We had our 100th day! I am sort of a junkie for the minor holiday, as you know :)
This year's ground hogs! I also found the most hilarious ground hog in a cup that I gifted to someone who also celebrates.
Laurel, queen of the handmade, set her mind on a Valentine of epic style. They arrows were a hit, HA!
These were treats for various class parties, grand parents, and family. I know, right? Over the top.
E made his first Valentine box ever. You flip the penguin up to see the slot.
These were super fun and easy. I love colored dipping stuff, and I am just going to admit to my Valentine junkie habit!
Laurel made these for us one morning as breakfast treats. Hilarious. This is why I like Valentines' Day. Any thing can be a Valentine. Aliens, eye balls, you name it.
Ears were pierced. We agreed that piercing could happen any time after she turned 10, but it has taken this long to be brave.
Elijah celebrated his half birthday. As an aside, he is the only child who celebrates a half birthday here. Why? School year celebration for him has to be at half, since whole is Aug 3. I couldn't even tell you the dates of the half birthdays of anyone else who lives here, including myself.
We attended the annual MAC ball. I wore a dress that was a little way out of my comfort zone, and had crazy fingernails. Luckily, we get by with a little help from our friends, pinterest, and distracting small boys.
And, one more (although I am sure I am missing something!)... Mardi Gras :) I made an easy but amazingly good King Cake. You can't find them to buy here, and it has become a tradition for us.
Finally, with all this action, February had a spirit week, and here is a quick picture of the fab four from that:
Yes, crazy sock and hair. You'll note that Jonah has gone super crazy with a black sock and a blue sock. He doesn't really roll with crazy hair. But, Laurel, well, you can see the contrast for yourself. #aintwegotfun
