February Catch-Up

We are getting settled in Fort Smith, but I'm still not caught up here with things from February in Texas.  I really don't like being this far behind, and having to lump so much together in one post, but here it is.

Rhett had a celebration at school for the 100th day of school. They were to wear some article of clothing with 100 of something on it, for the fashion show they were having.  Each student would model their attire one at a time on the stage. 

Rhett wore a hat with 100 pieces of popcorn, because he was "Popping with excitement about the 100th day of school".


At the fashion show the boy who went just before Rhett was wearing a jacket. When he walked out onto the stage, the teacher/announcer motioned for him to take his jacket off because his 100 things were on his shirt and they couldn't be seen with his jacket on.  When Rhett go up to go I guess he thought the teacher just didn't want them wearing jackets on the stage, so he took his off too. It was so funny because he looked like one of those models that take their jacket/coat off as they strut across the stage.



Of course the kids had Valentine parties in February, and of course the fun was taken out of it with the kids not being allowed to bring any sort of candy/food with their Valentines. "What is the point?" Hollace asked.
Here are their Valentine boxes we created to collect the candy-less Valentines from their classmates.
 An owl..........
and a couple of Valentine-eating monsters.

 Thad had a little Valentine party at school on what was actually his last day of school in McKinney. I accidentally gave the school the wrong date for his last day and they filled his spot before I realized the mistake. That meant I got to have him at home when the movers were there all week, instead of having two days with him at school instead. Awesome.

Here he is giving me a sweet little flower he had made. 


 We really aren't big on Valentines day. It's all a little cheesy to me, but we do get the kids a little something and did use it as an excuse to go on a date night. It wasn't on actual Valentines day but sometime in February anyway.

Just for fun on Valentines night we made chocolate covered strawberries for dessert. YUM!!


These two got all dressed up for picture day sometime in February. Aren't they cute?
 I guess that's all the excitement that went on around here in February- other than the move. I'll be back with some more catching up soon.

I must say - the popcorn hat is one of my favorite things in awhile.
