Along The Alphabet Path: H Week

H is for St. Helen, Herb Twopence Fairy, Honey, Horses, and Hair!

We actually started quasi-celebrating H week on February 24th during G week because of Nicholas' birthday.  All the kids wanted me to make a Winnie the Pooh cake for Nick so we tried it.  Maria made a homemade cake because I didn't have a box cake mix.:(  They said it was pretty good...who knows?  After dropping the girls off at choir practice, I made a mad dash to Lynn's Cake and Candy Supply Shop in Fridley to pick up pre-made icing.  Here is the result:

H is for Hunny!

The kids were so excited with the cake, and Nicholas loved it!  Here's a little video of Nick eating his piece of birthday cake.

Field Trip

In using Museum ABC, we focused on George Washington's hair for the H page.


So it made sense to go the George Washington Exhibit at the History Center.  It was very good!!


After the field trip and work Daddy and I went out for a little date night.  

Isn't he handsome?!

Next up, Mardi Gras update and Lenten plans.  Have a great week!
