Fall Fun Day

Fall Fun Day is one of Caroline's favorite days of the school year. Jackson and I headed to class with her this morning where we were served donuts, coffee, and hot chocolate. Yum-yum.

Caroline made quite an adorable Alice in Wonderland.

Jackson's a smart boy...he headed to the kitchen to see what the girls were cooking up.

On Monday, Caroline's class carved a jack-o-lantern. They picked the seeds out of the pumpkin and "planted" them in the grass behind the school. This morning the seeds had "grown" into a pumpkin patch. Caroline picked a huge one to decorate.

Her class - dressed up and decked out!

Here is Caroline in art class drawing a cat. They worked with pastels this morning.

Their assignment was to replicate the witch and cat faces (which were 3 dimensional) on paper. So, here is Caroline showing off her witch drawing. I think she did a fantastic job!

While Caroline was in art class, Jackson got to play at the train table.
He even got to play at recess... I think he's hooked on school :o)

Spidey Cakes

Many thanks to Diane for giving the kids these super cute spider leg cupcake holders. She very sweetly gave us three, so that Mini-We #3 won't be left out in the future. We made a batch of fudge cupcakes this morning and then had a fabulous time turning them into spidey friends! Sorry that the pics aren't as high-quality as usual...Brian has the "good" camera in London right now, and I have yet to perfect my photo taking skills with our other one. :o)

I snapped a ton of photos yesterday between Jackson getting his toddler bed and the bridal shower we threw at Mom's house, but here are two of my favorites...

Brian and Jackson assembled the bed. Caroline helped me dress it. As soon as it was ready, Jackson snuggled in, and we thought he'd never get out!

Caroline rode in a mini-van full of balloons to Brittany's shower.
