Halloween Parades

Friday was a busy day because Helena had a Halloween parade at public school followed by a Halloween parade for Helena and Jonathan at their daycare later in the afternoon.

Being the youngest actually pays off - the kindergarteners get to lead the parade!

Fast forward to the daycare parade. Jonathan was so excited when he saw Mommy and Daddy, it brought tears to his eyes. Daddy worked the door to get a good view of the action.

Helena got face paint since her last parade

Jonathan got over the tears to show off his costume and his cape

Jonathan as Count Dracula has some game...and the eye of one of his female classmates. Of course, Jonathan has has his eyes on the cookie in her hand, as he motions in sign language for "more" to eat.

Helena skipped lunch to save room for two Halloween parties

Jonathan got over the sadness once he found the food

Happy 5th Birthday Helena!!!!

Yesterday, Helena celebrated her 5th birthday. It's hard to believe how quickly five years went by and how much our lives have changed.

Helena showing off the decorations left by the Birthday Fairy (one of the only ways we could get her to go to sleep Friday night was to tell her that if she was good, the Birthday Fairy would leave her a surprise in the morning)

Helena enjoying homemade chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast on her birthday

Mommy and Daddy got Helena the perfect gift - a pink iPod so that she can listen to all her favorite toons

Helena can now be seen everywhere with her iPod (with all of 10 songs on it)

Hard Day's Night

Jonathan was not feeling well yesterday, so Sara picked him up from daycare and took him to the doctor. This is a shot Sara took while they were waiting to see the doctor. Sometimes I guess it is tough being a baby!
