100th Day of School!

This past Friday, Helena's elementary school class celebrated the 100th day of school with lots of fun activities (ironically, if not for all the snow, the 100th day would have been sooner). Daddy was off from work and graciously volunteered to assist the teacher in coordinating the fun day.

Pre-Valentine's Day - Cookies, Tea, & Donuts

Amazingly, Valentine's Day is not until tomorrow, but Helena and Jonathan have done well eating their fair share of chocolate, cake, and cookies the last few days. Friday, Jonathan had a Valentine's Day party at daycare. Yesterday (Satuday), Helena got to go to a special Valentine's Day tea with Mommy and Daddy that included chocolate flavored tea and chocolate-dipped fruit. Today (Sunday), Helena and Jonathan were surprised when Daddy came home from getting the morning paper with heart-shaped donuts. Oh, what will tomorrow bring for them?

Helena picked out one of Daddy's favorites (of course, almost anything dipped in chocolate would be worth eating)
