nurseries to nursing homes, Marian students came to school Wednesday dressed as babies and oldies for homecoming week. The underclassmen were crawling through their day as the upperclassmen struggled to get down the hallways. This theme has always brought out the creative side of people. Whether it was dressing up as the elderly Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy from Spongebob, or just wearing a onesie and a pacifier for the baby theme, students enjoyed bringing this theme to life. The underclassmen have always been the babies as they are the newest students in the Marian family, and the upperclassmen have always been the oldies because they are considered the older, wiser students.

The two homecoming days before this day were favorite Disney movie and dress like your hallway, and both of these days brought out a very creative side of the students. By day three of homecoming week, everyone was participating in the theme in some way. From the upperclassmen, there were outfits varying from an old ugly Christmas sweater to a long nightgown buttoned up to the neck and even students using walkers and scooters to help them get around faster. The senior group that won best elderly costume belonged to the Shady Oaks Retirement Home, who struggled to hear their name over the intercom without their hearing aids in. This group of elders came right from the nursing home wearing their visitor name tags and carrying around prune juice. Many underclassmen were inspired by the big fuzzy onesies that they found sitting in their dressers waiting to be worn; some students even used pacifiers, and even some, giant baby heads. Sophomore Leah Taylor was very excited to be able to wear such a comfortable outfit and to enjoy homecoming week with her friends. Taylor(10) commented, “For this homecoming theme I decided to dress comfortable and cute by wearing a onesie with a pacifier which I actually found just lying around in my house.” The best costume for the babies belonged to the Walsdorf triplets who each wore a shirt with the following titles: Triplet One, Triplet Two, or Triplet Three. The majority of the other underclassmen chose to wear a big onesie that either represented an animal or a character from a Disney movie, like Olaf from the movie Frozen.

Day three of homecoming week will be one to remember. Sights included upperclassmen using walkers with bright green fuzzy tennis balls and long nightgowns to the underclassmen wearing giant baby heads and big fuzzy onesies. From readers to rattles, Marian students can look forward to this theme for many years to come.
