Monster Mash!

As a precursor to Halloween tomorrow, Helena's school held a Halloween party on Friday night that included special Halloween activities and prizes.

After years of being princesses for Halloween, this year Helena chose to be a witch

Bobbing for donuts! That's a game I wouldn't mind playing.

A Day at the Spa!

Helena celebrated her 6th birthday last weekend by inviting a few of her close friends for a day at the "junior spa" for manis and pedis, followed by pizza and cake.

Good timing by Jonathan to take a nap during the spa portion. Of course, he woke up for pizza and cake!

The party wouldn't be complete with out a Hannah Montana cake

Jonathan swarmed by all of the girls

Happy 6th Birthday Helena!

We're Going to Miami!

Sara and Jeff had a wedding in Miami Beach this past week, and they brought Helena along as a prelude to her upcoming birthday. She enjoyed spending the weekend with Bubbe and GiGi in West Palm Beach. Don't worry - Jonathan enjoyed his "alone time" with Grandma and Grandpa in New Jersey.

Jeff couldn't give up watching the Michigan game on Saturday, but he time during halftime to join Sara for a walk on the beach

It Must Be Fall!

Besides enjoyable Saturdays of college football and Sundays with NFL football, it is obvious that fall has arrived because we made a trip to the local farm last weekend to go pumpkin picking.

Three peas in a pod!

Amazingly, Helena volunteered to ride the horse

Dance Party USA

Anybody who has met Helena knows that she loves to dance and sing. As much as she likes to create her own dances and songs, she is amply familiar with pop music. This afternoon, we bought her a microphone that she can hook into her iPod to play her favorite music while she sings along. The following three videos speak for themselves. Enjoy!

Second day outfit - equally preppy with sweater (Mommy took time to pose, but Jonathan couldn't resist having his screwdrivers in the shot)

After two days in synagogue, we discovered that Jonathan had a "Cars" yamulka that he took a liking to
